SITI Company: Café Variations
Café Variations weaves longing, lust, lost love, found love and budding romantic adventure through dance, music and theatre within the social arena where anything can happen: a café.
This new theatre piece based on short plays by Charles Mee features Gershwin songs from The Great American Songbook — familiar tunes that evoke a time, place and way of life.
As the Boston Globe described it, Café Variations is “unabashedly romantic … a series of vivid and visceral explorations of life, love and identity [that] cast Gershwin classics in a new light.”
Each story stands on its own and, together, the stories create a rich narrative that celebrates the possibilities of life fully and fearlessly embraced.
Funded in part by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Theater Project, with lead funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
