When giving up is not an option. Whatever happened to the other singer on Lucky Stars? In late 1978 American singer-songwriter Dean Friedman reached #3 in the UK charts with Lucky Stars, a duet with a young and up-and-coming female singer. Denise Marsa had moved to New York a year before and was performing with her own band when Friedman heard her singing at a club in the city. He then wrote Lucky Stars with her in mind to sing, however Friedman and his record label did not publicise her name on the single and consequently she became known initially as ?the sexy mystery voice?. THE PASS is Marsa's story; from the beginning of her career in the mid-70's, through the highly volatile, emotional 80's, on to the tech-driven 90's into the present day. From her start in her West Village studio apartment dating from 1810, to London to West Hollywood and back again, Marsa is the explorer, the innovator, and the woman drenched in tenacity - a woman unwilling to play the game by anyone else's rules, a woman determined to do things her own way in an industry dominated by men. World Premiere. THE PASS is a one-woman show that mingles vignettes with Marsa's original songs written over the past four decades. With true tales of hit records, publishing deals with Warner Bros. Music and Warner/Chappell, a record deal with a label run by a 21 year-old French billionaire's son, and Marsa's own personal highly guarded secrets, the show focuses on Marsa's development as a musician, artist, and individual struggling with relationships and solitude. Filled with humour and honesty, it centres on the concept of being true to your own definition of success, no matter what the consequences. Marsa is currently signed as a songwriter to BMG, the new music company.Performers Denise Marsa.
