Full Lineup Announced For March 21 Madame's Soiree
Cabaret patroness Madame Mathieu has selected Heather Makalani (Aladdin) and CJ Eldred (The Book of Mormon) as guests of honor at the March edition of Bistro Awards Critics' Pick Madame's Soiree. The Broadway duo will be joined on the program by a distinguished group of emerging artists from a variety of disciplines. Artistic directors Drew Fornarola (STRAIGHT, VeggieTales) and Tyler Spicer (Pharmabro) are also pleased to announce that the soirees will now be free with a reservation, as the company moves to a donation-based model for its programming.
The Soiree will be held at The Duplex Cabaret Theater on March 21 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.
This Soiree will also feature storyteller Amy Jo Jackson (winner of the Soiree's Denovan Residency for Cabaret), dancer Greer Gisy, Magician Patrick Swailes Caldwell, essayist David Murray, writers Gundrum & Lambert, comedian Jessica Saul, and actress Samantha Blinn. Spicer will host. This is the 20th edition of the show, which has already featured over 200 individual artists and 39 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 please call 212-989-3015, or visit https://www.theduplex.com/site/calendar
