Part of the Bowl's Weekend Spectaculars series, the Aug. 5 and 6 concerts will feature Lemper singing tunes from Chicago and Cabaret as well as works by Kurt Weill. John Mauceri will conduct the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra; show time is 8:30 PM. The Roaring Twenties, according to production notes, will take audiences "on a journey to the cabarets and dance halls of the 1920s in sizzling Paris, smoldering Berlin, and hot, hot, hot Chicago."
