I Think I’m Fallin’: The Songs of Joni Mitchell

Conceived by Michael Shamata & Tobin Stokes

Show Info

“One of the best performances we’ve seen anywhere—including Broadway. Fabulous interpretations of Joni’s songs and stellar performances!” Patron’s online posting, 2016


Created especially for the Belfry in 2016, this stirring musical is a tribute to one of this country’s most exceptional musical treasures. Using only her words and music—including such iconic songs as Both Sides Now, Big Yellow Taxi, Chelsea Morning, River, and A Case of You—we weave a romantic story of heartache and love. It’s a celebration of the enduring legacy of Joni Mitchell, the poet and the composer, and a testament to her influence on generations of musicians, and a tonic for our times.

Why I Chose This Play

The happiest time I have ever spent in a rehearsal hall was creating this show with Tobin and our wonderful actor/singers in 2016. I have been dying to bring it back—and this season feels like the right time—!

Using nothing but Joni’s songs, a story emerges—of love, loss and longing—transforming the event from a concert into a moving and exuberant piece of theatre. Her music is unforgettable, and her lyrics are unparalleled. Michael Shamata

This production is supported in part by a generous gift from Diane Scott.
