Lypsinka, Sheik, Etc. Camp at the 'Spiegeltent,' 8/3-10/1

A mosaic of live entertainment will come to New York with the "Spiegeltent," from August 3rd through October 1st.

"Whether in Melbourne or Sydney, Dublin or Edinburgh, when people want to revel with friends, enjoy some drinks, listen to music and see live entertainment, they bypass the pubs and clubs and flock towards the 'Spiegeltent– a transportable, globe-trotting one-stop-shop for an eclectic mix of local and international talent," state press notes. "An opulent and wondrous venue of canvas, cut glass, teak, mirrors, billowing velvet and brocade, the 'Spiegeltent', brought to New York by Ross Mollison and Vallejo Gantner, will be located at the site of the former Fulton Fish Market at the South Street Seaport, allowing for picturesque views of the East River, Fulton Landing, Governor's Island and the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges." 

Since Marlene Dietrich first sang "Falling in Love Again" on the 'Spiegeltent' stage in the 1930s, the site has traveled the globe and housed some of the world's greatest performing artists.  Adjacent to the 'Spiegeltent' is the beer garden, which is one of the most exciting parts of the entire venue and integral to this unparalleled entertainment experience.  The beer garden will offer an impressive selection of handcrafted beers from New York City's premiere brewpub, Heartland Brewery."  There were also be other drinks and refreshments.

Featuring cabaret, music and performance, the 'Spiegeltent' will run multiple shows every day for 60 days.  Among the highlights of the event will be the hallucinatory theatre experience Absinthe (internationally known as La Clique), a performance by Spring Awakening composer Duncan Sheik, concerts by alternative artist Diamanda Galas, presentations of John Epperson's Lypsinka: The Passion of the Crawford, in which he plays Joan Crawford, the "neo-vaudevillian" performance piece From the Hip: A Ukelele Operetta, and more.
