About This Show

An emigrant feels like a circus man who is traveling the endless doroga (Russian for “the road.”) The sins of your past are inconsequential and your future is in limbo. It’s a human condition that is painted poetically in “Cabaret Émigré,” a new play by Sophia Romma, directed by Charles Weldon. The play contains ten Lewis Carroll-style testimonials that are told as cabaret acts by a collection of émigrés who are primarily Russian Jews (like the author), but also include émigrés from Latin America and Africa. All of them have no other motive than to entertain each other and their resulting acts are outrageous and macabre, like a journey down the rabbit hole.
