The Story of Eva Cassidy

Over the Rainbow is a compelling musical which tells the life story of this legendary artist, following Eva's life through dramatic scenes and stunning live renditions of her music including a haunting interpretation of 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow'. Tracing Eva's life from the age of 10 growing up in a musical family, to her first professional gig aged 18, her first meeting with her boyfriend and mentor Chris Biondo, a rousing recording at Blues Alley with Chuck Brown and culminating in her poignant and tragic death at the tender aged of 33. This moving show pays a genuine and heartfelt tribute to a true artist who was not interested in fame and fortune, but wanted nothing more than to create beautiful music.
