We had a great conversation with Grammy Award-winner Amanda McBroom the last time she came to the Berkshires. She returns to appear again with Barrington Stage for two performances Friday, September 23 and Saturday, September 24 at 8pm at BSC Stage 2 (36 Linden Street, Downtown Pittsfield). The happy news was announced by Julianne Boyd, Artistic Director, and Tristan Wilson, Managing Director. The popular McBroom visited the Berkshires last in 2009.
Her combination of performing sophistication and songwriting abilities makes her America’s First Lady of Lyrics. Her in-person appearances deliver an emotional depth that is the trademark of the greatest cabaret singers. Her intense focus on chansons plein le coeur means the words and meanings of a song have a heartfelt resonance. Cabaret is a style of singing usually found in sophisticated Manhattan after-hours clubs, or Parisian back street Boîtes in Montmartre. She is one of a kind.
