The Girl with the Incredible Feeling is a concert performance inspired by the life and artistic career of the famous American composer and director, Elizabeth "Liz" Swados. Liz’s life was defined by her eclectic talent and inexhaustible creative spirit. Besides writing, composing, and directing theatre operas and musicals, Liz also wrote numerous novels, poems, and children books, and created drawings and animated cartoons. The title of this show is taken from a children book that she wrote, set to music, and animated in 1976.  The performance aims to convey Liz’s multi-faceted artistic vision by weaving together autobiography and recreations of the artist in action—working, writing, composing, or directing rehearsals. Composed of some of Liz’s most beautiful songs, The Girl with the Incredible Feeling traces a musical journey from the ‘70s until the present, and simultaneously reveals the evolution of the American musical theatre from Liz’s point of view. The show also draws from its namesake children’s book that tells the story of a girl who loses her wondrous spirit and finds it again—a spirit that this performance hopes to share with the audience.
