Many people don't know what life was like during communism. Could you just enter the a communist country? What if you fell in love with someone? Image how difficult it had to be when Rock Music was already considered to be criminal!

Mark & Helena Greathouse tell their love story in Communist Czechoslovakia in a musical Cabaret. 
A fun narration about the past, when the West met the Iron Curtain.

Mark and Helena Greathouse, an international husband and wife musical duo, present their one hour performance, “You Do Speak English, Don’t You?”, a family friendly, lively cabaret style variety show. The core part of the show was first introduced at the 2014 Portland, OR, Fertile Ground Festival of New Works. 

Since that time they have taken the show on the road into various places in Oregon, which include Beaverton Historical Society, Lincoln City Cultural Center, The Old Church in Portland, Sherwood Community/Senior Center, Twilight Theater in Portland, Hillsboro Artists’ Regional Theatre, Tigard Public Library, Woodburn Senior Estates Club, Celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the incorporation of Scio – a town where Czech emigrants arrived in 1898, Woodburn UMC monthly concert series, Cedar Mill Community Library, Beaverton Civic Theatre, etc.  In July 2017 they presented the show in three venues in Texas – the Lyric Theater in Flatonia, the Czech Heritage Museum in Caldwell and the Czech Heritage Museum in Temple.

The show features Mark’s own songs, as well several familiar songs and parts of instrumental numbers, all interspersed with short, humorous dialogues highlighting challenges Helena and Mark have experienced in their lives as a Czech-American couple.

Mark’s compositions range from love songs to ragtime.  Helena presents a unique blend of expressive dance and song, enhanced by numerous costume changes.  Mark accompanies her on the accordion.

Mark is a musician/composer from Portland, OR, and Helena is a singer/actor/dancer originally from Prague, Czech Republic.  The show gives the story of how the two met in Europe and eventually married, moved to the U.S. and made their living here.  A Q and A session follows the performance, with Helena sharing what her life was like growing behind the Iron Curtain and making it to the West.  

Mark and Helena have performed for many years in the Northwest as well as in several European countries. Each began performing in their youth, Mark with his dad on stage in Portland, and Helena on Czechoslovak National Radio and TV in Prague.  Their stage name is ‘GREATHOUSE of Music’ and they have a line of CDs.
