Roxy Theatre, West Hollywood, CA
North of Sunset, West of Vine is a musical story in two acts written, composed and performed by Raya Yarbrough. The show combines spoken word and original songs to evoke Hollywood at the end of the 1980s – both the place and the metaphor.
Vivid stories about the denizens of Hollywood Boulevard clash with the fantasy of old Hollywood in the eyes of a child growing up there, performing in dives with her musician father.
Raya is an award-winning singer-songwriter whose album “Raya Yarbrough” was released by Telarc/Concord Music Group. She is known to audiences for her singing on Battlestar Galactica and other shows, and performances ranging from the Playboy Jazz Festival to the Kennedy Center.
Previews of North of Sunset West of Vine are leading toa theatrical production and an album later this year.
