A Cabaret for Lovers
Featuring Serena Ebhardt & Alex Thompson
The Art of Love is a playful cabaret of old and new love songs, interspersed with works of art and love notes written by the audience. Perfect for Art Lovers, Art Council Fundraisers, Art Museum Programs & Valentine’s Day Events.
Classical art, spotlighting couples locked in intimacy, evokes romance. See the great works of love by Waterhouse, Chagall, Klimt, Schiele, Rodin and others. Hear the lyrics of Gershwin, Rodgers and Hart, Hupfield, and Waller; songs from the past and present proving that love is timeless. Return to the wonderful, mad, hopeful, lunacy of this intoxicating emotion of love.
Sing along with the seduction. The Art of Love song list includes: I’ve Got A Crush On You, Halo, Love Me Tender, All of Me, The Book of Love, Making Whoopee and Alex Thompson’s new hit single: Swipe Right Into My Heart.
