Jonatha Brooke @ Roy and Marcia Armes Hall at Marathon Center for Performing Arts
Mar 23 @ 7:30 pm

Jonatha Brooke will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 23, as part of the Live@Armes series at the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts’ Roy and Marcia Armes Hall.

Hailing from Massachusetts, Brooke performed in The Story, a folk-rock duo with fellow musician Jennifer Kimball, from the late 1980s into the 1990s.

As a solo artist, the singer-songwriter has spent nearly two decades incorporating folk, pop and rock into her music. With a fan base built largely on word of mouth and extensive touring with her band, Brooke crafts emotional and intelligent songs with poignant lyrics and complex harmonies.

Some of her songs have been included in film and television, with her 1995 song “Inconsolable” featured in an episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” and she was also commissioned to write “What You Don’t Know,” the theme song to the Fox television show, “Dollhouse.” Her song, “I’ll Try,” appeared on the soundtrack of Disney’s 2002 sequel to “Peter Pan,” “Return to Never Land,” along with a cover of “The Second Star to the Right.”

Brooke recently finished several performances of her one-woman show, “My Mother Has 4 Noses,” at the Jungle Theater in Minneapolis, which the Star Tribune described as “a tender and surprisingly funny musical” tribute to Brooke’s late mother told through guitar- and piano-based songs, along with poetry excerpts.

The Live@Armes Series, presented by Blanchard Valley Health System, is meant to create an intimate, jazz club atmosphere, featuring general admission theater-style seating on the main floor or general admission bistro-style tabletop seating. Attendees will experience an up close and personal show with the artists, complete with banter and laughs, to create a memorable live music experience.

Main floor tickets are $25, the tabletop seats are $35. Tickets can be ordered by calling the box office at 419-423-2787 or visiting the box office in person at 200 W. Main Cross St. from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays.
