Last year’s Harvard-Yale Cantata was such an enjoyable bloodbath that it’s time for a rematch! The 2015 event featured some of New York’s leading performers: (from Harvard) Rachel Flynn, Liz Leimkuhler, and Larry O’Keefe, (from Yale) Benjamin Eakeley, Cicily Daniels, and Malcolm Gets. The all-Ivy judging panel featured Amanda Green, Bob Stillman and Rachel Dratch. Who will be aboard this year? We’ll soon find out! As for songs, just remember that Harvard offers Leonard Bernstein, Tom Lehrer, Alan Jay Lerner, Larry O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin, while Yale has Cole Porter, Maury Yeston, Adam Guettel, and Bobby Lopez.
“A great time was had by all at this unusual and brilliant musical evening.” – Linda Burns, TheaterPizzazz
“One of the best—and funniest—shows I’ve seen.” – Victoria Ordin, Cabaret Scenes
And that was only our first try. The rematch will no doubt be wittier and nastier. Will someone cry? Don’t miss it.
