CLO Cabaret to present 'Sondheim,' 'Caveman'
“Side by Side by Sondheim” and “Defending the Caveman” are the next two shows planned for the CLO Cabaret.
This is the first time that Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera has staged “Side by Side by Sondheim,” which will play May 23 to Aug. 18.
This musical tribute to composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim features music Sondheim wrote on his own or in collaboration with artists such as Leonard Bernstein, Jule Styne, Richard Rodgers and Mary Rodgers.
Included are songs from well-known Sondheim musicals, such as “Company,” “Follies,” A Little Night Music” and “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” as well as lesser known, but still interesting, songs from the television musical “Evening Primrose” and the film “The Seven Percent Solution.”
Rob Becker's comedic and surprisingly thought-provoking “Defending the Caveman” will return Sept. 5 through Oct. 13.
The single-performer show pokes gentle fun at the differences between men and women and offers humorous insights into feminism, masculine sensitivity and the erogenous zone.
Performances for either show are at 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays and 1 p.m. on some Thursdays in the Cabaret at Theater Square, 655 Penn Ave., Downtown
Admission is $34.75 to $44.75, Single tickets will go on sale in February.
