Bittersuites:Songs of Experiance
What doesnt kill you makes you stronger could be the
alternative title to the new show that is being presented by local theater company Penguin Productions. Actually entitled Bittersuite: Songs of Experience, the musical revue celebrates human resilience.
The music is wonderful, said director Jill Nadeau. And even though some of the songs are a little dark, there is a good balance between happy, sad and funny. Just like life. I think the thing to take away, is that the dark doesnt last forever, theres something better around the bend! Nadeau, who designed the sets and costumes, says she went with a Steampunk theme. It just seemed to fit the songs, dark and gritty but with optimism in creating a better tomorrow, she said.
Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction that incorporates technology and designs that are inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery and fashion Bittersuite is a musical revue, which means its all singing and dancing. The music for the show was written by Ellior Weiss, with lyrics by Michael Champagne.
