CAROLE J. BUFFORD IN “YOU DON’T OWN ME: THE FEARLESS FEMALES OF THE SIXTIES”
Thursday, October 5, 2017 8pm
After selling out shows in New York and London, Carole brings her newest show, You Don’t Own Me: The Fearless Females of the 1960s, to the West Coast. With music made famous by Janis Joplin, Dusty Springfield, Tina Turner, Carole King, Lesley Gore, Dionne Warwick, Jeannie C. Riley and more, Carole celebrates the songstresses of the 1960s. Putting her own inimitable spin on these classics, she will delve into and celebrate a time of great change and transition in America and across the pond. The musical and cultural landscape was never the same after these bold and daring women planted their flags and ensured their voices were heard.
“The real thing: you know it when you see it…The way her voice, with its blues inflections, cut a swath, leaving nothing standing, tempts me to describe her with groveling hyperbole as an earthier, more acerbic 21st-century Barbra Streisand.” -Stephen Holden, The New York Times
“Her voice, bright yet sensual, soared…Bufford threw herself into each number; her exuberance and sense of humour won us over from the outset.” – Clive Davis, The Times (UK)
