International artist Yael Rasooly comes to Don’t Tell Mama
Internationally renowned and multiple award-winning artist Yael Rasooly presents her new cabaret show, Love Must Have an End, at Don’t say anything to mom for two performances: May 9 at 7 p.m. and May 11 at 4 p.m. The richly decadent world of the 1920s and 1930s in Berlin and Paris is dazzling in this performance by Rasooly and Pianist, Daniel Rein.
The public is invited to the vibrant world of German cabaret before the Nazis came to power, through the repertoire of Brecht and Weill, the songs of the Berlin cabaret, the songs performed by Marlene Dietrich and the French poetic songs of Edith Piaf. Rasooly and Rein tell the stories of the back alleys and alleys, as well as the glamor and exuberance of the final years of the Weimar Republic – tales of longing, sorrow, love, passion, resilience and dreams in the fragile and powerful gap between the past and the future.
Don’t say anything to mom is at West 46th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues. Seats can be reserved online at: https://donttellmamanyc.com/shows?month=5&year=2019&next=1. Phone calls: 212.257.0788 ext. 6. Don’t say anything to mom is a CASH ONLY ROOM. There is a cover charge of $ 15 and a minimum of two drinks.
