Rebecca Ungerman Takes "The Unwitting Wife" on the Road --- to Israel, No Less

We are pleased to welcome to StudioTulsa the inimitable Rebecca Ungerman, the great Tulsa-based jazz and cabaret singer and performer who's been a beloved diva / chanteuse / force of nature on our local music scene for the past twenty years or so. Ungerman is taking her newest show --- an original musical, called "The Unwitting Wife," which includes new as well as older songs (some of which date back to her first recordings or earliest efforts at songwriting) --- to Israel, of all places, for a series of performances. "The Unwitting Wife" is still, to a certain degree, in the works; it's a comparatively "young" project, seeing how most musicals are actually developed over several years. Still, the presentation of this work (later this week, on Thursday the 8th) at Israel's Tiberias International Theater Festival --- along with a pair of subsequent shows scheduled for Jerusalem and Tel Aviv --- is a major accomplishment for Ungerman, whose career in music has made other notable strides of late (including the release of a new CD, "Spinning Plates of Jazz," as well as the creation of her own production company, both of which occurred earlier this year). Ungerman talks about the origin and growth of "The Unwitting Wife" --- while also relating it to her overall (and ongoing) development as a musician --- on this edition of ST. (You can learn all about Rebecca Ungerman, and about her various gigs and projects and what-not, and her site.)
