    Time is Right for LAVENDER SONGS Encore at Pangea

    by BWW News Desk

    He won't go away. In observance of the one-year anniversary of the U.S. election, Jeremy Lawrence brings back his fearless alter ego, Tante Fritzy, a Weimar era drag queen who stared down a madman at the twilight of a new Nazi regime. The already twice-extended "Lavender Songs - A Queer Weimar Berlin Cabaret" returns to Pangea, 178 Second Avenue, for a special election anniversary edition on Tuesdays October 10, 17, and 24, all at 7pm.

    Directed by Jason Jacobs, with music direction by Ariela Bohrod, this updated version of "Lavender Songs," which won a 2008 Bistro Award for Lawrence and Jacobs, and which Time Out NY calls "intimate, illuminating and surprisingly moving," began once-monthly performances on Inauguration Day, January 20, 2017. During its critically acclaimed sell-out run, Bistroawards.com called it "a beautifully realized evocation of a club in Germany in the '30s," adding that it's "a thrilling reminder of the power and strength of cabaret at its best."
