Signature Theatre’s Sizzlin’ Summer Cabaret begins July 16 with the return of the 21/24 program and a new musical reading based on the novel “I Capture the Castle” by Dodie Smith at 8 p.m. It is the coming-of-age tale of two English who find themselves becoming women in romantic — yet squalid — circumstances as their novelist father and bohemian stepmother Topaz focus on their art rather than their children. The musical will also be read on July 17.
There are seven other events in this series in July.
July 20 is an open mic night at 8 p.m. Will Gartshore’s “All the Kings Men: Broken Ballads with Stiff Upper Lips” will be performed on July 21 at 8 p.m. and July 22 at 7:30 p.m. Peter Fox will be performing on July 22 at 9:30 and Marc Kudisch will perform on July 27 and 28 at 8 p.m.
“Let Me Sing & I’m Happy: The Music of Irving Berlin” will be performed on July 29 at 7:L30 and 9:30 p.m. Colleen McHugh and Bob McDonald will both be performing on July 30 at 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. respectively.
