PROUD AT MARY'S Cabaret Set for Mary's Attic, 6/13-14

It's Pride month 2014 and The Brown Paper Box Co. is ready to celebrate! Following their successful run of William Finn's A New Brain, The Brown Paper Box Co. has announced their next cabaret series: PROUD AT MARY'S: A June Cabaret at Mary's Attic in Andersonville. Ticketing information for this evening of Pride-based stories and songs can be found at www.brownpaperbox.org.

PROUD AT MARY'S emphasizes taking pride in our identities and sharing our personal stories during such a monumental month in Illinois - June 1st being the first day every county in the state will recognize same-sex marriages. PROUD AT MARY'S is a mix of pop songs, show tunes, personal monologues, and stories about being gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, questioning, and straight.

"We wanted to create a brand new cabaret show and Mary's Attic in Andersonville seemed like the perfect venue," says Brown Paper Box Co. executive director and show coordinator M. William Panek. "Musical Director Justin Harner and I are working with amazingly gracious past Brown Paper Box Co. participants to form a touching and fun evening of personal insight and killer musical numbers."

The set list is comprised of surprise song selections from Fiona Apple, Harold Arlen, Jeanne T. Arrigo, Pamela Mae Davis, William Finn, Marvin Hamlisch, Carole King, Andrew Lippa, Robert Lopez, Jeff Marx, Stephen Sondheim, Georgia Stitt, Stevie Wonder, David Yazbek, and a special arrangement from Andrew Edwards. Tickets for the 7:30 P.M. performances on 6/13 and 6/14 are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Additional information can be found at www.BrownPaperBox.org.

The cast includes Jeanne T. Arrigo, Johnny Kyle Cook, Pamela Mae Davis, Megan Ensley, Justin Harner*, David Lipschutz*, M. William Panek*, Stephanie Rohr*, Anna Schutz*, Nick Shoda*, and Daniel Spagnuolo*.
