Before the age of iTunes, cassette mixtapes served as the soundtracks of our lives: diaries of love, friendship, heartbreak, adventure and musical discovery. Created with care, and shared with our friends, boyfriends and girlfriends, mixtapes were filled with songs that made us laugh, cry, dance and sing along. From Broadway to Britney, singer-songwriters to the American songbook, '80s lite rock to Lilith Fair, Karen Gross revisits and reimagines the songs, the stories, the memories: the mixtape.
"Cabaret Mixtape" is directed by Lina Koutrakos, with musical direction by Rick Jensen, who between them have earned multiple Manhattan Association of Cabarets & Clubs (MAC) Awards among other accolades.
