Charles Busch Cabaret: Hit the Lights

October 27–28, 2014

On the occasion of our production of his play come film Psycho Beach Party, Charles Busch will present his cabaret, full of classic lounge songs and plenty of saucy dish.

Join Busch and Broadway pianist, Tom Judson, for a performance that has, over the years, received consistent raves from the the New York Times and other prominent critics: "What distinguishes Mr. Busch’s impersonation from similar caricatures is the same quality that infuses his plays and character comedy: its kindness. Instead of sneering, it winks... When he forsakes his female alter egos to sing without affectation, he is an expressive interpreter with a pronounced vocal resemblance to Gene Kelly."

It'll be smashing, darling! It's the event of the fall. An insight into the nuanced art of drag and, lets face it, a really good time.
