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 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.
