RACHEL NELSON COMPOSES A MEMOIR MUSICAL
Minnesota storyteller/songwriter Rachel Nelson brought her memoir musical THE URBAN HERMIT to the 2013 United Solo Theater Festival on Nov. 3. 2013. This coming-of-age story about coming out, sobering up, and street busking is directed by Beth Margolis Brooks, founding member of the MB Adaptors Theatre Company.
Drawing on her theater studies with Kari Margolis when the Adaptors were based in Minneapolis, Nelson blends movement into her stories. New York aficionados of the Margolis Method can see in this show how that method lives in a storyteller.
THE URBAN HERMIT was performed Sunday Nov. 3 at 2:00 pm Studio Theatre at Theatre Row, 410 West 42nd Street, New York City.
