Amore or Less

Life really is a cabaret, old chum – at least, according to Scottsdale Community College adjunct faculty members Polly Chapman and Beth Livingston-Hakes. Four years ago, they brought musical theater to the campus via a cabaret show that’s now a yearly tradition.

This spring’s performance, For Better or For Worse: Love Changes Everything, takes a comical look (is there any other kind?) at relationships, from a fantasy first date told through a musical number called “Stud and Babe” to what happens when that lovin’ feeling doesn’t last. And, as if relationships weren’t tragically funny enough, the college’s president and the music department chair will make cameo appearances.
