UNSEEN - A Tribute to Marni Nixon
Starring Melody Beck

Melody Beck returns to NLWF by public demand to once again “shine a light on the unseen star of Hollywood screen musicals” Marni Nixon. A tribute to the woman remembered as ‘The Voice’ of Hollywood’, whose dulcet tones memorialize some of the greatest music theatre tunes of our time. Featuring songs from hit films including West Side Story, My Fair Lady, The King and I and many more.

Written and Performed by Johanna Allen / Directed by Stuart Maunder

Hit after hit written by Harold Arlen, timeless music that has seeped into our consciousness and made Judy Garland, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee and Lena Horne famous.

Acclaimed singer actor Johanna Allen takes you back to the Cotton Club in 1930’s Manhattan, against a backdrop of segregated America and patriarchal Hollywood. Allen explores the survivor stories of Arlen and his muses, and the volatile uncertain nature of success.

Despite Arlen’s personal enigma, these are ‘The Songs That Got Away.’
