’33 A Kabarett: a One-Man Weimar Musical.
“An incredible one-man show…. brilliant acting.” – PBS America
“He will have you close to tears one moment and laughing the next – an absolute joy to watch” – New Orleans Defender Magazine
In the ruins of a Cabaret theatre, an actor tumbles onto a darkened stage. When the lights come up he finds himself alone. His friends and colleagues have disappeared, arrested by the authorities. Only their glittering, torn costumes remain. In order to escape the same fate and survive, the actor should run and vanish into the night, but an audience has slipped through the broken door. So, in tribute, he uses all his talents to joyously recreate the acts of the missing company. The Funnyman, the Showgirl, the Song and Dance Man and the rest of his troupe spring to life as the actor pays homage to his disappeared friends. ’33 (a kabarett) features 9 songs with new arrangements by Bremner’s jazz trio. ’33 (a kabarett) is highly imaginative, imagistic, explosive and full of surprise. Inspired by the true story of the fallen Eldorado Club in Berlin.
