Love is a Poverty You Can Sell: Part of Next Stage Theatre Fest in Toronto

From a media release:

January 5th to 15th, 2012 @ The Factory Theatre - Part of the Next Stage Theatre Festival

Check out the rest of the Next Stage schedule here

Join us for a night of song, story, and sin! Soup Can Theatre is proud to announce that - after taking the 2010 Fringe Festival by storm - its critically acclaimed show, Love is a Poverty You Can Sell, is returning to the stage as part of the 2012 Next Stage Theatre Festival! This condensed “highlights” version of the show will be part of the Next Stage Festival’s inaugural Ante-Chamber program, and will be performed in the upstairs bar area of the Factory Theatre.

Love is a Poverty You Can Sell pays tribute to the timeless music and musical influence of German composer Kurt Weill with a production that marries the bold and naked theatrical style he and writer/director Bertolt Brecht pioneered with the bravado of traditional musical theatre - all with the ambiance of a 1920's Berlin cabaret.

Love is a Poverty You Can Sell includes musical selections from some of Weill’s best known works, like The Threepenny Opera, as well as numbers from shows shaped by Weill’s artistic legacy, such as Sweeney Todd, Cabaret, and Chicago. Emcees ‘Hans’ and ‘Jodel’ add a dash of levity to the proceedings with their corkscrew brand of banter. Elegant, decadent, and irreverent, Love is a Poverty You Can Sell promises an evening to remember.

Dates and Start Times: January 5th - 6:30pm, January 7th - 4pm & 6:30pm, January 8th - 8:45pm, January 10th - 7:15pm, January 14th - 8:15pm, January 15th - 4:15pm & 6:15pm

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
