An intimate performance by Everlast and “Moorland”, a new theatre play, are Vienna’s cultural highlights of early December.
Everlast – the rapper/singer who topped the charts around the world with “What It’s Like” in 1998 – will hit the stage at the Porgy & Bess, one of the city’s coolest clubs, on 4 December. Fans of the Valley Stream, New York-born former House of Pain front man are looking forward to an extraordinary night thanks to his live performance skills and the intimacy of the location. Everlast is expected to play songs from his most recent album, “Songs of the Ungrateful Living” (2011), as well as hits such as “Black Jesus” and “Blinded by the Sun”.
Already on 1 December, “Moorland” will premiere at the Theater an der Gumpendorfer Straße (TAG). Writer and director Gernot Plass has revealed that there are certain links between Friedrich Schiller’s “Die Räuber” (The Robbers) and his new play – which comes shortly after “Hamlet Sein” started its successful series of sold-out performances at the TAG. The cast of “Moorland” features Jens Claßen, Julian Loidl and “Hamlet Sein” star Gottfried Neuner.
“Moorland” will be performed a further eight times throughout December and is expected to be a significant part of the TAG’s playbill in the first few months of 2013.
