Earl Okin




Songwriter, Jazz and Bossa Nova singer and headline comedy cabaret concert artiste, there is nobody remotely like Earl Okin. He has performed everywhere from the Royal Albert and Royal Festival Halls to The Palladium and Wembley Arena in London, to The Apollo Theatre and Birdland in New York. Earl has worked with everyone from Benny Carter to Paul McCartney and counts among his friends Billy Connolly and Sacha Baron Cohen. Here in Spain, he offers two shows, demonstrating both sides of his talent...

Earl's comedy ‘Musical Genius and Sex Symbol’ is witty and sophisticated and he has performed more comedy shows at the Edinburgh Festival than anyone else has ever done. He was described by one critic as a cross between Victor Borge and Harry Connick Jr. Truth to tell, Earl's humour is quite unique...there's nobody like him at all...

So come along and find out why he IS an international sex-symbol and musical genius, with lots of surprises along the way

Whereas Earl’s initial theatrical genius is based on exactly that; Theatre, this production however exudes his others talents; humour, jazz and his performance as a musical and song-writing performer.

In a nutshell, ‘Duke, George, Cole, Hoagy, Tom and friends…’ will blow the minds of many, as they listen to Earl’s renditions of the finest and most loved performers of our time. It is quite plainly an unmissable and eye-opening show.

Earl will explain how some of the best songwriters worked and give at least one example of how NOT to write songs! He is a great musician and showman. It had been a long time, since I witnessed an artist win a crowd's favours in two minutes. This happened at the North Sea Jazz Festival in The Hague. His music? You have to find this out for yourself. He sings with a beautiful voice, perfect for the Brazilian/Jobim type of Bossa Nova songs he does. He plays guitar and piano.

A real treat is his 'voice trumpet': he can make those fantastic sounds that helped make the Mills Brothers famous. Earl's inspiration here is clearly the early Ellington horns. He can do an astonishing Whetsol. But he also did a brief Cootie, Brown and Bigard.

Xaviera Presents: Sholom-Aleichem - Now You're Talking by Saul Reichlin

TICKETS ARE SELLING RAPIDLY... make sure to make your reservation in time!!

The dinner show for Friday Jan 15th is totally sold out, but we are doing another EXTRA dinner show for Sunday January 17th for the price of euro 50 per person. This includes a divine Indonesian meal, the show and two drinks.

Book quickly as there is limited seating left.


A unique one- man dramatisation of the poignant, hilarious, classic stories from the creator of the beloved Fiddler on the Roof. For the festive season, life affirming and timeless, this superb presentation is abundant in the wisdom and humour of the shtetl.

In his celebrated telling of these funny, touching, forever optimistic tales of yesterday, Saul entices us back to what one critic referred to as a ‘lost world of poverty, foolishness, misfortune, and the love of life’. Award winning British actor Saul Reichlin’s first show, Now You’re Talking! totally sold out its London UK Premiere, and has since toured 35 cities in 7 countries, including Off Broadway.
We are sure no-one will want to miss this most special entertainment, one which resonates so strongly within the Jewish community. Saul tells us that one Rabbi actually brought 25 of his congregation to a performance of his first show, said he had not laughed so much in 25 years, and insisted on being photographed with Saul on stage afterwards!

Poignant Humorous Touching

Chris Jones Chicago Tribune june 2004

"Electrifying ... a fabulous talent... world class show... take your entire family..."

David Natale

The Westerbork Serenade


American actor and playwright, David Natale brings home a seldom-remembered story of the Holocaust in Holland with his award winning oneman show: The Westerbork Serenade. Because of anxiety over increased immigration, in 1939 the Dutch government set up a camp near the town of Westerbork to hold the stream of Jewish refugees fleeing Nazi Germany. After 1940, the Nazis turned Lager Westerbork into a transitcamp which funneled more than100,000 Jews to their doom in the eastern camps.

Westerbork Serenade - opening 7 minutes from Izzy Abrahami and Erga Netz on Vimeo.

 Westerbork was not a death camp. It was crowded and food scarce, but one could survive there. Westerbork even had a hospital, schools and a shop offering goods previously looted from the Jews. The German speaking Jewish inmates ran the administration of the camp. The SS commandant's pet project was a weekly cabaret show at Westerbork. It featured top Jewish entertainers from Germany and Holland. If one was in the show, one was "exempt" from transport- temporarily. By the end of the war, however, most of the performers from Westerbork were also sent to their deaths in eastern camps, joining the eventual six million who died.


Mr. Natale seamlessly portrays more than 15 characters; including German director, Max Ehrlich, actress Camilla Spira, Commandant Gemmeker and the beloved Dutch singing duo, Johnny and Jones. Natale developed The Westerbork Serenade after much research as well as interviews with survivors. In English, he dynamically incorporates period sketches, songs and accounts to make the audience acutely feel what it is to perform for one's life.


Natale conveys with economy and depth a gripping, true life story and the people caught up in it...he is actor enough to carry it alone.
Misha Berson, Seattle Times

Natale is an extremely versatile performer... With its jaunty song and dance numbers, gleaned from the Westerbork repertoire, Natale's show is particularly unnerving.
Joe Adcock, Seattle Post - Intelligencer

The Westerbork Serenade is not only... a Holocaust story about Jews and Nazis, but a cautionary tale on the destructiveness of prejudice and racism.
Peter A. Klein, JT News, Seattle

Press reviews Netherlands:

Preview in Dutch newspaper Trouw ,  Parool and an extensive preview in Time Out Amsterdam  and De Happy Hooker is nu Happy Hostess Parool, 16 november 2010
