Todd Almond (IOWA, KANSAS CITY CHOIR BOY, Public Works’ THE TEMPEST and THE ODYSSEY, GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY) returns to Joe’s Pub with an evening of new songs from his forthcoming musical IoO, a wild American romance written in collaboration with Obie Award winner Lisa Peterson. Chaos, snowmen, Florida, agita, yoga, Poseidon, skeletons, insurance offices, a giant, and a little blue convertible: It’s a love story.
“Almond’s brilliant lyrics and music are reminiscent of Hoagy Carmichael’s songs, with their bemused and fragmented stylings.” –The New Yorker
“Almond's music captures the plaintive, as well as the playful…” -Variety
"Soulful and original” –Time Out New York
"Unsurprisingly awesome, slyly punk rock…" -Rolling Stone
