BWW Review: CHRISTINE ANDREAS: AND SO IT GOES is a Balm for Challenging Times at 54 B Photo BWW Review: CHRISTINE ANDREAS: AND SO IT GOES is a Balm for Challenging Times at 54 Below
by Ricky Pope - Sep 25, 2021

Christine Andreas' show, AND SO IT GOES, which opened at 54 Below last evening, doesn’t contain even a whiff of politics. But it focuses on the disjointedness the past decade or so has created in all our souls and holds up art and music as a way out of some of the chaotic noise that is making us lesser humans. It is a celebration of our collective humanity and an embrace of some of our best qualities as a species: kindness, tenderness, compassion, and love. That’s a lot to pack into a 70 minute cabaret evening. But Christine Andreas is no ordinary cabaret performer. In addition to her prodigious gifts as a singer and actress, she has always used her keen mind to focus on the bigger questions. She set out constructing this show as a way to cheer herself up. But what evolved is much more. It is a journey into the darkness and out again.
