Blue: The Songs of Joni Mitchell

Date: 27 May 2022

Queenie van de Zandt returns her Helpmann-nominated cabaret to the Hayes Theatre for a limited season of eight performances only. 

“Joni is my favourite singer/songwriter and I’ve been wanting to do a show about her and her music for some time,” says Queenie.

“She gave a daughter up for adoption early in her career and her music was so influenced by this experience. When I gave birth to my daughter, it felt like a perfect time to explore this mother and daughter relationship and the effect that becoming a parent has on your creativity.”

In Blue: The Songs of Joni Mitchell, Queenie, along with her live band, explores her love of all things Joni.

Using voice overs and intimate storytelling, Queenie takes us on a sonic journey through Joni’s life, loses and loves, affectionately reinterpreting her melancholy music, and intimately revealing the stories behind some of her most haunting songs such as A Case of You, Both Sides Now, Big Yellow Taxi and Little Green.
