    Maureen McGovern in A Long and Winding Road

    Pop icon and tour-de-force Maureen McGovern takes us on an introspective and moving musical journey that chronicles the moments that define the Baby Boomer generation, from the hope-filled years of the 1960s, through the dark years of Vietnam and the AIDS crisis, to today's promise of a better tomorrow.

    Pop icon and tour-de-force Maureen McGovern takes us on an introspective and moving musical journey that chronicles the moments that define the Baby Boomer generation, from the hope-filled years of the 1960s, through the dark years of Vietnam and the AIDS crisis, to today's promise of a better tomorrow. Best known for her breakout hit, the Academy Award-winning "The Morning After," McGovern returns to her roots as a folk singer as she performs the classic songs The New York Times has dubbed "the second half of the Great American Songbook" including the music of Bob Dylan, Carole King, and Randy Newman, and the songs "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?," "Imagine," "Fire and Rain," and many more.

    "A captivating musical scrapbook from the 1960s to the early '70s. Ms. McGovern is blessed with a vocal technique second to none." — The New York Times

    A Long and Winding Road is presented in cooperation with Arena Stage.
