Edie Falco Stars in Own Personal Joni Mitchell Jukebox Musical


Twyla Tharp's new musical, Come Fly Away, uses the Frank Sinatra songbook to tell the story of four couples as they dance and romance the night away. At the show's opening on Thursday night, we caught up with Edie Falco to ask which musical artist could best tell the story of the actress's love life. "Joni Mitchell," Falco told us. "She has inadvertently — you know, she knows nothing about this — but she has provided the soundtrack to my entire life." But even though the Nurse Jackie star has been a fan since she was a child, she's never met Mitchell in person. "I don't know that I want to," Falco said. "I have a very specific image of her in my head, and her music, and I think that's fine the way it is." See more in our Party Lines slideshow.
