Lesley Nicol's new musical at the Pittsburgh Public Theater

The Pittsburgh Public Theater calls it:
"AN UPROARIOUS FEEL-GOOD MUSICAL!
You may know and love her as cherished cook Mrs. Patmore from the worldwide phenomenon Downton Abbey but now, instead of an extravagant meal, award-winning actor Lesley Nicol is serving up a delicious one-woman musical about her remarkable life. In her own words, photos, and songs, Lesley reveals how she overcame personal demons, found love, and achieved hard-won success on stage and screen. Pittsburgh Public Theater is delighted to launch the North American tour of HOW THE HELL DID I GET HERE? which is certain to have you tapping your toes to Lesley's storied journey in the theater long after the curtain comes down."
Mark appears onstage with Lesley to accompany her on the piano for their 10 original songs.

"THAT'S WHAT LOVE IS FOR"
6-time Grammy-winner Amy Grant's biggest-selling platinum album has been reissued for its 30th Anniversary, with a special demo version of Mark's hit song included. Amy's very generous quote about Mark's lyrics on the song they wrote together in an interview with Yahoo Entertainment: "You listen to (the first line of) ‘That’s What Love is For’... ‘Sometimes we make it harder than it is.' There’s such an honesty and pureness. Everything feels uncontrived to me. I really do believe that the best thing about music is the ability to lead us and to steer us.”
