Linda Roth returns for another memorable cabaret. Linda's appearances in Follies, Sunset Boulevard, The Great One and as the spirited Trudy in last year's Christmas at Lazarus, make her a favorite performer at Short North Stage. So have her several cabarets, most recently 'The Apple Doesn't Fall' with Johnny Steiner and her daughter Allison. We are delighted to welcome her back as she takes her audience through an evening of some of her most embarrassing moments. Maybe This Time she can redeem herself! Don't miss Linda (and some special guests) for what is sure to be evening filled with hilarity and great singing!

The music includes a glass waterfall, tuned wine glasses, and an instrument made from 29 glass bottles created by Estes himself that will all be used live in performance. This unique collaboration brings movement and music together to create a stunning portrayal of youthful innocence, despair, and the will to survive the darkness of eternal rest.

YANK! explores what it means to be a man, and what it is to fall in love and struggle to survive in a time and place where the odds are stacked against you. Suffused with songs (swing, big band, boogie-woogie) it explores what stories get told in wartime, and how WWII became the great catalyst in bringing gay men and women together. While all the characters in Yank! are fictional, all of the situations and viewpoints come directly from memoirs and oral histories of gay (and straight) service members who took part in WWII.
