From Weimar to Vaudeville is the story of two men, both sons of musical royalty. As America emerges from the Great Depression and Germany descends into darkness and chaos. Two musical princes, one rich, one poor, reach to each other across hardship and time as the world tilts again toward war.

Featuring music by Richard Strauss, Charlie Chaplin, Fletcher Henderson, Paul Hindemith, and Johannes along with stunning original songs by the cast. Weimar to Vaudeville is Tom Allen’s vivid imagining of the 20s and 30s: dirty as ever and roaring loudly enough to be heard half-way around the world. Featuring Patricia O’Callaghan, Bryce Kulak, Kevin Fox, Lori Gemmell, Peter Gemmell and Tom Allen.

“I loved From Weimar to Vaudeville. I audibly gasped when I deduced what was coming.”
audience-member Andrew Davies after the first performance in Ottawa, July 2014
