“Etheridge is a superstar who on this Broadway stage gives her audience the genuine gift of spending two-and-half hours with her up close.” – Variety
“It’s a brave and unusually intimate offering, worthy of applause.” – Variety
Melissa Etheridge: My Window is penned by Melissa Etheridge herself, with a little extra creative juice from Linda Wallem-Etheridge – from “Nurse Jackie” and “That ’70s Show.” The show is choreographed by Amy Tinkham, who has also worked on projects like Aerosmith’s “Deuces Are Wild” Las Vegas Residency and “Dancing with the Stars Live.” Then, there’s the fantastic creative squad in action too: Emmy Award nominee Bruce Rodgers handles scenic design (Super Bowl Halftime shows since 2010), Abigail Rosen Holmes bringing in her lighting design skills (Phish and David Byrne); Olivia Sebesky handles projection design (James Taylor and Chad Deity); Andrea Lauer is in charge of costume design (“American Idiot” and “Bring it On”). Basically, it’s an all-star creative team pulling this show together – ensuring that all fans have an unforgettable experience!
Throughout the show, Melissa Etheridge will take the audience on a memory-filled journey through her life and career. Her storytelling monologues directly address the audience, sharing a wide array of her personal experiences. These moments are intertwined with songs that, instead of driving a specific plot, dive into the emotional depths of her personal experiences. With Amy Tinkham’s direction, Melissa’s delivery feels approachable, almost like you’re having a casual chat with a friend. She’ll even break away from the stage, stroll through the center aisle and engage with the audience. There’s a genuine sense of connection as she performs and it’s going the be the most intimate show you will ever have the chance to attend.
“An opportunity for devoted fans to get a more up-close-and-personal experience than is possible at huge-scale stadium concerts.” – DC Theatre Arts
“The rock goddess keeps the audience in thrall for more than two hours of storytelling, jokes, and wailing on her Ovation Standard 12-String.” – Vulture
Deadline wrote a review on the preview and called the show “especially charming.” The review said, “Etheridge, enhanced by a truly fantastic and gorgeous light and projection design (Abigail Rosen Holmes on the former, Olivia Sebesky the latter), sheds any semblance of a Ted Talker by sheer affability. She [is] great company for the nearly three hours, never gushy, pulling no, or few, punches (she names no names when talking about famous friends and lovers, but provides enough clues to anyone interested in Googling; in fact, she encourages it. Like I said, she’s fun).”
The most important takeaway from the show though is that yes, it’s a raucous, funny, and fun show, but it also highlights a part of Melissa’s own healing journey. It’s about her realization that she’s a lesbian, a truth she’s not longer afraid to hide. “She’s so open about it and has such fun telling this part of her story—about her various dates over the decades, including with her first wife,” said Variety who attended the preview as well.
