NY TIMES ARTICLE ABOUT THIS SHOW >>
From the mid-sixties to the early-seventies, something magical took place in Southern California...and it all happened in a bucolic stretch of hills, just above the Sunset Strip, called Laurel Canyon. Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, The Byrds, The Mamas & The Papas, The Eagles, and Crosby, Stills & Nash, to name just a few, all lived, loved, created, and collaborated there. Lauren Fox tells the story of this epic time in American music history, and sings the songs that it inspired.

"Ms. Fox, with her long straight hair and penetrating gaze, resembles a brunette version of the young Ms. Mitchell crossed with the actress Vera Farmiga. Her show strings together 16 songs — 9 by Ms. Mitchell and 7 by Mr. Cohen — into a spellbinding his-and-hers dialogue that conjures the charged erotic climate of the hippie culture of the Woodstock era, when sex was infused with romantic mysticism." -Stephen Holden, The New York Times
"...there is electricity in the air. It is thrilling to observe how accomplished she is, much in the way it always is when you discover talent and share the excitement over a performance that makes you want to tell everyone that they must see for themselves. Ms. Fox is indeed that rarity." -William Wolf, WolfEntertainmentGuide.com
"An exceptionally restrained Fox keeps gestures and expressions in check. Full attention turns...to communicating the deceptively simple lyrics. She is an actress." -Alix Cohen, Cabaret Scenes
”Lauren Fox is quite clearly a very talented actress and singer, but also a courageous artist committed to her own ideas of what she wants to express in a cabaret setting. And as a result, Lauren brought us all into a world we never expected to find at the Metropolitan Room—intimate, fascinating and magical." -Sandi Durell & Susan Hasho, Times Square Chronicles
