When: Sat., May 25, 8 p.m.
Tapping into the time-tested tradition of Weimar-era performance, Burlington’s long-running theater troupe Spielpalast Cabaret presents its annual spectacular. Backed by the Spielpalast Band, a live house orchestra, this irreverent group of singers, dancers and actors offers audience members a break from daily drudgery though songs, satirical skits and searing humor. Select performances, known as the “scandalous shows,” enter the realm of risqué. Folks may arrive one hour early for cocktails and preshow entertainment, and should leave the kids at home. Prepare for what production manager Jenna Giguere describes in a press release as “a journey back to the Weimar years, where sass, jazz and wit are ever in supply.”
