    Synopsis: 

    I’m Getting My Act Together and Taking It on the Road created a sensation when it premiered in the late 1970s. In it, a former pop star ditches the romantic songs of her past and attempts a comeback by performing personal songs that reflect women’s changing roles and attitudes. The show stoked the fires of feminism, not only with its joyous rock score proclaiming empowerment for women, but because of its female songwriting team—a rarity in musical theater then and now.

    July 24, 2013: “I’m Getting My Act Together” was a long-running hit Off Broadway, moving on from the Public Theater and ultimately playing more than 1,100 performances. It struck a reverberant chord at the time, when questions of the changing roles of women in American culture were matters of heated concern. They remain so today, but the conversation often focuses on how women with established careers can maximize their potential at work while raising a family and pursuing several fulfilling hobbies. Instead of being asked to fetch ginger ale, today’s women are more likely to be wondering how they can find a couple of free hours in a frantic week to bottle their own.
