Pianist Lara Downes and vocalist Theo Bleckmann present a duo cabaret showcasing the music of Leonard Bernstein, Duke Ellington, and Kurt Weill.

A window into the lives and music of these composers as they captured the quickly-changing world of the 1940s, In Our Time is nostalgic yet timeless, sexy and eclectic with a dash of noire, infused with the magnetic force that allows Bleckmann and Downes to pull their audience off the beaten path and into the world of their imagination.

Inspired by Downes' recent tribute album For Lenny, the evening will feature works by Bernstein and his fellow travelers through mid-century America: Marc Blitzstein, Charlie Chaplin, Duke Ellington, Morton Gould, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, and Kurt Weill.
