About It Just Takes One:
“It Just Takes One” is an entertaining, one-woman musical that pulls theater-goers into the charming, roller-coaster story of a young woman in her twenties who is busy embarking on a career in opera while struggling to balance her social life.
The gently humorous and at-times-poignant narrative is wonderfully woven throughout with apt musical selections that run the gamut from traditional Broadway, classical and opera, to works by contemporary composers.
Starring in the show that she also conceived and wrote has been a multiyear project for Kate Tombaugh whose real life experiences provide the framework of “It Just Takes One.” In addition to opera, Kate also sings musical theater, oratorio, and the premieres of new works and her show highlights her versatility and ranging skills. Kate’s background in dance and theater is put to good use every time she steps onstage.
