News   1933 And All That Opens at UK's Arcola Theatre April 2

April 2 sees the first night of 1933 And All That at the Arcola Theatre as Anna Zapparoli and Mario Borciani return to London with their acclaimed new show: a story of music, dance, racial hatred and refuge.

1933 And All That — a smash hit at last year's Edinburgh Festival — follows the careers of some of the twentieth century's most famous composers and poets — Wedekind, Brecht, Eisler, Weill and Hollaender — from the subversive cabaret underworld of 1930's Germany to the glittering lights of Broadway and Hollywood.

Featuring such classic songs as "Willkommen" (Kander/Ebb), "Alabama Song" (Brecht/Weill), and extracts from The Threepenny Opera and Lady in the Dark (Gershwin/Weill), the show also includes lullabies and poems by Brecht.

The Arcola is rapidly developing a name as one of the most interestingly programed fringe theatres in North London.
