Starring Ute Gfrerer (who performed in New Rep's Man of La Mancha), So Deep is the Night follows the life of Belinda, a vampire from the 1700s. Belinda laments her fate of being immortal, expressing her experiences through songs. In this cabaret-styled performance, Belinda takes you on a sensual journey from the Baroque era of England, to 19th century of Eastern Europe, to the roaring 20s of Berlin, and even Paris in the 1940s.
"We're thrilled to present this wonderful event with extraordinary singer/actor Ute Gfrerer," shares New Rep Artistic Director Jim Petosa. "Ute became part of the New Rep family during her time performing as Aldonza in our much-admired revival of Man of La Mancha in 2016. Her repertoire for this concert will showcase some extraordinary songs that highlight her engaging vocal rendering." "We're glad," shares New Rep Managing Director Harriet Sheets "to offer New Rep audiences these special events throughout our regular theater season. It's nice to switch things up and show off the talents of artists in our New Rep family."
