My Mother Has 4 Noses is a beautifully crafted one-woman-musical about a mother and daughter's relationship. Songs, stories and poetry are weaved together to tell the story of a mother with Alzheimer's and the daughter who cared for her.
How many people do you know who can say they have 4 noses? Jonatha's mom did have 4 noses, at least as many names, and an indomitable sense of humor. She was a published poet, a clown, a Christian Scientist, and she had Alzheimer's. In their final two years together, Jonatha and her mother would mine the daily goings-on for theatre. "Boolie (Jonatha's nickname), are you getting this down? We should make a play out of it!" My Mother Has 4 Noses is the result.
In this powerful musical, acclaimed singer-songwriter Jonatha Brooke tells a very unusual mother-daughter love story. "Who knew the distinguished NY singer-songwriter was such a good actress, comedian, writer?" says Jon Bream of the Mpls Star & Tribune. "Her one-woman play with music is poignant, powerful and funny."
