LA SOIRÉE is the jaw-dropping, gasp-inducing theatrical phenomenon that recently opened to rave reviews. The international talent lineup features the crème de la crème of singular entertainers; it is high glamour and low inhibition entertainment for those who enjoy the risky and the risqué. LA SOIRÉE has seduced audiences around the world with its astonishing, sexy, funny and downright dangerous take on cabaret and variety.
Stephen "Bath Boy" WILLIAMS - Who knew bath time could be so damn sexy? This sultry combination of wet jeans and awe-inspiring aerial gymnastics is once-seen, never-forgotten. Bath time will never be the same again!
BRET PFISTER - Supple, sexy, skilful and stunningly handsome, Bret Pfister brings the finest of New York's cabaret talent to La Soirée. Equally inspired by the neo-Weimar cabaret movement and the nu-wave, synth-pop sounds of the 1980s, he blends awesome physical skill and a cool insouciance into his exquisite, punked-up aerial ballet.
CABARET DECADANSE - Montreal's Cabaret Decadanse features a cast of amazing characters who deliver breath-taking performances to a haunting soundtrack. It's a rollicking, sassy, sexy and hilarious puppet feast for adults, in which the puppeteers are as mesmerizing as the puppets themselves. Extraordinarily expressive, these creations are made from stuffed rags and scraps of material and are brought to vivid life through the brilliant choreography of Serge Deslauriers and André-Anne Le Blanc.
THE ENGLISH GENTS - Mixing highly skilled stunts and inconceivable feats of acrobatic strength and balance with a dry English wit, these two delightful and devilish "English" gentlemen - Denis Lock and Hamish McCann - display more pure skill and sex appeal than ever before seen under a bowler hat. As for Hamish McCann's one-of-a-kind pole routine, let's just say it's sure to leave you 'feeling good'...
MARAWA - Conquering the world with hoops! Sassy, hot to trot and as skilled as they come, Marawa is both sleek cabaret artist and cheeky clown. A virtuoso of the Hula Hoop and a demon on skates, she has dazzled on stages across the world, her unique brand of coquettish comedy charming and amazing audiences in equal measure. Part Josephine Baker and part Betty Boop, La Soirée is delighted to welcome back this exquisite package of carnival energy.
Marcus Monroe - Comedian and juggler extraordinaire Marcus has brought his unique brand of humor, wit and specialty juggling to audiences from China to the Caribbean, now he joins La Soirée for the first time in New York - be prepared to be spell-bound by his electric on-stage presence!
MOOKY - A clown extraordinaire, Mooky's irrepressible and captivating mix of tomfoolery and quirky comedy has engrossed and enchanted worldwide. Among her many talents, Mooky is a pianist, puppeteer, accordion squeezer and chicken trainer. Is there anything she can't do? Not likely!
SCOTTY THE BLUE BUNNY - The spandex-clad spectacle Scotty sings, fiddles, twirls, performs magic and busts really big balloons with his butt. There's nothing he can't do in a bunny suit, a philosophy that's meant he's got much farther in life being blue.
Please note that the cast is subject to change.
