Colabo Theatre Company will be doing excerpts from Hedwig And The Angry Inch on the Land Rover Stage at First Friday Jan 2 from 6-7PM. Colabo Theatre Company offers professional stagings of popular shows. They currently offer three shows.
Hedwig And The Angry Inch (Saturdays, 8pm) is a rock musical set after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Hedwig is the epitome of Glam Rock. She tells her life story through a series of beautifully bitter and comforting songs. Hedwig struggles with her past love, Tommy Gnosis, and her own self-identity. Once you experience the beauty that is Hedwig, you will never forget her.
Light My Fire (Fridays, 8pm) Jim Morrison’s poetry, outrageous antics, and timeless music, magically comes to life and is retold by the Wild Child himself. This show takes you back to the tumultuous 1960’s, when a young and charismatic college dropout, became the voice of a generation. Is Everybody in? Because the Ceremony is about to begin! Break on through to the other side with Light My Fire!
An Evening With Billie Holiday (Sundays, 5pm) takes you back to an era of juke joints, zoot suits, big bands, and jazz. The time is 1959. The place is a seedy bar in Philadelphia. The audience is about to witness one of Billie Holiday’s last performances, given four months before her death. More than a dozen musical numbers are interlaced with salty, often humorous recollections to project a riveting portrait of the lady and her music. God Bless the Child who misses this performance!
