Jackie Burns and Josh Page to Be Guests of Honor at MADAME'S SOIREE
Cabaret patroness Madame Mathieu has selected Broadway's Jackie Burns (If/Then, Wicked), and tenor Josh Page (America's Got Talent, Forte) as the guests of honor at the March edition of the Bistro Awards Critics' Pick Madame Mathieu's Soiree.
The Soiree will be held at The Duplex Cabaret Theater on March 9 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. The eclectic evening will feature a group of rising stars in stand-up, poetry, dance, songwriting, and performance art while Burns and Page will 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, the evening will also feature composer Lisa DeSpain, poet Haleh Liza, comedian Alise Morales, dancer Jeff Gorti, a performance from the political revue "Unpresidented," a short play directed by Spicer, and the premiere of a new song by Fornarola performed by Burns.
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.purplepass.com/index.php#155387/ or www.theduplex.com
