Umbrella, Robbin House Team Up For “Virtual Cabaret”

The Umbrella Stage Company presents the newest installation in its series of “virtual cabarets,” an online showcase of musical talents from past Umbrella productions and throughout the Greater Boston theater world.

This month’s cabaret is a special Black History Month edition presented in collaboration with The Robbins House, a local nonprofit focused on raising awareness of Concord’s African, African American, and antislavery history from the 17th through the 19th centuries.
Directed by Barbara Pierre and accompanied by David Coleman, performers Fatima Elmi, Todd McNeel, Jr., Chantel O’Brien, and Sabrina Victor will present songs on the themes of Black liberation, Black joy, and Black love.

Originally livestreamed informally from performers’ homes early in the pandemic, more recent @Home Coffee House cabarets have been recorded with live accompaniment amidst strict safety protocols in The Umbrella’s state of the art theater and orchestra spaces.
Free program, but RSVP required at https://TheUmbrellaArts.org/Cabaret.
