Carmen Cancél and Jean Sophie Kim in Concert “So..Is This a Date?"
So...Is This a Date? was born of a desire to express our surprise and bewilderment at the rapidly changing dating landscape. Until very recently there was a loose script for courting, and we all knew the story: subtle flirting, less subtle flirting, increasingly shameless flirting, consulting friends/ hairdresser/bartenders about the risks of asking someone to go out with you, holding your breath while blatantly manipulating someone to ask you out, choosing a fetching outfit to withstand an evening of dinner, drinking, backseats of cabs, and the bleary-eyed walk of shame. You know, a fairy tale. CARMEN ELISA CANCÉL Hailed as a singer possessing a “crystalline timbre and intense acting ability,” (L'Arena, Verona, Italy) Puerto Rican soprano, Carmen Elisa Cancél, has excelled in opera, musical theater, and cabaret. Ms. Cancél was proclaimed “flawless” and “completely believable” (Creative Loafing Tampa) in her performance as the title character of Maria’s Song, a musical drama focused on the desperate need for immigration reform in the US. JEAN SOPHIE KIM is a pianist, singer and conductor in New York City. She has performed as a concerto soloist, recitalist and chamber player throughout the world.
