The American singer, pianist, songwriter, copywriter and producer Constance Hauman is recognized in the world of indie rock as well as classical music. Hauman, one of Leonard Bernstein's favorite interpreters, has sung over 2,000 opera performances and countless concerts at the following venues: Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Welsh National Opera, English National Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Opera National de Paris, Berlin Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, London Symphony and the London Philharmonia. She wrote, played and directed the one-man show 'Exiles in Paradise,' which caused a sensation at 92nd Street Y in New York, Schönberg Hall in Los Angeles, and the Jewish Museum in Berlin. The Wall Street Journal wrote about the artist: 'Constance Hauman's bright, versatile coloratura soprano made headlines throughout the European music scene as the sex goddess in Alban Berg's Lulu. Her sparkling soprano can be heard in a live recording at Chandos, but now her performance song 'Exiles in Paradise', which has been crafted with a meticulousness that deserves a doctoral degree, is performed with equally divine verve by her. Ms. Hauman interprets Friedrich Hollander's melody of 'Falling in Love Again' with such a sensual brilliance and phrasing that is in no way inferior to Marlene. '

Recovering showgirl Miss Hope Springs was once the toast of Las Vegas. Now she's down on her luck and highly medicated. Join her, live at the piano, as she dusts off an array of all-original toe-tapping show tunes, finger-snapping pop and heartrending ballads from her fabulous vintage repertoire and presents her unique brand of 'sit down' comedy. You'll hear hilarious stories about her Ritz to the pits life in LA, Paris and...Dungeness. Still draped in the sequins and feathers she fled the Pink Pelican Casino wearing in 1972, this ageing ingenue is no has-been, she's the ultimate never-was.

Art imitates and pixelates life, and a co-dependency on little screens leads to big problems for Joy (Jeanne Laurent Smith) and Tom (Brandon Lee Olson), a disconnected but determined couple whose relationship status can best be described as 'buffering.'

Internationally renowned, multiple award winning performer, Yael Rasooly, brings her newest cabaret show, Love Must Have an End, to Don't Tell Mama for two performances: May 9th at 7pm and May 11th at 4pm. The richly decadent world of the 1920s and '30s in Berlin and Paris is on dazzling display in this performance by Rasooly and Pianist, Daniel Rein. Audiences are invited into the vibrant world of the German cabaret before the Nazis rose to power, through the repertoire of Brecht and Weill, the Berlin cabaret songs, songs performed by Marlene Dietrich and the poetic French chansons of Edith Piaf. Rasooly and Rein tell the stories of the back streets and alleys, as well as the glamour and exuberance in the final years of the Weimar Republic - stories of longing, grief, love, passion, resilience and dreams in the fragile and powerful interval between the past and the future.

In this world premiere of THE THINGS WE DO, playwright Grant Woods has created an interesting take on an affair of the loins, acted out by a most committed cast. The two adulterers, wanting to continue their illicit trysts, plot to introduce their respective spouses to each other with the purpose of them taking a liking to each other. As scripted by Woods and directed by Elina de Santos, the actors playing the cuckolded spouses have a variety of human qualities to act on, allowing them to convey sympathetic three-dimensionality.
