Kaleidoscope Eyes – Songs for Busby Berkeley

Chris Jeffries, writer/composer/lyricist of acclaimed Seattle musicals Vera Wilde, The Fatty Arbuckle Spook House Revue, and I see London, I See France brings the work of Busby Berkeley to life with a 75-minute live music performance featuring sixteen film sequences from the legendary Hollywood choreographer. Berkeley almost single-handedly defined a cinematic language of the big screen musical with his dazzling innovations in the design, scale and presentation of production numbers as well as the revolutionary camera techniques employed to capture them on film. Jeffries and six vocalists will accompany the visual spectacle with live renditions of all new songs.
