An original play with music featuring the songs and letters of the obscure American singer, guitarist, and composer Connie Converse (1924-?).
"The mystery of American composer Connie Converse's disappearance in 1974 is ongoing, and she may be lost forever. But her spectacular music has been rescued and elevated to a marvelous level -- first by the music engineer Gene Deitch who recorded her in his kitchen in the 1950s, and very recently by Howard Fishman in a terrific evening in New York.
These are great songs with unusual diversity, and the sweet and bluesey and classical voices with Fishman bringthem vividly back to us. It's a great performance, and it demands more for Connie Converse -- concerts, a Broadway show, a film musical. Her music belongs to an America that barely knows it exists. It's time for someone to rectify this historical neglect of a remarkable artist of the song."
