theo adams performance in tokyo
'Cry Out' is the new theatrical production from the Theo Adams Company. This epic performance tears apart power ballads, classical scores, queer cabaret and expressionist dance to create a truly 21st Century spectacle.
As emotional fevers reach boiling point, R&B Divas reach out to save your soul from oblivion. The feral orchestra shimmer below, underscoring each movement with songs that veer from Optimistic euphoria to the depths of passionate despair.
“In the spotlight, your tears glow like glitter.
Be a superstar in the chorus.
Step forward, and Cry Out.
