The PennyPan Cabaret
Thurs 10/26, Fri 10/27, Weds 11/1, Weds, 11/8 all at 7-9pm
Nuyorican Poets Cafe

The PennyPan Cabaret explores themes of fantasy, causality and mythology by weaving together storytelling, music, poetry, 2 short plays and a hearty helping from the libretto of Mozart’s “Don Giovanni” to tell tragicomic tales of love, loss, hope and hubris. From the hills and dales of sylvan Arcadia to the gritty Greenwich Village streets, this comically brooding and musically inventive show is an aller-retour to a time and place that never quite was, but still seems familiar, because life is life is life.
