BWW Review: MOVING ON: SONGS OF JOURNEY. Mark Corpron Lays Out The Rules of the Road at Don't Tell Mama BWW Review: MOVING ON: SONGS OF JOURNEY. Mark Corpron Lays Out The Rules of the Road at Don't Tell Mama
by Ricky Pope on September 19, 2021

The joy and terror of doing cabaret entertainment is that it is amazingly confessional. There are no characters to hide behind. Only music, a performer, and his experiences. The vulnerability is exponentially compounded when the show you set out to do tells the story of your life. It is an extremely courageous thing to do. That is the task that Mark Corpron sets for himself in his show MOVING ON: SONGS OF JOURNEY, which opened last night at Don’t Tell Mama. The show sets out to explore not the destinations we arrive at in life, but rather the journeys that happen in between those destinations. It focuses on a soul with a permanent case of wanderlust and the loneliness that often accompanies such globe-trotting adventures.
