Quarantine Cabaret

5:00 pm
Runs 5 minutes

Presented by Lakeshore Players Theatre
  • Cabaret/variety

After much thought, planning, creating, and discussion on how we can continue to bring the arts to our phenomenal community even though we currently cannot gather at the theatre, Lakeshore Players Theatre is proud to present QUARANTINE CABARET!

Join us every Friday at 5:00 pm for a new episode of QUARANTINE CABARET to be released on our Facebook and Instagram pages, along with our YouTube channel and website. These episodes will feature performances by some of our favorite LPT Community Members. We've got singing, dancing, sketch comedy, and who knows what else!

In addition to our QUARANTINE CABARET, we are also launching our LPT Artist Fund to help support our artists during these difficult times. If you are interested in donating, you can do so by following this link: https://bit.ly/LPTArtistFund.

We are so excited for you to watch the amazing talent we have lined up. We look forward to seeing you here at 5:00 every Friday for some entertainment and community! #LPTCommunity #LPTQCab

ABOUT THE SHOW

What happens when human folly runs face-first into apocalypse? Stolen placentas, political genies, sad puppies, Elder Gods, cryogenically frozen comedians...welcome to this election year's grotesque anthology of comic horror, with no mention whatsoever of a certain ancient Greek philosopher.
 
WARNING: contains profanity, gunshots, graphic descriptions of violent and sexual acts, and a wildly inappropriate spirit of levity.
 
phillip andrew bennett low is a Chinese-American playwright and poet, storyteller and mime, theatre critic and libertarian activist. His solo performances have won acclaim from Minneapolis to Atlanta, New York to LA -- even as far as Melbourne, Australia. He was the co-founder of the Rockstar Storytellers (a supergroup of bestselling Twin Cities spoken-word artists), founder and producer of the touring theatre troupe Maximum Verbosity, and founder and host of the country's only openmic dedicated to speculative fiction, The Not-So-Silent Planet, and its associated podcast. He has published two humor collections, Indecision Now! and Get Thee Behind Me, Santa.

PRAISE FOR PHILLIP LOW AND MAXIMUM VERBOSITY

"Writer phillip low is a talented man with a gift for caustic monologues. But he also has a crazed sense of humor..."
-Kansas City Stage

"Liberation through extreme tastelessness may be Low's most powerful self-help prescription. His precursor in this mode is Paul Krassner..."
-Jay Harvey, Upstage (Indianapolis)

"...puts to shame the notion: 'Brevity is the soul of wit.' ...with his offbeat sense of humor, he offers up a desperate cry for common sense for the country, if not the world."
-Tristan Miller, comedian

"...an accomplished writer and performer with a wonderfully wicked sense of humor...also viciously intelligent and terrifyingly well-read...ranges from sophomoric laughs to incisive political and cultural observations."
-E.J. Bouinatchova, author of Fresh Cut
