LezCab Moves to StoneWall Inn; 2014 Series Kicks Off 2/16
LezCab (www.lezcab.com), the only cabaret series by, for, and about queer women is back- and it's going to be better than ever! This year, LezCab will be moving to the upstairs cabaret bar at the historic Stonewall Inn, the birthplace of the modern Gay Rights movement (read more: http://www.thestonewallinnnyc.com/StonewallInnNYC/HISTORY.html).
The first cabaret of the year will be Sunday, February 16, 2014, 6:30PM at the Stonewall Inn (53 Christopher St., New York, NY, 10014). Doors open at 6:00PM. This month's event will feature songs from beloved musicals including Next to Normal, Once, The Sound of Music, 42nd Street, and more!
LezCab favorites performing this month include Holly Marie Dunn, Marie Eife, Emily Grosland (Emotional Creature), Jami Leigh Howard, Kristen Rose Kelly, Erin Maya, Julia Osen Averill, Corynne Peters, Caitlin Lee Reid (Lesbian Love Octagon), and more.
LezCab seeks to produce and host musical theatre events that celebrate queer women in the musical theatre community, raising awareness of the general lack of representation, and giving a voice to this underserved community. Last year, LezCab was fortunate enough to have performances by Alexandra Socha from Lisa Kron and Jeanine Tesori's Fun Home at The Public Theater and the cast of the Off-off-Broadway hit, Lesbian Love Octagon by Kim Kressal and Will Larche. Aside from these recent gems, queer women rarely see their stories in musical theatre. This community is hungry to be on stage, and LezCab gives them their chance to shine, while also giving women a chance to meet other women with similar interests. And LezCab is not just for the ladies! People of all genders and sexualities are welcome to join the fun.
LezCab is currently produced by Rachel Kunstadt and Teresa Lotz, hosted by Arielle Harding, directed by Rachel Kunstadt and music-directed by Julianne B. Merrill.
The event is for audience members age 21 and above. Tickets are $10 in advance through Eventbrite (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/lezcab-at-the-stonewall-inn-tickets-10179351715), or $12 at the door (cash only).
