chorus|line|cabaret 14: Leonard Bernstein
Monday, May 25 @ The Belfry Theatre, 8pm/$20
Gotta Getta Gimmick celebrates spring and the musicals of American master Leonard Bernstein at the Belfry Theatre, Monday May 25. Along with the legendary West Side Story, the charming On The Town and Wonderful Town make up what some consider to be Bernstein’s New York City trilogy. As always, GGG’s amazing workshop cast of Victoria’s best singer/actors will work with industry-leading coaches to explore Bernstein’s musical theatre work to take you on a trip of New York City from wide-eyed sisters arriving in 1935 Greenwich Village to three sailors on leave for just 24 hours to the mean late 1950’s streets that are Sharks and Jets turf. And of course a jaunt back to the Old World of Voltaire’s Candide. Join us for what is sure to be a spectacular cabaret filled with incredible music.
GGG’s legendary Act Two features the best musical theatre party east of NYC. Many have even referred to the event as “church for musical theatre lovers”! The Belfry’s Bar is open with wine, beer, coffee, tea and snacks. The incredible Jim Hill is at the piano.There are sing-alongs, prizes, Diva Tag, a 50/50 draw and our new favorite: musical madlibs. You can even bring along your sheet music and get up and share your party piece. Just remember, there’s only one rule: All musical theatre, only musical theatre.
