Nellie McKay - "I Want to Live!"

Friday, November 18, 2011 |7 & 8:30 PM

  • For Everyone
“I Want to Live!,” inspired by the 1958 movie of the same name, is a zany film-noir musical biography of Barbara Graham, the Third Woman to Die in the Gas Chamber at San Quentin. This show combines Nellie McKay’s virtually unlimited gifts as a singer, songwriter, actress, pianist, ukulele player, mimic, satirist and comedian into a show that is much deeper than its surface might suggest.
