Last Night: Triumph Over Adversity (And a Great Show!)
Ten-Foot Rat Cabaret triumphant last night! That barrel-over-Niagara Falls feeling when you sell out online and have Standbys – BUT have a medical emergency take out a key performer from your lineup last-minute. Thankfully the very talented Killy Dwyer stepped in… Just one of many thanks due:
The aforementioned Killy, in amazing musical performance-artiste form. Nataly Aukar, your work was tight and you were hysterical! (Book that gal!) Lola Selsky, what a serpentine sizzling dance performance — work together soon! Bill Chambers … my gods, you hit a new level with your Neil Diamond-channeling-Jello Biafra comedy-art-comedy (that angry tambourining!). Hot Todd Lincoln was very entertaining with his Circus Sideshow Strongman Storytelling (safe travels!)
Rat Crew/Venue Staff:
Jennifer Malbuisson, as always the Stage Manager theater pro par excellence — Merci beaucoup! Carter O’brien Ford in the tech booth and on the floor, keeping everyone hooked up, looking and sounding great, and getting set up in record time! Tess Henry working the door and juggling the tix logistics. And new friend Dana working the Bar and keeping the zillions of back-of-house details smooth and clean.
Host Jillian Thomas was on top of her game, very funny and energetic and got the show up and zooming!
My co-producer Rob Dub: you’re right, is IS usually the Scots. (With so few actual complaints, we’ll have to get back to work flaw-seeking at 9pm tonight.)
Special mention to Erez Ziv and the whole scrappy ragtag batallion at Frigid New York (nee Horse Trade Theater Group): thank you for all the countless things you do to maintain and nurture great independent art, theater and entertainment like our show.
But Mostly, THANKS, AUDIENCE! Thanks for coming out yet again and taking a chance on a real live East Village basement-theater show.
See you at the next Rat, on the next Second Saturday, June 8, 10:30pm! Ten-Foot Rat Cabaret: NYC’s Dance Music Comedy Art Show
- And to the Standbys we had to turn away: Reserve June Tickets now!*
