A Weill Night in the Madhouse
Please join us on Thursday May 17, 2012 at M Bar on Vine, 1253 Vine Street, Los Angeles, CA 90038.
A Weill Night in the Madhouse will be an evening of song and madness as friends and inmates of the theater cabal, Uranium Madhouse, regale you with the music of Kurt Weill to benefit the upcoming Uranium Madhouse production, an original translation of Bertolt Brecht’s A Man’s a Man.
With appearances by:
Dylan Jones * Terence Leclere * Matthew McCray * Andrew Perez * Yolanda Seabourne * Tamara Silvera * Brenda Varda * Ben Miller * JB Waterman and others!
Kurt Weill composed music for several of Brecht’s plays, including “The Threepenny Opera” from which we have “Mack the Knife,” one of the best-loved jazz tunes of all time.
Weill’s songs evocatively mix the seaminess of modern urban life with unexpected bursts of lyrical romance - - the original urban hipster avant la lettre.
Doors open at 7:00. Please call 323 856 0036 to make a reservation.
$20 cover + $10 minimum for food.
