Singer-songwriter Aimee Mann started writing some new tunes back in 2018 when she agreed to write songs for a stage adaptation of Girl, Interrupted, Susannah Kaysen’s memoir about her psychiatric hospitalization in the late 1960s.
It was material that Mann understood well, having had her own struggles with mental illness. The resulting music comes together on Mann's latest effort, Queens of the Summer Hotel. As part of a tour in support of the album, Mann will perform at the Kent Stage on April 27.
