Songs by John Denver and others
Orchestrations and Vocal Arrangements by Jeff Waxman
Original Concept by Harold Thau
ALMOST HEAVEN weaves together the songs of John Denver to create a uniquely theatrical narrative that reflects upon the country during a time of massive change.
Many of Denver's songs - including "Rocky Mountain High," "Sunshine on My Shoulders," "Annie's Song," "Leaving on a Jet Plane," and more - are rediscovered and reinvented, performed against a backdrop of America in the late '60s and early '70s, a time of social unrest and political protest.
