Stage Review

A true original in tune with summer

Four singer-actors, three musicians, and more than a dozen composers and lyricists add up to an enchanting evening of cabaret called “Never Far From Home: Love Songs About Leaving.”

Presented by Central Square Theatre, the Cabaret Series is a continuation of a collaboration that began two years ago as an opportunity for audiences to hear the work of local composers, performed in a relaxed, cabaret setting. The current “Never Far From Home” collects 17 original songs and one parody, all of which explore the notion of following your dream, even when it means frustration, separation, miscommunication, and homesickness.
