Gala Hispanic Theatre's new production, Cabaret Barroco, glosses over its antiquated dialogue with ribald physical humor. Lest you think of speakeasies or Moulin Rouge, the cabaret here refers to a series of entremesas, or skits, from 17th century Spain, back when people didn't know how to speak Spanish properly. As with Shakespearean English, the rapid-fire couplets that make up much of the back-and-forth can be poetic but are often confusing. For non-Spanish speakers, there are English surtitles that dilute much of the poetry but get the point across, insofar as these skits have a point, which they sometimes do. [MP]
