Leonard Cohen’s death put a country into mourning.
No Way to Say Goodbye: Songs of Leonard Cohen showcases his work, in all its power and delicacy. The show was born in the Gladstone dressing room during Bear & Co.’s production of Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris last year, as the cast began to imagine their own personal farewell to the legendary poet and songwriter.
With a strong vocal ensemble backed by a variety of instruments, Bear & Co. brings songs from all phases of his career to life on the Gladstone stage, celebrating Cohen the man, the seeker after truth, the obsessive lover, the unrelenting artist. No Way to Say Goodbye digs deep into his incredibly varied songbook, ranging from his days as a folk balladeer and the early acoustic hits such as “Suzanne,” through his surprising transformation into a pop-rock performer in the 70s and 80s, and on to his late-life period of renewed creative energy, including last fall’s remarkable and bittersweet final album You Want It Darker.
Leonard Cohen, towering Canadian icon, is in our blood. Join Bear & Co. to help pay tribute, and to voice our collective Goodbye.
