Macabaret Returns for Four Performances at Street Theatre Company
Macabaret returns for four performances of gallows humor, song and dance just in time for Halloween!
Presented by Street Theatre Company Thursdays, October 4-25
NASHVILLE – Done with the hayrides and haunted houses? If you are tired of the same old Halloween fare, come to Macabaret for an irreverent, racy evening of gallows humor, song, and dance!
This cabaret-style show will make you laugh ‘til it hurts with its outrageous look at the morbid and the macabre. Being performed for the fourth consecutive year at Street Theatre Company, this cult hit joins New York, Minneapolis, Chicago, Los Angeles, Madrid, in producing the show. Join your host, Phil Graves, and his cadaverous cohorts as they perform songs such as “Marriage is Murder,” “Grave Mistake,” and “Dead End Job” that deal with love gone bad, obsessions, and strange things that go bump in the night.
If you're in the mood for a “slightly warped, slightly psychotic and extremely macabre evening of cabaret-style entertainment,” come enjoy a night of ghoulish fun with “deliciously dark songs guaranteed to tickle your funny bone.” The final Thursday performance is a special Halloween show where the audience is encouraged to come dressed in costume, with prizes for Best and Most Original costumes! So leave the kids at home carving pumpkins and come to Macabaret for some “fiendishly good entertainment” for the grown-ups. Macabaret features some of Nashville’s most talented performers: Janette Bruce, Erica Lee Haines, Stephen Henry, Janna Landry, and Tyson Laemmel. Choreographed by Pam Atha with musical direction by Rollie Mains.
Macabaret is presented in part due thanks to Graffiti Advertising, Metro Nashville Arts Commission and Tennessee Arts Commission. The show runs Thursday nights at 8:00pm October 4-25. Tickets are $18 for adults and $16 for students and seniors. To purchase tickets, visit www.streettheatrecompany.org.
