BeBe contracts ‘Cabaret Fever’

Asheville – Dancers, drummers, singers and female impersonator Yeraldine will descend April 23-26 on the BeBe Theater, 20 Commerce St., for “Cabaret Fever,” a show to honor La Lupe, the Cuban song mistress who wowed audiences in Havana, Miami and New York in the 1950s.

Director and dancer Nelson Reyes, a Cuban native, and Giles and Susan Collard of ACDT/White Dog Dance Project International began with the idea of putting a Cuban Cabaret on stage with La Lupé performed by Yeraldine. They then infused the show with the flavor of local performers and music from Latin America, Africa and the United States.
