Seaglass Theater Company to Present KAHN ARTIST Directed by Tony Award Winner Faith Prince

On February 11 at 7:30 PM, Seaglass Theater Company will present Kahn Artist at Gallery X in the historic Seaport Cultural District of New Bedford, MA.

In a time long ago and far away, Eden Casteel was a frustrated teenage soprano — until her life was forever changed by a Madeline Kahn beer commercial. With iconic songs, compelling stories, and hilarious anecdotes, “Kahn Artist” is an intimate look at the trials and triumphs of Oscar nominee Kahn…and Eden too! With Jim Rice on piano. The cabaret features songs by Mel Brooks, Clarence “Frogman” Henry Heitzman & Reid, Cy Coleman, Susan Werner, Dave Frishberg, and Goldrich & Heisler.

Kahn Artist is directed by Tony Award winner Faith Prince, co-written with Roderick Ferguson, musical arrangements by Bobby Peaco and Jim Rice.

Eden has been hailed as “a vocal, dramatic, and comedic tour-de-force” by Jim Keating, Boston Association of Cabaret Artists and lauded for “A truly sensational performance…Brilliant, funny and a class act” – Carol O ‘Shaughnessy, “Boston’s First Lady Of Cabaret”
