The fine old art of cabaret is a unique mélange of acting, singing, storytelling, and comedy. Its lineage spans classic nightclub Le Chat Noir and the modern La Clique, classic icon Marlene Dietrich and the modern Meow Meow. The latter mounts her diverting, lushly musical, slightly wicked show in the close confines of Sheafer Lab Theater.
A “cabaret diva of the highest order” (NY Post) who is “nothing less than revelatory” (The Australian), Meow Meow leads the vanguard of cabaret provocateurs into the 21st century, creating a character that evokes a blowsy, volatile Edith Piaf.
In Beyond Glamour, with Emmy-winning pianist Lance Horne, Meow Meow sings French chansons, Kurt Weill songs, and Astor Piazzolla tangos in a hysterical pidgin of languages, maintaining the flawless illusion of going deliciously off the rails. In this incomparable performer, a time-honored format finds its most dramatic contemporary expression.
*Price valid for 2 tickets per ID.
**Please arrive early. Late seating restrictions may be in effect.**
