MAUREEN McGOVERN’S MUSICAL MEMOIR, “A LONG AND WINDING ROAD,” OPENS AT HUNTINGTON THEATRE

Grammy Award winner, Broadway star, and pop icon Maureen McGovern presents her musical memoir, A Long and Winding Road, at the Huntington Theatre in Boston from October 9 through November 15, 2009.

Conceived and written by Philip Himberg and Maureen McGovern and presented in cooperation with Arena Stage, A Long and Winding Road chronicles the moments that define the Baby Boomer Generation. Ms. McGovern returns to her roots as a folk singer as she performs the classic songs The New York Times has dubbed “the second half of the Great American Songbook.”


Sundance Institute Producing Artistic Director Philip Himberg directs; Jeffrey Harris provides musical direction and accompaniment.


McGovern’s almost 40-year career includes Grammy Award nominations for “Best New Artist” and “Best Traditional Pop Vocal,” a Grammy Award for “Best Musical Recording for Children” for her participation in “Songs from the Neighborhood: The Music of Mister Rogers,” and the Academy Award-winning Gold Records “The Morning After” (Billboard #1) and “We May Never Love Like This Again.” Her PS Classics release A Long and Winding Road was praised by The New York Times as “a captivating musical scrapbook from the 1960s to the early ‘70s. Ms. McGovern is blessed with a vocal technique second to none.” Other critically acclaimed musical tributes include her Gershwin, Arlen, Rodgers, Marilyn and Alan Bergman CDs and more.
