Film buff and Long Beach native Iris Rose returns to The Found Theatre after 39 years with her cabaret performance, “The Siren Song of the Silver Screen,” which combines her love of cinema with her ear for great songs. Genres represented range from cult films to kids’ classics, from Bond flicks to horror movies. Iris will be joined by special guests Jeff Paul on additional vocals and Jeanne Gallo performing a tribute to silent films.
In its 45th Anniversary year, the Found is pleased to welcome back one of its earliest company members. Iris first performed at the Found Theatre in 1975, just one year after it was founded by Cynthia Galles, and later directed the productions “Dreamers” and “Raid on Entebbe.” At the Found, she also performed in The Frankenstein Collective’s “Sing Softly, Monster, My Sad Song” and in Marlane Gomard Meyer’s “Death of Pavlova.” Iris was a member of Long Beach’s legendary punk rock band The Stingers (1978-’81), and the leftist political children’s theater group Stone Soup.
