What a Beautiful Beast: Ten-Foot Rat Last Weekend
Sometimes a GREAT show takes 24 hours to recover from. Ten-Foot Rat Cabaret this past Saturday Dec. 8 was such a show! Musicians, instruments, costumes, props, comedy of all types, Mime Burlesque(!), multiple keyboards, singers, dancers, Xmas story, funk-soul rock and Broadway belting – an Insane Wonder!
Let us give thanks to all who made this great beast work:
Performers, in order of appearance: SisterMonk (Kathy Deane, Tani Tilsner, Jody Ozomaki, Ina Taurus), Pamela Wess aka Madame Bouge, Gregor of Berlin* , members of Guilty Pleasures Cabaret (Bridget Bose, Kayla Radomski, Annie Ester), Bill Chambers, Julie A Feltman and pianist Angelo, sketch troupe Thank You For Your Cervix (Alison Wien, Case Watson, Dani Elizabeth Letsche).

Uber-Host Jillian Thomas, who went above and beyond – working raucously with a calf in a cast, no less!
Rat staff/crew who did a superhuman job: Booth and house tech Carter O’brien Ford, balancing hardware and software and aesthetics like a madman. Stage/House Manager Jennifer Malbuisson, who could probably organize the D-Day Invasion (and we wouldnt have had any lost paratroopers – they’d all be in “Places”). Diana Van Decker Byrne tending the bar and gracefully maintaining the theater space; and Tess Henry running the door and helping out in a zillion other little ways.
Natch, my co-producer of 5-plus years, Rob Dub: Plan 9 worked! Let’s see how Plan 10 goes!!!
And as always: Youse, you-all, ustedes, the AUDIENCE, who bundled up, lined up, packed (PACKED!) a Sold-Out house – and loved what you saw and heard! Thank you for an amazing 2018. See you at the next Ten-Foot Rat on Saturday, Jan. 12, 10:30pm.
