Lauren Fox: The Songs of Joni Mitchell & Leonard Cohen
A cabaret marriage of Mitchell & CohenBuy Now
The affair of Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen in the late 1960s only lasted a few months, but its resonance in the songs of these two iconic singer-songwriters is far-reaching. This intimate, dramatic, and sultry show is performed to perfection by the hottest star on New York City’s cabaret scene today. As Lauren Fox and her trio perform 16 songs—9 by Joni Mitchell and 7 by Leonard Cohen—they weave a spellbinding his-and-hers dialogue that brings new depth to Joni’s and Leonard’s bodies of work.
Who is Lauren Fox?
