F OR THOSE of us who know Paul
Simon and Art Garfunkel only
from their classic records and an oc-
casional appearance on late night TV,
Friday night promises to be an Event
approaching the second coming of
Homer.
The contemporary duo is responsible
for poetry on which at least an entire
generation was raised. Even for those
who were not living in the spiritual
world of the '60s, the harmonies and
groundbreaking arrangements of
Simon and Garfunkel still provide an
opportunity today for introspection and
really heavy vibes.
The Silverdome appearance of the
modern-day bards will not attract
nearly the number of people who were
reportedly at their big Centrsl Park
concert in September of 1981. 500,000

fans and others with nothing better to
do jammed the park to listen to the first
Simon and Garfunkel concert since
1970. Even more saw the HBO tape and
bought the double LP of the concert.
Asked why they teamed up after all
these years for a just-completed tour of
Europe, Japan, and Australia, both
members said they simply enjoyed
singing together again. The 1983
"Summer Evening" tour is apparently
a continuation of the fun they say they
are having.
"Artie and I had some heart-to-heart
talks, which amazingly we never had,"
Simon says. "We found ourselves
talking about what would work when we
sang together, and enjoying the
challenge of preparing for the concert."

Life will be
a 'Cabaret'
A NN ARBOR AUDIENCES will be
treated to a rare experience this
Friday when the Performance Network
(408 West Washington), presents the
award winning musical Cabaret.
Cabaret is a poignant story that takes
place against the backdrop of the wild-
ness and confusion of Germany bet-
ween the world wars. The performance
comes alive as the theater is transfor-
med into a '30s style cabaret where the
performers and the audience inter-
mingle to become, as a whole, the
theatrical experience.
The Network staff has attended to the
tiniest details in presenting a
historically accurate production. The
theater space, already resembling a.
Bohemian night club with its intimate
brick and pipe interior, will become an
actual cabaret complete with tables
and dancing girls. The European
fascination with American Jazz and
black performers is also represented in
the show, which casts many of the
$ area's black talents.
The Network's attempt to recreate
the cabaret has an added boost from
our own economic and political times
that strike more than a passing resem-
blance to the high unemployment, in-
flation, and political apathy that
reigned in the '30s. Thus, the audience
of the '80s may find more significance
e them famous. in this play than when it was first per-
formed in the late '60s.
The production promises to be enter-
for only 150 people, no audience mem-
ber is far from the action. Cabaret will
be performed every Friday and Satur-
