Aaron Robuck's self devised cabaret 'The Hardest Part of Love', a semi-autobiographical story of family, Judaism, experimentation and letting go is a dynamic, emotional and often hilarious take on a journey through to adulthood. Chronologically, the story begins with Aaron in a sheltered, privileged, Jewish home, led by his father (a Rabbi). After meeting a non-Jewish girl, and the hardships that come along with that, he begins to move away from Judaism and the idea of home. He then takes a step into a darker, more experimental world in which he finds solace. After several ridiculous temptations back to the lifestyle he kept at home, he confronts his father and they begin the 'letting go' process. The piece ends somewhat unresolved, in which they accept each other's differences and lifestyles. With songs from Songs for a New World, The Last Five Years, Stop The World! I Want To Get Off, Spring Awakening, Jekyll and Hyde, Children of Eden, Yentl, Aladdin as well as some pop, jazz and liturgical pieces, the show promises to be a not-to-miss dramatic and musical experience.
Aaron first conceived and performed his cabaret at the end of 2012, where he presented it as his graduating Music Theatre Recital at the Australian Institute of Music, now proudly holding a Bachelor of Music (Music Theatre). Aaron’s cabaret is unlike many other cabarets. Aaron embraces the exoticism that comes along with his subject matter, and has choreographed the piece with this avant garde style in mind. It is not a ‘natural’ production, which gives it a distinctive feel, and therefore different to other ‘cabarets’.
