We’re off to see the wizard!

We are starting to see the slow reopening of some businesses in our cities, and this is good. I hope that the numbers of affected people will continue to decrease even as things reopen. But, even as businesses test the waters, the live performer is still without work. We are not sure when any live performances will begin again, and until we know more, we will continue to produce Quarantine Cabaret.

Today, we are thrilled to release Episode 17. We have amazing acts from the UK, LA and OZ! I also take you on a very special trip to my top-secret storage bunker to perform my act “Stripping Away” just for you. Hey, it wouldn’t fit in my living room, so we found a way! I will stop at nothing to create magic for you. Watch now!

And a reminder that Ep 2 of Uncen$ored is premiering with a BRAND NEW cast on June 19th. Grab your early bird tickets for that now and save $5.

This is such a trying time and we are all living in the upside down. I hope that you remain healthy and safe.Thank you for your continued support. I look forward to the day when I can see you in person.

Live with LOVE, today and everyday.

Quarantine Cabaret

I promised you some entertainment in this pandemic and I’m delivering on that promise today! I now present to you, QUARANTINE CABARET!

This idea was planted on Monday and we’ve been working so hard to get this out to you today! The response from performers around the world has been amazing! We are going to have many episodes to come, as LA was just put on lockdown until April 19th.  My living room is now a production studio!
Our hearts are warm from the video submissions we have received and we are so happy to bring you top tier entertainment from all over the world.
The episodes are free to watch. As artists, we have been hit very hard by this pandemic. Many of us don’t have 401Ks or other adult things in place for times like these. The gig life is a tough life. On a normal day, we don’t know where our next paycheck is coming from, but now we REALLY don’t know. We understand that many people, not just artists, have been hurt financially due to recent events, which is why we wanted this to be a free experience. However, if you do have a little extra, we ask that you venmo or paypal @quarantinecabaret. Be sure to include the episode number in the memo line. All the donations will be split among the performers that are featured in each episode. If you cannot donate, please share. Get this out there! The only thing artists like more than money is validation! Spread the word!
Watch the first two episodes of Quarantine Cabaret here!
We don’t need art to survive, but we need art to LIVE. We hope to bring you life!
Be well
