What good is sitting all quiet in your room? / Come hear the podcast play. / Life is a Cabaret, old chum, / Download our episode 10!
This week we're joined by Chicago artist, performer, projectionist, film archivist and movie lover, Lyra Hill.
From her earliest memories of watching a broken Costco DVD of Cabaret, Lyra has been fascinated with the Bob Fosse--directed and choreographed musical. Eleanor and Kseniya had never seen it until now, but through a discussion of the grungy aesthetic, the love triangles and the sinister historical context that hangs over this twisted romance, they come to appreciate it as well.
