Reviews & Ratings
Following six twentysomethings on their search for “home,” _On Our Own _takes a decidedly different look at the holiday season. Funny, nostalgic, sometimes sad, but ultimately hopeful, _On Our Own _offers something for every generation to connect to _as the show _examines the universal theme of “family” and how differently it’s defined, particularly around the holidays.
The cabaret format features songs by young singers and songwriters as they share the experiences and perspectives of a generation moving into adulthood: the myriad of emotions surrounding returning home, where is home?, who is my family?, where do I fit in?
About nine months, ago several artists at BCT got together and decided to form a cabaret group to feature the younger singers seen on the BCT main stage. As plans progressed, they found there was a great interest in music theater pieces written by new, young composers. Thus NEO, a cabaret group featuring twentysomething singers singing songs written by twentysomething composers, was born. The first show, Practically Grown Up, was a big success. Now the group is on to a bigger challenge – a show that takes place during the holiday season, but does not feature the warm and familiar holiday songs that most people come to expect at a “holiday show.”
Even though these songs may not be familiar, audiences will relate to the messages they carry.
