Music at the Odyssey
presents Unnerving Berlin, a one-man cabaret show written by Taubert Nadalini and Sophie Thomason, starring Taubert Nadalini accompanied by Nathan Heldman piano, and directed by John Snow. What would happen if Irving Berlin had fallen down a rabbit hole and seen the future of musical theater? This show has the answer!
