Complete Lineup Announced for MADAME MATHIEU'S SOIREE at The Duplex
Cabaret patroness Madame Mathieu has selected Spongebob himself, Ethan Slater (The Spongebob Musical), and actress Katie LaMark (RENT, Mr. Robot) as guests of honor at the September edition of the Bistro Awards Critics' Pick Madame Mathieu's Soiree.
The Soiree will be held at The Duplex Cabaret Theater on September 14 at 9:30pm.
Described by critic Gerry Geddes as "an Ed Sullivan Show for a new generation", this "variety show with an avant garde twist" is as unpredictable as the patroness herself. Each eclectic evening features a group of rising stars in stand-up, poetry, dance, songwriting, and performance art while the Broadway guests accept creative dares that arise from Mme. M's insane imagination. The evening concludes with a party in the outer bar, because the only thing more interesting that Madame's show is her audience.
Hosted by five-time MAC Award nominee Drew Fornarola (off-Broadway's STRAIGHT) and directed by Tyler Spicer, this edition of the soiree will also feature poet Kirkwood Adams, dancer Ali Dietz, writer Eric Tipler, comedian John Griswold, actors Rachel Towne and Priyanka Krishnan, drag personality Chelsea Piers and singer Joseph Townsend. This is the 11th edition of the show, which has already featured over 150 individual artists and 25 Broadway guests.
The Duplex Cabaret Theatre is located at 61 Christopher Street. Tickets are $10 online and $15 at the door. There is a two-drink minimum. For tickets, call 212-989-3015, or visit www.purplepass.com/#155390 or www.theduplex.com.
