Guilty Pleasures Cabaret to Bring SCHOOL'S OUT to The Duplex
The Duplex, NYC's historic cabaret theater, presents Guilty Pleasures Cabaret in "School's Out" on Friday June 2nd, 2017 at 9:30pm.
With a speak-easy feel, a nod to pop tunes, and a sprinkle of the swinging sixties, the performers of the Guilty Pleasures Cabaret give their audience members sex appeal, spectacle and variety. These fishnet-clad dancers, tap, contort, sing, and pirouette to the sounds of 'Chicago', 'Great Gatsby', 'Cabaret', Beyoncé, and Nancy Sinatra - playfully mixing past and present. Alongside the diversely talented dancers, the show features emcees, singers, musicians, and comedians who interject wit and charm between dance routines.
The June 2nd cast features 12 of the company's members: Melissa Becker, Bridget Bose, Melissa Buriak, Melissa Cammarata, Julia Goretsky, Gregory Levine, Katarina Lott, Erika Odegard, Andrea Palesh, Ashley Rose, Megan Stricker, and Ashley Rose.

Guilty Pleasures Cabaret was founded in 2014 by six friends in New York City who wanted to produce a show that highlighted both their performing and creative talents. Inspired by music, dance, and costumes that fulfilled their guilty performing pleasures, the show was born - thus earning their name "Guilty Pleasures Cabaret." The ladies debuted their show in Manhattan on the Upper West Side at a neighborhood bar, and after nine months, moved downtown where they sold out monthly shows at the renowned Duplex Cabaret Theater. The ladies have since made The Duplex their performing home, with guest appearances at Feinstein's/54 Below, The Triad, The Ten-Foot Rat Cabaret, Clocktower Cabaret in Denver, and Voodoo Comedy Lounge in Denver. In the spring of 2017, the ladies and gents of GPC will make their international performance debut in San Pedro, Belize. For more information, visit www.guiltypleasurescabaret.com.
Although The Duplex looks like a quiet West Village corner home, there's a raucous world of great cabaret behind its French doors. Opened in the '50s in its original location across the street, The Duplex moved to its current digs in the '80s and is touted as the city's oldest cabaret theatre where the likes of Joan Rivers and Woody Allen tested out their early work. Enjoy an entire evening of Broadway-quality entertainment without the long lines or overpriced tickets. The centerpiece in the downstairs piano bar is undoubtedly the black baby grand piano, played nightly. For patrons with the courage to take center stage, the piano bar hosts impromptu open-mic sessions for singers during the week after 9pm and a comedy open-mic on Wednesdays from 7-9pm. Upstairs at The Duplex will provide you with that NYC lounge feel, and late night weekly and monthly parties now reminiscent 0f the West Village of the past. Go to www.theduplex.com for more.
