NEVA SMALL
NOT QUITE AN INGENUE


In Neva Small: Not Quite an Ingenue, the Broadway and film actress
whimsically traces the highlights of her life though the music that has carried
and nurtured her, both professionally and personally. Having worked
closely with such musical and theatre giants as Bob Merrill, Hoagy
Carmichael, Leonard Bernstein, and Bock & Harnick, Neva’s selections
just as easily trace the history of the golden age of popular music
as they do her own maturation from a teenager on Broadway in
Henry, Sweet Henry to her signature role of Tevye’s daughter,
Chava, in the film classic, Fiddler on the Roof, to the release of
her hit CD, “My Place in the World.”A devoted wife and mother, in
NEVA SMALL: NOT QUITE AN INGENUE, Neva shares the challenges
and rewards of balancing a life in music with real life.
The result is an entertainment that offers some
comfortable memories and more than a few
surprises, all delivered with the intimacy
and joy of a seasoned performer.

NEVA SMALL: NOT QUITE AN INGENUE has
been directed by Pamela Hall, a former
Broadway ingénue herself (Dear World,
1776, & A Funny Thing Happened on the
Way to the Forum
) and, like Neva,
a mother of two daughters.

Together, they have lovingly fashioned
a reminiscence that carries us
out of our own not quite parallel
worlds into the realm of musical
mother/former ingénue.

Jeffrey Lyons
writes of Neva: she “has
a vocal vitality all her own…
a superb way of interpreting
a song and making it sound
as if no one else
could perform it
as well.”
