Luther Chakurian and Rebekah Dahl, two of Masquerade Theatre’s longtime resident company members, have created a cabaret act. And its title reflects everything we know about the two of them, complete with a serious bit of tongue-in-cheek: Luther Chakurian and Rebekah Dahl – In Love (With Themselves).
The two magnificent singing actors will perform at The Houston Club on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 29 and 30. The program is built around their 10-plus years at the theater together and the direction that their lives have taken over that period. It is not a common occurence in Houston for two people to have spent most of their careers working together in one company.
“I was looking for a way to feature Masquerade’s company members in more intimate ways,” says founding artistic director Phillip Duggins, “and felt that a cabaret series would be the most effective way to accomplish this. Who better to introduce this series to our audience but Luther and Rebekah? They are both well-known, established Masquerade performers who have not only worked at length with the theatre, but also with each other. They were the obvious choice.”
Rebekah Dahl will be discussing the program with John DeMers on Houston ArtsWeek this Sunday 4-5 p.m. on NewsRadio 740 KTRH. There are only 100 seats available for each night of the cabaret. Tickets can be purchased by calling Masquerade at 713-861-7045, or online at www.masqueradetheatre.com
