TWEED TheaterWorks was founded by Kevin Malony in the early eighties and has grown from tiny late night shows in East Village dives to full-scale productions at premier Manhattan venues. For two decades TWEED has produced innovative and unusual live theatrical work, including performance art, plays & musicals, dance theater and category-defying extravaganzas. The TWEED New Works Festival (1985-1995) presented the early work of many of today’s recognized theater artists, including John Kelly. TWEED’s long involvement with Kelly began in the late eighties with the first theatrical incarnation of Pass The Blutwurstte, Bitte, and has continued in one form or another, for the past 20 years. The TWEED Fractured Classicks Series, a cult phenomenon, presents staged readings of classic American plays and films employing unique casting choices.

Production History

Paved Paradise Redux: The Art Of Joni Mitchell  | Open: 06/18/09 Close: 06/27/09
In PAVED PARADISE REDUX: The Art of Joni Mitchell, John Kelly’s performance is a musical and visual homage to the great Canadian singer/songwriter. His countertenor uncannily evokes Mitchell's own smoky soprano as he sings songs from the various stages of her career in their original key. He also plays dulcimer and replicates Mitchell’s guitar style by way of her signature open tunings. Kelly is accompanied on keyboard by musical director Zecca Esquibel, as well as additional musicians. The evening also features an original video component featuring Kevin Joseph (Broadway’s Threepenny Opera, a.k.a. Flotilla DeBarge) as journalist Tavis Smiley in a recreation of his PBS interview with Mitchell.
