Pittsfield, MA – Jamie Bernstein, daughter of Leonard Bernstein, alongside a stellar cast, brings We are Women: A Bernstein Cabaret to The Colonial Theatre August 9-12. Sponsored by Stuart M. Fischman Esq. and Lee Bank.
From Jamie Bernstein and Michael Barrett comes We are Women: A Bernstein Cabaret. Devised from many of Bernstein’s songs for or about women, evolves the story of a mother and daughter who navigate the tricky terrain of their love lives, and, along the way, learn to accept themselves and delight in the love of others.
Rather than telling the story in a fully fleshed-out manner, the narrative unfolds in a more abstract, universal way through a narration, while letting Bernstein’s music fill the space between the lines. Because Bernstein’s music has such emotional depth and color, this material readily lends itself to this structure.
