More Me – – on YouTube — on Super Tuesday

February 5, 2008

A couple of clips from the Fall 2007 production of Primary Urges are now available on YouTube thanks to our indefatigable auteur Nicholas Zill. 

Here’s one perfect for Super Tuesday — your favorite cabaret blogger as rabid Obama supporter crashing HRC’s party. The video also features Rachael Goldman as Hillary, Marilyn Bennett, Dough Smith, Michael Bruno and Mary Jane Bruno.


The place to be February 2nd…

January 23, 2008

roof_top_photo_1.jpgroof_top_photo_1.jpgroof_top_photo_1.jpgOn February 2, a host of outstanding cabaret performers, all DC Cabaret Network members — Terri Allen, Davey Brown, Chris Cochran, Deborah Davidson, Emily Everson, Michael Miyazaki, Joe Peck, Kathy Reilly, Ron Squeri and Eileen Warner — are teaming up to bring you good music and good fun while benefiting scholarships for disadvantaged DC-area youth through a College Access Fund.

I’m looking forward to this, not just because I’m in it, but from the rehearsal I heard, some of my favorite area performers are going to be delivering knock-out performances — this is a show not to be missed!!!!

From heart-felt to stand-and-belt, this show pulls no punches when it comes to providing the kind of excellent entertainment DC audiences have come to expect.

Curtain is 7:30 pm at the River Road Unitarian Universalist Congregation located at 6301 River Road, Bethesda, MD.

Ticket prices range from $10 for students to $60 for “family” admittance, and includes a cold supper with a cash bar.  A special admission price of $ 20 for DC Cabaret Network members can be had by contacting Kathy Reilly at kathereilly@hotmail.com; or for general admission tickets and directions go online to http://www.rruuc.org
