The New York premiere of My Mother Has 4 Noses, the autobiographical musical play about caring for an ailing parent, officially opens Feb. 20 following previews that began Feb. 14 at The Duke.



Directed by Jeremy B. Cohen, My Mother Has 4 Noses is written and performed by singer/songwriter Jonatha Brooke. Performances continue through May 4.

"In My Mother Has 4 Noses, Jonatha Brooke tells of her experiences caring for her mother during the final two years of her life," press notes state. "Quite the character, Jonatha's mother was a published poet, a clown, and a Christian Scientist. She also had dementia... as well as 4 noses."

Brooke chronicled her experiences, which developed into a blog and then a collection of 11 songs, prior to its stage adaptation.

My Mother Has 4 Noses has scenic design by Caite Hevner-Kemp, lighting design by ML Geiger and sound design by Paul Mitchell. Ben Butler is the musical director, and Anne Lowrie is the production stage manager.
