RATING | PG-13 Toni Finch on Feminism and Fighting Back A global citizen, a fierce feminist, an empathic storyteller and a relentless fundraiser, Toni Finch’s one-of-a-kind concert performance chronicles the women’s movement from suffrage to present day through the eyes of a millennial. Borrowing from classical and folk traditions, she weaves a story while singing the songs that inspired millions of women to use their voice and their vote. This show just might make you wanna: –Hug your grandma –Run for office –Dust off your bell bottoms –Get Out the Vote –Call your girlfriends –Tell your abortion story –Write your own protest song –Vote like your life depends on it You’ll hear 90s Country? Check. Vinyl Classics?? Check. Bulgarian folk tunes?? Check. Genre-defying songs that never surrender their sting? Check. Toni is Less puff. More presence. Less hope. More to-hell-with-them. Less ego. More enough already! Performing for the second time at Fringe Festival, and using her inside and outside voice to thrash the patriarchy, Toni will prove why dissent is patriotic and how optimism is still possible.
