    Tina grew up in a Learjet. Her grandfather was a beloved Vaudeville comedian a prankster extraordinaire. Her brother is one of this country’s top experts in UFOs. Her children are artists and musicians and restauranteurs. It’s a beautiful mess that has been the soil for her music, which has been played on radio stations nationwide. She’s been named one of the Dramatists Guild’s “50 to Watch” (2007), has gotten the New Emerging Outstanding musical theatre writer award (2010) from the York Theatre, performed in cabarets, and recently fulfilled a commission to write a song honoring the 2011 recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, Leymah Gbowee. She’s written four musicals (one of which has been published), and produced three cds. And now she’s pursuing her deepest dream of teaching yoga (Thanks, Yoga Polarity!). It makes for an interesting concert. Please come share a wonderful evening of songs and stories from this woman with a gift for exploring all aspects of the human condition. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Yoga Polarity.
