Always Nina, A Tennessee Story and Songbook

One-woman show with singer/storyteller Nina Cathey Allbert

Welcome to the world of singer/storyteller Nina Cathey Allbert. In this unique, new, one-woman musical, Nina delights her audience with her stories and charms them with her songs as she digs deep into the traditions that define America, telling tales of bikers and beauty queens, teenage moms and evangelists, country folk and millionaires. The musical score, composed by Joan Burr, seamlessly reveals hidden dimensions in each story.
Jim Ruocco of the Connecticut Critic’s Circle stated in a recent review, “Always Nina-A Tennessee Story and Songbook is a significant storytelling and musical achievement.  It unfolds with astonishing clarity and insight…..It is chock full of marvelously timed jokes, whimsy and remembrances.  It is acted and sung with piercing truthfulness by Nina Cathey Allbert.  The music by Joan Burr is refreshingly honest and uplifting.  And the show, as a result, has a formidable strength and humanity that is ovation-worthy on every level imaginable.”
As the solo performer of Always Nina, Nina Cathey Allbert is no stranger to musical theater.  She has performed in dozens of plays and musicals across the country, including Hello, Dolly! My Fair Lady,” Steel Magnolias, and The Secret Garden. In 2018, Jim Ruocco named her “Entertainer of the Year” as well as “Best Actress in a Musical” for her role in Always Nina, which was proclaimed “Best Musical of 2018.” Nina now resides in Tennessee and Florida.
