Joni Mitchell is one of the most important and influential female recording artists of the late 20th century. Her music evolved from deeply personal folk stylings into pop, jazz, avant-garde, and even world music.
Leonard Cohen is one of the most fascinating and enigmatic – if not the most successful – singer/songwriters of the late '60s. He has retained his audience through four decades of music-making.
Early in their careers, they had an affair that was short-lived, but which had a lasting effect on their work. This is the subject of Love, Lust, Fear & Freedom: The Songs of Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen, performed to perfection by film/television/stage actress and songstress Lauren Fox and her trio. The format consists of 16 songs (9 by Joni Mitchell and 7 by Leonard Cohen) creating a dialogue between these two masters in a breath-taking and moving revelation of familiar and well-loved songs. This show received rave reviews from none other than New York Times' music critic Stephen Holden who called the show "remarkable" and "dramatically revealing".
