Carla Rossi Sings the End of the World

  • Alberta Rose Theatre 3000 Northeast Alberta Street Portland, OR, 97211 United States (map)
Poster by Michael Horwitz & Stephanie McCollough

Portland's premier drag clown CARLA ROSSI hosts a semi-one-woman cabaret telling the story of two star-crossed lovers: Weimar Germany and contemporary America. "Carla Rossi Sings the End of the World" compares the whirling, progressive creativity and freedom of 1920s Berlin with America today via a piano-accompanied songbook of Berlin theatre standards (with pianist Maria Choban), and dance support from cabaret girls The Dolly Pops. The always sincerely-insincere Carla guides the audience through this doomed romance with a winking eye and trademark banter, provoking us to acknowledge what became of Weimar Berlin and asking the question - could that happen to us?

This event is presented with ASL interpretation. "Carla Rossi Sings the End of the World" is funded in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council.
