Jason Graae to Guest Star in Kritzerland's 7th Anniversary Concert, THE SONGS THAT GOT AWAY VII

Jason Graae to Guest Star in Kritzerland's 7th Anniversary Concert, THE SONGS THAT GOT AWAY VII

For Kritzerland's 80th show - let's repeat that - for the 80th show and seventh anniversary of Kritzerland shows, the longest-running cabaret show of its kind in LA history, Kritzerland presents The Songs That Got Away VII, its super-duper, crazy mixed-up anniversary show.

The concert is set for Sunday, September 3, 2017 at 7pm and features Roger Befeler, Kerry O'Malley, Jenna Lea Rosen, Hayley Shukiar, Sami Staitman and Robert Yacko, with special guest star Jason Graae and music director Alby Potts.

For these shows, Kritzerland digs deep and does mostly material that is new to them, some old favorites, a brand new What If, a rare Sondheim song that few have heard, the world premiere of a Sherman Brothers song, rare cut songs from Wicked, The Happy Time and others, and a few classics thrown in - in other words, a Kritzerland show. The show features a wonderful cast and musical director, and maybe even a surprise or two the presenters won't know about until the last minute.

Kritzerland's anniversary shows sell out very quickly - to show the group's thanks and appreciation for its wonderful and loyal audiences, the cover charge is half price for this show.

Kritzerland began its adventure back in September of 2010 and as those who've attended its shows know, you never know quite what to expect, other than great songs being sung by great composers and little histories of the songs and shows they're from.

So, join Kritzerland to celebrate its 80th show and seventh anniversary. You'll be glad you did. Kritzerland is produced and hosted by Bruce Kimmel and co-produced by Doug Haverty.
