We only went to one performance, but it was just great. Ben Freeman, Chantel Whittle, Michael Wharton and Nara Shin are great singers and musicians. They all gave wonderful performances. The venue (the Red Room) was a perfect, intimate place,...continued

Description

September 27 and October 5, 2013: Magician Randy Masters

Magic and mind reading for all ages! Randy Masters combines magic, comedy, mind-reading, and audience-participation into a fun and memorable performance. 

September 29 and October 5, 2013: Big D and the Closers (Improvised Musical)

Big D and the Closers takes your suggestion and turns it into a fully improvised musical right before your very eyes! This dynamic ensemble has taken both their love of New York musical theater and Chicago style long-form improvisation and married them into an hour long spectacle that is not to be missed. After a brief opening the performers launch into a variety of improvised scenes and songs all inspired by the exploration of the audience given suggestion. The result is both an Off-Broadway musical and an underground comedy show that has never been seen before, will never be seen again and of course… anything goes! 

October 2, 2013: Bending Threads and POP! the Anti-Jukebox Musical

Bending Threads is an innovative collective consisting of four artists in pursuit of a new vision for cabaret. Through live musical performance themed with African-American literature we create an atmosphere to entertain, educate and inspire audiences. 

POP! the Anti-Jukebox Musical What happens when a woman attempts to find out who her father is, because her twenties have lead to one too many a hard days night and she’s starting to think he’s an American idiot? She realizes that love isn’t a battlefield, it’s a Journey; and you must never “stop believin’” in your dreams. Witness a young(ish) girl navigate love and daddy issues, along with her showbiz ambitions in this musical about love, loss and what was on MTV! 

*October 2, 2013: Inflammatory Writ: Celebrating Female Songwriters with Benjamin Freeman 

*This cabaret takes the position that whom you choose to sing is a political choice: it makes an argument about your values and priorities, it includes or excludes. It is significant. In “Inflammatory Writ,” I have invited some of my favorite musicians, both women and men, to help me celebrate female songwriters. We sing with pride and vitality, featuring artists as diverse as Joanna Newsom, Tegan and Sara, and Jazmine Sullivan. Our aim is to empower, to elevate, to be effusive when it comes to the value of women in our society and in our cultural voice. 

October 3, 2013: Girl Singer - The Songs of Rosemary Clooney

Rita Mathsen and Christopher Cooley celebrate the amazing career of Rosemary Clooney with her most famous songs including “Mambo Italiano”, “Come On-a My House”, “Hey There” and interesting facts about her fascinating life and career.
