THE PASS: A Story of Artistic Survival
“life -affirming” – “engaging” – “inspiring” – “deeply moving” – “a celebration of artistic endurance”
“Once hailed as the next big thing, I’ve learned the hard way that lucky stars, can rise and fall. No longer a young ingénue with my head in the clouds, now older and wiser, I can feel the power that aging has given — to the shape of my dreams.”
A Story of Artistic Survival: You have seen stories about successful artists and their struggles on their way up. What about the many artists who get close but never quite make it to the top? How do they adjust their dreams, live a fulfilling life, and continue to produce relevant work?
– NEW YORK Sep 27, 2017 – NYC performer, singer, songwriter Denise Marsa has undying dreams, a vivid spirit and a substantial music catalog of what many have called “catchy, beautiful, powerful” songs. She is taking yet another bold step in her career, which spans over four decades in the music business, as she prepares for the launch of her new music project THE PASS.
The story of THE PASS begins when Denise meets theater legend Gretchen Cryer and together they immediately go to work on Marsa’s idea for her one woman show: vignettes mingled with her original songs written over the past four decades. THE PASS evolves to tell the true tales of hit records, publishing deals with Warner Bros Music and Warner/Chappell, a record deal with a label run by a 21 year old French billionaire’s son, and Marsa’s own personal secrets. The production focuses on Marsa’s development as a musician, artist, and individual struggling with relationships and solitude. Filled with levity and candor, it centers on the concept of being true to your own definition of success, no matter what the consequences. read full release
