“A remarkable cabaret show… Ms. Fox’s rendition of Mr. Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ was the deepest and most dramatically revealing of any I’ve heard.” -Stephen Holden, The New York Times

Through stories and song, Lauren Fox examines the creative genius–and conflicted desires–of two of folk music’s most enduring artists. Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen are widely known to be two of the best and most prolific songwriters of their generation. Less known about the fellow Canadian artists is that they had a relationship early in their careers that lasted only a few months, but had a lasting effect on their work. Many have speculated as to why the relationship didn’t last, and that’s what Lauren Fox explores here–BOTH SIDES–through their music, their histories, their triumphs and heartbreaks. Fox delves into the meaning behind the songs, giving us a better understanding of a painter and a poet who mesmerized the world through song. Highlights of the show include Mitchell’s “Chelsea Morning,” “River,” and “Both Sides Now,” and Cohen’s “Suzanne,” “Bird On A Wire,” and “Hallelujah.”
