Blazing lights flash bright, then dark, in the Cabarets of 1930’s Berlin, Paris, Warsaw and Tel Aviv.  Jewish artists on the move thrill audiences with their Weimar tangos, Paris Dada shimmies, tribal Yiddish romps, and lullabies of Tel Aviv.

Off-Broadway and international chanteuse, actress, and playwright Rebecca Joy Fletcher joins forces with Backstage Bistro award winning director John-Richard Thompson and Broadway veteran Bob Goldstone.  Together, they create a theatrical cabaret—a sparkling kaleidoscope—that pays irreverent homage to an era of illumination and darkness.
