This cabaret is an affectionate look at life and love – in three languages – English, French and German. It’s quirky with a mix of the dramatic one minute and hysterically funny the next. It's appealing and accessible to everyone – even if they don’t speak all the languages. It includes songs such as: Wer Liebe Sucht (Stand by your Man), Je Suis Malade (Serge Lama), Talk (David Warrack), Their Things Were Out! (Hank Beebe), Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie (in German), Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen)."
