Say good-bye to the body shops, the tree trimmers, the construction yards, the mini-storage building in that funky industrial are behind Publix. The hipsters are coming, and their first outpost lies in the sparkling new Blue Bamboo Center for the Arts. It’s been hosting a few Jazz concerts, but tonight I came out for a Cabaret by the always sparkling Central Florida Vocal Arts people. The theme is “Topsy Turvy,” this practically means men sing female roles, and vice versa. We opened with an unexpected version of Radiohead’s “Creep” by Theresa Leigh Smith; it took a few minutes to catch on as grungy pop is so far away from the opera and show tunes we associate with this group. The evening then spun through a number of solos and duets; Nisha Carson shined with “The Girl in 14 G” and Spam-a-lot’s “What Ever Happened to My Part?” Andrew LeJeune tackled some famous girl songs including “Vodka,” “Defying Gravity” and Mary Martin’s “Never Never Land.” There were numbers from “Glee” and opera, and the finale was the most interesting piece of all. The group got together and sang every possible Italian musical direction in that particular style from “A Capella” to “Volti Suitor”. The show was fun, the sound excellent, and the seats not too bad. Some thought went into sound damping; this new industrial music space sounds pretty good.
