Theaters were the first to close during the pandemic and they know they will be the last to open. But that isn’t stopping them from creating new art. Theater Latte Da is reimagining what a cabaret is in a virtual space with their new project, The Ghostlight Series.
The Ghostlight Series is five virtual cabarets launching January 2021 beginning with TWELVE BLOCKS FROM WHERE I LIVE featuring Regina Marie Williams and showcasing images of Minneapolis captured through her own camera lens. RE-CAST invites some of your favorite Latte Da actors to perform roles they never get to play. HEROIC ACTS OF MUSIC sheds a light on performances throughout history when musicians chose melody and beauty over violence and oppression. We are thrilled to introduce Minnesota audiences to the award-winning Q Brothers Collective with THE RAP PACK, a hip hop cabaret developed as part of NEXT UP—our robust new works initiative. Finally, MUSIC TO OUR EYES: DESIGNERS SING OUT puts our designers centerstage; you’ve seen their beautiful work now hear their moving stories.
The Ghostlight Series will feature more than 40 Minnesota artists.
