ACCLAIMED SINGER/SONGWRITER JONATHA BROOKE OPENS MY MOTHER HAS 4 NOSES at "The Duke on 42nd Street, a New 42nd Street® project"

Brooke's powerful one-woman musical is a love story chronicling her last two years caring for her mother

NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Acclaimed singer/songwriter Jonatha Brooke opens her one-woman show My Mother Has 4 Noses (http://4noses.org) at The Duke on 42nd Street. The new musical play, written and performed by Brooke, and directed by Jeremy B. Cohen, has already played to sold-out houses at The Playwright's Center, Minneapolis, in August; at The Philly Fringe Fest at World Cafe Live, Philadelphia, in September; and again at the Guthrie Theater's Dowling Studio, Minneapolis, in December. Jonatha weaves 10 new songs through her experiences and stories -- the daily theatre of loving and caring for someone with dementia.

Jonatha's mother was a published poet, a clown, a Christian Scientist, and she had dementia. She also did have 4 noses, and an indomitable sense of humor. In their final two years together, Jonatha and her mother would mine the daily goings on for theatre.

"My mom was a character," says Brooke. "In fact, I used to thank her on stage for all the good material."

"'How many people do YOU know who can say they have 4 NOSES?' she'd quip almost daily… 'Boolie, (my nickname) 'that's GOOD! Are you getting this down? We should make a play out of it!' My Mother Has 4 Noses is the result."

"In her last two years, we shared every human experience on the spectrum. My only instinct? Write it, sing it, tell it. And mom was absolutely complicit. So this is our crazy love story, complicated by religion and dementia."
