With only six more performances, this is a show you must not miss. John Kelly is an art/performance genius.

“Transformation through spiritual osmosis … magnificent.” — The New York Times

In Paved Paradise Redux: The Art of Joni Mitchell, John Kelly’s vocal and dramatic skills make for an interpretation that is at once haunting and hilarious, and will gratify even the most hardened “Joni-phile.” The arrangements (performed in the original key) combined with Kelly’s spot-on vocal acrobatics provide an experience that is both original and uncanny. – ABRON ARTS CENTER
