JOHNSON CITY, N.Y. (WBNG Binghamton) -- As part of their Laugh Out Loud series, The Goodwill Theatre will present “LUDWIG LIVE!” written by Nancy Holson starring James Higgins and Gillian Hassert Friday, January 25th at 7 p.m. at the Schorr Family Firehouse Stage.
According to a news release:
In this funny 2-person comedy cabaret, the infamously temperamental Immortal Genius holds court at the grand piano and shows off his zany side…crooning his way through his greatest hits.
The premise of the show is the debut of Beethoven’s modern-day cabaret act, but the entire cast and theatre staff except for the stage manager have quit. Beethoven insists that the “show must go on” and coerces the stage manager into playing all the parts. What follows is a hilarious send-up of Beethoven’s life and times, his opinions on today’s politicians, the last 200 years in music, and scores of celebrities past and present, from Mozart and Papa Haydn to Elvis Presley and Sarah Palin.
“If you like Forbidden Broadway, Victor Borge or Saturday Night Live, you will love this. You don’t need to know much about classical music, but if you do, you will love it even more…” says CEO Naima Kradjian.
