In 2018, singer-songwriter Aimee Mann began developing new songs after agreeing to provide music for a stage adaptation of Girl, Interrupted, Susannah Kaysen’s memoir about her own psychiatric hospitalization in the 1960s.
Mann understood the assignment well, having had her own struggles with mental illness. The resulting music is the foundation for Mann's newest album Queens of the Summer Hotel.
Mann will launch a tour this spring to support the album, but Cincinnati fans will need to take a road trip to see her. The singer-songwriter will perform Wednesday, April 27, at the Kent Stage in Kent, Ohio.
Mann founded New Wave group 'Til Tuesday in the 1980s and went solo in the '90s. She gained notoriety with her contributions to the 1999 film Magnolia, founded her own record label and later performed for Barack and Michelle Obama at the White House.
The performer has appeared in several television series and films, including Portlandia, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.
Mann has won numerous awards for her work, including two Grammys, an American Video Award and an MTV Video Music Award.
