Don't forget to order drinks for intermission before the performance. Intermissions are plenty long enough to enjoy a glass of wine, if you avoid the long lines and order before.

I wore a silk dress. Some people get really dressed up (think prom dress), while others are very casual (think jeans). I love that this is a great opportunity to get dressed up..

Second half "For A Look Or A Touch" was excellent, and Nick Garrison very good as the "Cabaret" master of ceremonies. Chorus sounded good but comedy bits were a bit silly. Good to have the excellent dancers from Spectrum.

A wonderful evening. Great performances and much to think about after reading all the information about what the Nazis did to homosexual people.

An amazing concert. Different than any Men's Chorus concert I have ever seen. If you missed it, you missed something very special!

Description

This richly varied concert uses music to powerfully highlight the lives of gay men in Germany before and during the Nazi era.

Act I, Life is a Cabaret, brings to life the freewheeling high spirits of the pre-war Weimar period with outrageously entertaining music by Kurt Weill, Kander and Ebb (Cabaret), and songs made popular by German icon Marlene Dietrich.

Act II presents Jake Heggie’s For a Look or a Touch, a poignant look at two gay lovers torn apart by the Holocaust.

Starring special guest baritone Morgan Smith, staged by Intiman Theatre’s Andrew Russell, and featuring the full Men’s Chorus, this thought-provoking, ultimately uplifting musical drama is a soaring tribute to the strength of the human spirit.
