From the decision to leave home to discover new places through the adventure of making friends, homesickness, adjusting to a new life, and ultimately realizing that we can take “home” with us, this cabaret concert is about finding home wherever we make it.

Songs from Broadway shows The Wiz, Legally Blonde, Fifty Million Frenchmen, Can-Can and [title of show]. More tunes by Cole Porter, Simon & Garfunkel, Kerrigan & Lowdermilk, and Eva-Louise Rønnevig.

“We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” – T. S. Eliot
