Enjoy an Evening of Cabaret with Roslyn Kind at the Joan C. Edwards Performing Arts Center on March 11

From Press Release

HUNTINGTON, WV- “Forget that Roslyn Kind is Barbra Streisand’s kid sister.  She’s too good – and too special – to have to worry about comparisons…” says Don Hickman of the Los Angeles Times. Roslyn Kind will share both stories and song when she visits the Joan C. Edwards Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, March 11, 2014 @ 7:30 pm.  Kind has been wowing audiences for many years as a multi-talented entertainer and has proven herself as a consummate professional. Don’t miss this exciting event, as Kind dazzles audiences the world-over – whether it be on stage or on-screen.


Fresh off the European stretch of Streisand’s World Tour, Kind will entertain audiences with family stories. Her vocal expertise will also be on full display. Having performed on Broadway and prestigious venues like the Lincoln Center, Kind will be sure to display her superstar pedigree.


Beginning her performing career in her early teens, Roslyn Kind released her first album Give Me You in 1969.  Soon, Kind found herself a rising star in the music industry.  From dates at the nation’s top night clubs to appearances on the Ed Sullivan show, Roslyn Kind was in high demand.  She was determined to not be a flash in music’s history, however, when she released her second album titled This is Roslyn Kind. Not only did this album show Kind’s ability to span music genres, but it served as an excellent follow-up to her debut album. As of late, Kind has released an album titled What May Be.  Much like her second album, this work shows off her musical savvy. Full of impeccable phrasing and intense emotion, this album has pleased Roslyn Kind fans the world over.


However, music is only one side of Roslyn Kind’s career. She also has a passion for theatre and has been featured in Broadway’s 3 From Brooklyn. And many non-Broadway shows also grace Kind’s resume. From, Show Me Where The Good Times Are to Leader of the Pack, Kind has shown herself to be a diverse entertainer and capable of mastering any entertainment challenge.  Even television couldn’t resist the talents of this amazing singer/actress. She boasts a very long list of shows and specials centered on her talents. Some of these include Switched at Birth, Gimme a Break, and a hilarious performance as herself on CBS’s The Nanny.  And while it was already clear that Kind had the necessary talents to be a star, these television appearances helped showcase her talent as a songwriter. This was particularly evident in Kind’s performance in Light of Love.  Kind even went as far as performing the title song for Tru Loved and Not Just Another Affair.  Add to this her experience acting with Florence Henderson Donna Mills, and it’s obvious that Roslyn Kind is a true queen of the silver screen.


It’s also clear from various media outlets across the country that Roslyn Kind never disappoints.  In an article from Nite Life Exchange, Danielle Miceli says: “The beautiful and elegant Roslyn Kind wowed the audience at Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College on Saturday, April 28th… Roslyn Kind is a ‘don’t miss it’ act. Hopefully she will return ‘home’ to New York more often, so that more people can experience her magic.”


Patrons interested in a truly unique show should secure their tickets to Roslyn Kind now.  Held in the intimate confines of the Joan C. Edwards Performing Arts Center, this show will be sure to entertain and inspire.  Kind seems to touch those wherever she tours and has a way of truly connecting with the audience. Reminiscing about times past, Kind will bring both her grace and emotion to the stage.
