Well, no one can say that Austin Cabaret Theatre doesn't offer something for everyone! The two nights of From the Ridiculous to the Sublime were loads of fun, with a variety of song, dance, silliness, and props.
LOTS of props.
Not to mention five costume changes, but who's counting?! Thanks everyone for the terrific feedback, and the lovely, warm reception. I was pretty sure you all would like selections such as "Who Can I Turn To," but when I threw in tunes about not wearing underwear or lesbian seagulls, who knows what can happen? Needless to say, everyone reacted just as I'd hoped, and I appreciate the enthusiastic responses.
Please feel free to leave your thoughts on a post here to share with others.
Some major "thank you's" that I didn't get to share on show night--
The Kathy Womack Gallery
(click here for gallery info! but then come back, ok?)
Green Mango Real Estate
(click here so I can sell you a house. Seriously. I need to cover costume costs!!!)
The Lind Family Foundation
David Perkoff Music
my Band, and the incredible Dustin L. Struhall
"Los Dos Nicoles"--the zany Nicole Shiro and Nicole Marosis...I COULD NOT have done this without you two...
and the AMAZING staff at Sterling Affairs/The Mansion at Judges' Hill who had to deal with my craziness, and also had to clean up after the confetti cannons, fire-eating, and molting feathers.
Lots of feathers. Sorry, PETA.
I've posted a few pictures here (in case you didn't come to the show...you know who you are...
and so do I, incidentally.)
...and look for some video soon. I think I might actually have enough technical wherewithall to get it loaded onto the blog...
Again, my many thanks to all who attended.
If you had HALF as much fun as I did, then it was a HUGE success!!!
