Following its sold out Sydney season in 2017, Queenie van de Zandt returns her Helpmann nominated cabaret, BLUE: The Songs of Joni Mitchell, to Hayes Theatre for 8 performances only.

Australian cabaret chanteuse and musical theatre star, Queenie van de Zandt, renowned for her artful storytelling and raw, emotive vocals, brings to you the songs, stories and art of the musical legend that is Joni Mitchell.

Renaissance woman, painter and poet, Mitchell created a soundtrack for the Woodstock generation.

“Joni is my favourite singer/songwriter and I’ve been wanting to do a show about her and her music for some time,” said Queenie. “She gave a daughter up for adoption early in her career and her music was so influenced by this experience. When I gave birth to my daughter, it felt like a perfect time to explore this mother and daughter relationship and the effect that becoming a parent has on your creativity.”

In BLUE: The Songs of Joni Mitchell, Queenie, along with her live band, explores her love of all things Joni. Using voice overs and intimate storytelling, Queenie takes us on a sonic journey through Joni’s life, loses and loves, affectionately reinterpreting her melancholy music, and intimately revealing the stories behind some of her most haunting songs such as A Case of You, Both Sides Now, Big Yellow Taxi and Little Green.

BLUE has been touring to sold-out houses and rave reviews across Australia and in the US since 2017. Along the way it has won a slew of theatre awards, as well as being nominated for the prestigious Helpmann Award for Best Cabaret Performer and the Sydney Theatre Award for Best Cabaret Production.

Blue: The Songs of Joni Mitchell is a beguiling night of melancholic songs, poetic storytelling and haunting vocals in a perfect intimate setting. More information here.

Among the singer/songwriters who emerged in the 1960s, none were as adventurous, incisive, or influential as Joni Mitchell. Her melodious tunes support her poetic and often very personal lyrics to make her one of the most authentic artists of her time. As a performer, she is widely hailed for her unique style of playing guitar. Mitchell's unflinching struggle for her own artistic independence has made her a role model for many other musicians. Mitchell is also a noted painter and has created the beautiful artwork that appears on the packaging of her music albums.

She first became famous for penning "Both Sides Now", a song that helped launch the career of Judy Collins. Her first album appeared in 1968, which featured her voice and her acoustic guitar with virtually no other accompaniment on most songs. Other highly successful albums followed. Mitchell won her first Grammy Award in 1969 for Clouds. She has won seven more Grammy Awards since then, in several different categories, including traditional pop, pop music, and lifetime achievement. More information here.
