Entitled Sing The Silence, the evenings concern "how one singer’s descent into 100 days of silence — total silence — compelled her towards an inventory of a lifetime’s experience, on and off the stage."
The shows include songs by women songwriters such as Georgia Stitt, Marcy Heisler, Jonatha Brooke, Susan Werner, Patricia Barber, Laura Nyro, Joni Mitchell and Dorothy Parker, as well as the title song written for Errico by Gopnik and Scott Frankel; and the New York debut of music by Jeanine Tesori. There is also a sprinkling of the classic American songbook by Cole Porter, Rodgers and Hart, Stephen Sondheim and Mary Rodgers.
The evenings "promise to be Errico’s most personal and soulful performance, a mediation on the role that silence, imposed and chosen, plays in the lives of girls and women."
