ROW: A Musical by Dawn Landes and Daniel Goldstein in Concert at Joe’s Pub

June 21 and 22 | ROW in Concert: A New Musical by Dawn Landes and Daniel Goldstein | Joe’s Pub

ROW Dawn Landes

In June, 1998, Tori Murden left her job as a project manager in Louisville, Kentucky, and embarked on what no woman had ever done: row across the Atlantic. She set out with her homemade vessel, The American Pearl, a small boat that had no motor or sail. To track her journey, she made videos along the way, even when she lost all radio connection with the outside world. She covered over 1,000 miles and rowed over 200,000 strokes. But she unknowingly rowed into the heart of Hurricane Danielle.

ROW is a musical with music and lyrics by Dawn Landes and book by Daniel Goldstein, adapted from Tori’s memoir, A Pearl in the Storm. Telling parallel stories of Tori’s journey across the ocean and through her life, ROW tells a heartbreaking and ultimately uplifting story of finding your heart in the middle of the ocean.  ROW merges Dawn’s folk/country tunes with Tori’s unique words into a distinct and new voice in Musical Theater.

Featuring: Xanthe Elbrick as Tori, Mary Kate Morrissey as Young Tori & others, Stephen Bogardus as Mac. Additional cast includes Maria-Christina Oliveras, Nicole Lewis, David Quay, Wallace Smith and Emily Young.

Here’s a video of Dawn’s TED Talk:
