OCT 10-19, THU-SAT at 8PM, SUN at 7PM
Join Kegan Marling and Mica Sigourney for a cabaret adventure as they slip into an intimate and indulgent world of two gay boys drunk on whiskey, surrounded by sparkles, and pleading for Freddie Mercury to carry them off as they huddle together against the rolling sunrise.
“I saw the narcissism and arrested emotional development all around me, and in me. Guys flitting around like Peter Pan were sometimes cute and funny, and certainly nonthreatening, but I wanted to be a grown up. I wanted to be a man. I wanted to be strong, solid, stable and reliable.” – David Kyle Foster
