Musical Play – One Daughter’s Story of Life with Her Mother Who Has Dementia

She has written for film, including Disney’s Peter Pan and Tinkerbell series; TV, including the theme for Joss Whedan’s Dollhouse; and for other artists – Katy Perry, Madeleine Peyroux, Lizz Wright, Joe Sample.
The interview will focus on Jonatha’s 2014, One-Woman Musical, My Mother Has 4 Noses, which played Off Broadway at the Duke Theater. It was a Critic’s picks in the NY Times, and NY Post and ran for 3 months. La Bey has personally seen the show several times, with a variety of friends and associates. Each time, La Bey has been so impressed with the beautiful storyline highlighted through gorgeous music, which allows the audience laugh and cry together, removing the isolation dementia can create.
