Description Technical Specs
Based on the old Polish variety theater, Kabaret Starszych Panow, or "Old Gentlemen's Cabaret," this cult comedy classic is renowned for its slapstick gags and absurd humor. Two entertainers in top hats and tails wreak havoc around town as they search for a venue to showcase their "talents." The loose structure is an excuse for assembling a collection of old-style comedy sketches, songs, and jokes from the Polish cabaret scene of bygone years. Heat is a departure for Kazimierz Kutz, a renowned director of serious dramas who began his long career as part of the Polish School of the 1950s.
