Kathleen Turner: That Famous Husky Voice Can Sing

Kathleen Turner's Voice is Famous and That Famous Husky Voice Can Sing | NextTribe

You remember Kathleen Turner—she of the envy-invoking husky voice—from movies like Body Heat, Romancing the Stone and Prizzi’s Honor. And perhaps for her memorable stage performances as well: She starred in the Broadway revivals of Cat on the Hot Tin Roof and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Proving that her memorable pipes can also carry a tune, she’s now performing at New York City’s famed Café Carlyle with a cabaret-style show called Finding My Voice.

After a run in England, she’s now on home soil, singing such classics as “Send in the Clowns” and “On the Street Where You Live,” but what makes the show memorable isn’t just the music—it’s the personal stories she tells, culled from her 41 years in the business (she has stories to tell about everyone from Maggie Smith to Jack Nicholson) and her 63 colorful years on the planet.

While her run ends soon, fans are hoping for a tour so they can hear Kathleen Turner’s voice, up-close and personal, in her remarkably candid way.
