Risqué Business

What happens when a group of twisted, renegade artist types decide to transform their performance space into a vaudevillian cabaret? Sheer madness, apparently, ´cause that's what the brilliantly warped minds at Soul Invictus are calling their new Sheer Madness Cabaret.

The run opens with a benefit for Artists’ Theatre Project and includes, but is certainly not limited to, slapstick sketch-comedy acts, musical interludes, short films, and a hearty dose of drag. The first installment serves as a sneak preview of Artists' Theatre Project's upcoming season, and features a, uh, remount of Debbie Does Dallas: The Musical as well as the Southwest première of Slut: A Wholesome New Musical. There will be selected musical performances from recent productions, as well, such as Tick*Tick*BOOM! and Scream Queens. So before you hit the bars, grab your fruitiest pal and satisfy your inner drama geek.

The delightfully risqué production is all-ages, so bring the kiddies . . . if you dare.
