My Mother Has Four Noses
2014 companion release to Jonatha Brooke's musical play, written and performed by Jonatha herself and opening on Broadway in February, 2014. The project is an autobiographical journey that explores her mother's health challenges as well as the impact on Brooke as an artist and a daughter. Seeds of this powerfully expressive project were sown two years earlier when Jonatha moved her mother to New York. 'It was quite an adventure. My mother had always been dramatic, but in her dementia, she elevated her own particular brand of theater to a whole new level. Almost daily she would play, 'Boolie! Are you getting this down? This is good! We should make a play out of it!' Jonatha recalls. 'So I did. I wrote a play - it's a musical, and I've written an album of new material to accompany it.'
