’ROUND THELONIOUS in New York!
Anita was thrilled to be invited to perform an excerpt from her new musical show ‘ROUND THELONIOUS at New York’s Performing Arts Library on July 15th, 2014. Along with other alumni from the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center’s Cabaret and Performance Conference 2013, the event was part of an exhibition celebrating 50 years of the O’Neill.
‘ROUND THELONIOUS is a one-woman show based on the relationship between a rebellious Rothschild woman and one of America’s greatest jazz composers Thelonious Monk.
When Baroness Pannonica de Koenigswarter heard a recording of Monk’s ‘Round Midnight, she fell under a kind of spell, transforming her life forever. She walked away from her marriage and world of privilege to become a part of Monk’s jazz subculture in 1950′s New York.
