 Places to Live:  Traveling Music For the Restless image
Evangelia Kingsley and Chip Prince return to Cornelia Street with Places to Live: Traveling Music For The Restless, directed by Eliza Beckwith. Travel the world with them as they explore thoughts of home, expatriate-ism, ex-patriotism and elections past and present through the music of Bernstein, Bolcom, Coward, Poulenc, Porter, Waits and so many many more. Evangelia’s and Chip’s previous collaboration Twisted: A Tribute To Lunacy was called “unusual, funny and frequently emotionally powerful” by Cabaret Scene Magazine.

The Boston Globe has called Evangelia “effective,” and “impassioned.” The Star-Ledger has called her “riveting.” David Finkle of Backstage said “I’m still thinking about the hilarious yet subtle drunk she threw during the William Bolcom-Arnold Weinstein ‘At the Last Lousy Moments of Love.’” He called her, “[d]ark, fleshy, sexy, and proudly Greek” and ended his enthusiastic review of her with “. . . she’s good enough for an audience to want to hear plenty more.”
