I had the privilege of catching Melissa Etheridge's electrifying Broadway one-woman show, "My Window," on September 24th, just a few days before it officially opened on September 29th. Let me tell you, folks, it was a theatrical experience unlike any other one-woman show I've seen.

It felt like she was singing straight from her heart to ours, and her candid storytelling added a unique theatrical dimension to the performance.
Now, let's talk about the songs! She belted out some of her greatest hits, including "Come to My Window" (of course!), "I'm the Only One," and "Like the Way I Do." But she didn't stop there. Melissa also treated us to fresh renditions of classics like "Piece of My Heart" and "I Want to Come Over." Each note resonated with passion and authenticity, leaving the audience in awe and singing along to their favorite hits.
But what truly sets "My Window" apart is how it delves into the ups and downs of Melissa's career and persona life. She bared her soul on stage, reckoning with the challenges she's faced, including the heartbreaking loss of her son, Beckett, to an overdose in 2021. It was a raw and emotional moment that showcased the depth of her artistry and her resilience.
This show isn't just a concert; it's an emotional rollercoaster filled with nostalgia, laughter, and a whole lot of heart.
