Leading Ladies - A Cabaret Musical
At the opening of the play, Mary, a young actor tortured by doubts about her ability, debates whether or not she should abandon her career in “The Voice of My Critics.” The dressing room comes alive with ghosts of famous women actors, and one by one they reenact critical moments in their own careers, when they had to confront fear and doubt:
A note about the music: The fourteen musical numbers run the gamut from bump-and-grind to gospel stomp, from three-part harmonies to piano bar blues. Cabaret numbers with the emphasis on entertainment. The play and lyrics are by Carolyn Gage, and Music by Teresa Wilhelmi.
The show's production team includes Director - Sadagat Aliyeva, Choreographer - Staci Schwarz, Music Director - Bruce Martin, Technical Director - Mark Mayhew, Stage Manager - Lily Schwarz. Iris Seaman and Arick Andersen will dance in the production.
