Gulfshore Playhouse and The Norris Center Present
Charlotte Cohn’s “Simply Complicated” Cabaret
Gulfshore Playhouse in partnership with The Norris Center will present Charlotte Cohn’s “Simply Complicated: The Elegant Escapades of a Danish-Israeli Opera Singing Tank Commander” Cabaret on April 27 and 28 at 7:30 p.m. The evening will include wine and snacks in a New York-style jazz club setting.
What do you get when you cross a Danish Orthodox Jew and a simple Israeli girl from a kibbutz? You get Charlotte Cohn, who at nineteen was already a Commander in the Israeli Army, but had her sights on a different path. Join her in this eclectic evening of music ranging from Puccini to The Beatles and hear the real stories that brought her from Ben Yehuda Street to Broadway.
"I’m so thrilled to have Charlotte back to The Norris Center for this brilliant and exciting show,” notes Jennifer Fox, Park Manager of The Norris Center.
