Jonatha Brooke, currently starring in My Mother Has 4 Noses at the Duke Theater in New York City joins host Robin Milling. Jonatha tells Robin her mother who had four prosthetic noses, ('one for each season,') due to skin cancer, inspired her to write the piece which is filled with tremendously uplifting stories told through song and monologues. It's a Kleenex box worth of tears but you will also laugh along with Jonatha as she relates her journey helping her mother through her declining dementia. In fact the show has inspired so many people to tell their story of sorrow and loss that Jonatha has set up a virtual memory wall on www.fournoses.org for people to share.

A singer, songwriter who toured concert halls for almost 25 years, Jonatha says she comes from a musical family where her father played trumpet and her mother 'played piano rather badly but was passionate about music.' The show is a 'mom and pop operation' produced by her manager/husband Patrick Rains. Jonatha performs select songs from the show including The Wind, How Far You Go For Love, and Scars.

Don't miss this show! It's a universal story where even celebrities can empathize. Edie Falco and Bill Irwin came to the show and cried, sharing their stories afterward with Jonatha. And sometimes she pretends Meryl Streep is sitting in the audience because, 'she's got a great nose and mom would've loved her nose!'
