Life is a Cabaret

Posted on Mon, Sep 1, 2008 at 8:46 PM

I’m the first to admit that I’m a big fan of Dartmouth’s Saints Alive! Theatre Company. There’s just something about talented young people singing and dancing their hearts out that I think is inspiring. That being said, I can’t rave about their latest production “Life is a Cabaret.” It could be that I enjoyed last year’s fringe production “Beautiful City” so much that it proved a hard act to follow. Or maybe I caught them on an off day, when some of the voices weren’t at their best. Or maybe the pacing of the show is too draggy for my tastes—I certainly perked up when there were lively and comedic pieces like the hilarious “(Not) Getting Married” or “I remember Love” with its inspired casting of two of the youngest members of the company as two old fogies. But even when not at the very top of their game, this talented troupe is worth a look.

Show Times: Friday Sept. 5 at 6:30 and Saturday Sept. 6 at 8:30 at Neptune Theatre Studio. $8.
