LIFE IS A CABARET
Five years ago, the glittery, politically tinged theatrical cabaret Weimar New York sashayed onto the stage at Joe’s Pub as the quickest cure for those suffering from post-9/11 anxiety in the Bush era. Now with the 2012 election raising our blood pressure, the show returns to tackle current events and economic issues with new song-and-dance numbers sure to tickle your intellect as much as your funny bone. Presented by downtown impresario Earl Dax and hosted by Dusty Limits, winner of “Best Host/Compere” at the London Cabaret Awards and blessed with an impressive three-octave range, this show includes performance artist Joseph Keckler, the glamorous Machine Dazzle, burlesque stars Tigger! and Amber Ray, neo-cabaret artist Kim Smith, multi-instrumentalist Phoebe Legere, vaudevillian banjo player Curtis Eller, and the Pixie Harlots dance troupe. And, just added, the crowd-surfing chanteuse Meow Meow.
