About the show

Little Matchstick Factory presents a solo show detailing the true story of Nannerl Mozart, the sister of Amadeus: a prodigy, keyboard virtuoso, and composer in her own right. More…

This one-woman show is based on facts, stories, and lines pulled directly from the Mozart family's letters. The production includes music composed by Amadeus Mozart and Marianna Martines (a female composer who inspired Nannerl), as well as original compositions for clavichords, music boxes, bells, teacups, fans, and other ordinary objects. The performance creates a multi-sensory experience and transports the audience into a world of beauty—but also of overwhelming restrictions and prejudice. This is where the other Mozart at last tells her story.

See it if you are willing to take a chance on the small, off-Broadway solo show that this is. Interesting feminist critique, enchanting performance.

Don't see it if The show is limited by what was known about the real Nannerl and her real life. With more fiction it might be more compelling but less true.

"Christopherson is by turns commanding, charming, and childlike in the role...Milo’s thoughtful script empathizes as much with the Mozart family as with Nannerl herself...Powerful and evocative in any context, this revival could not come at a more fitting time. As women’s voices simultaneously ga...

for a previous production "Ms. Milo has a balletic grace, and it’s easy to imagine her slender hands at the keys of a clavichord. But Nannerl’s uneventful life, unjust though it may have been, is a dramaturgical liability. The show becomes a sad what-if."
