After a recent performance at Joe's Pub in New York City, last year's queer holiday hit We Three Lizas is back with a revamped book and expanded score. Box maker Conrad Ticklebottom's life has hit a stumbling block. At one time, his purple box sparked an entire movement in art and design, but now he's been forgotten and teetering on ruin. Just in the nick of time, the holidays bring three magical figures to his door -- a trio of Liza Minnellis -- to escort him on a fabulous journey through what-was, what-could-be and what-the-heck, redeeming his lost promise and reinventing a brand new Conrad Ticklebottom.

A kooky and spooky journey into the macabre, Macabaret is a collection of humorous songs, which twist towards the morbid. Murderous spouses, horror films, evil cows, supermodels and global warming are just a few of the things parodied by a "Corpse de Cabaret" of the undead. Porchlight Music Theatre presented the world premiere of this original revue in 1995 and presents a revised edition for 2009. This marks the 15th Anniversary of both the musical Macabaret and Porchlight Music Theatre Chicago.
“Porchlight is proud to present the return of Macabaret, resurrecting a show popular with our audiences and perfect for the Halloween season,” comments Artistic Director L. Walter Stearns. “Critics and audiences praised Porchlight’s 2005 version. We present this devilishly delightful musical revue as part of our 15th anniversary celebration and as testament to the fun and well-crafted work that we have presented over the course of those fifteen seasons.”
