Local Residents Cast In World Premiere CafA? Variations At The Cutler Majestic Theatre
2012 Mar 28More than 50 Emerson College students, under the direction of Anne Bogart, will present the world premiere of CafA(C) Variations, a distinctive production celebrating cafA(C) culture using vignettes from Charles Mee's CafA(C) Plays combine with music exclusively from the Gershwin songbook. The large ensemble cast features SITI Company members (in residence at Emerson College) performing alongside young artists from the Department of Performing Arts at Emerson College, incorporating dialogue, music, and dance to render romantic scenes ubiquitous to the lively world of the cafA(C). Each song and scene is a discreet short play but fits together as a whole piece, with a complete narrative.
