Melissa Etheridge to perform 'My Window' residency on Broadway
Etheridge debuted her concert event off Broadway in the fall of 2022, and she now brings it to the Circle in the Square Theatre for nine weeks only in 2023.
Come to her window! Melissa Etheridge will bring her concert event, Melissa Etheridge: My Window, to Broadway this fall. The nine-week residency will run from September 14 to November 19, with an opening on September 28, at the Circle in the Square Theatre.
"“I truly love Broadway, and it’s long been a dream of mine to tell my story and share my music there," Etheridge said in a statement. "I never felt more connected to this community and New York audiences than I did after telling my life story off-Broadway last year."
Etheridge first performed the show (then called Melissa Etheridge Off Broadway: My Window – A Journey Through Life) at New World Stages for three weeks last fall to critical acclaim. In the show, she performs her greatest hits, deep cuts, and everything in between as she shares stories from her life, beginning with her Kansas childhood and going through her career highlights until now.
The Oscar- and Grammy Award-winning singer first came onto the rock scene in 1988 and won her first Grammy in 1992 for the single "Ain't It Heavy." Her 1993 album Yes I Am featured some of her still-biggest hits, like “I'm the Only One” and “Come to My Window,” the latter winning Etheridge her second Grammy. She has released 16 total albums, and she also won an Oscar for the song “I Need to Wake Up” from the documentary An Inconvenient Truth.
In addition to Etheridge's songs, My Window features additional material by her wife, Linda Wallem-Etheridge. Amy Tinkham directs, and the creative team also includes scenic designer Bruce Rodgers, lighting designer Abigail Rosen Holmes, projection designer Olivia Sebesky, and sound designer Colle Bustin.
