"Discotheque Nana," Metro al-Madina's latest offering, premiered at the Hamra cabaret space Monday night, delighting its audience with a whimsical blend of nostalgia, wacky sketches and sing-along songs.Presented by Nana (Yasmina Fayed), the show ignores the war and its collateral damage, maintaining a comical sheen throughout.Nana hosts four musical guests, whom she interviews and invites to sing along with her to well-known, sometimes cringe-worthy, Lebanese songs from the '80s.The show begins with the program's theme tune that accompanies Nana's grand entrance. The pair croon out duet versions of tunes like Adonis Akl's "Chiki Chiki Baba" and Hekmat Wehbi's "Ah Ya Tamara," to which the audience clapped and sang along.The choreography was silly and the delivery histrionic, but the vocals were nicely performed – the show's musical polish providing an effective mirror for the comedy.After the break, Nana introduced two other guests, the slightly creepy poet Al Akhtar al-Wasat (Khaled Soubeih) and the ditsy gold-digging vixen/singer Siham (Cosette Chedid).
