Chorus/Line Cabaret - William Finn

Victoria BC V8T 1G5
Gotta Getta Gimmick is throwing another musical theatre party - celebrating the fantastic music of William Finn! Featuring musical theatre songs and performances by more than 20 singers.
Finn is probably the most autobiographical of all music theatre writers and his most prominent work includes March of the Falsettos (1981), Falsettoland (1990), A New Brain (1998), Elegies (2003) and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (2005). In his musicals, Finn tackles tough, modern issues including overbearing mothers, gay parents, brain tumors and the AIDS crisis in an always funny, always touching style.
Stick around for Act 2 of the Chorus|Line|Cabaret, when the stage is turned over to the audience. Bring your sheet music, jump up and sing, play Diva Tag, win prizes, or sit back and take it all in.
Includes two intermissions.
