On Saturday, November 2nd at 7:30 p.m., singer Katie Welsh will present her concert, And Then She Wrote...Songs by Broadway's Female Songwriters, the second program in her Fall concert series at the Arts Council of Princeton.

Specifically, Katie will explore how these female writers wrote for female characters in shows like Bells Are Ringing, Sweet Charity, Ragtime, Waitress, and others. As always, Katie will provide insights into the songs she sings, and she will also share a bit about the backgrounds of the songwriters themselves. It will be another signature Katie Welsh "informative cabaret."
