Two of New Orlean’s most talented and unstoppable performers have teamed up as a dynamic duo to present Marquee - an ode to the trail blazers of the New Orleans cabaret. Brought to you by Vinsantos, LadyBEAST, and Le Petit Theatre - this heartwarming show gives a window into the history of New Orleans cabaret from the 1890’s through the 1950s. A dynamic cast of characters from drag, burlesque, vaudeville and circus pay homage to the colorful history of this well know, but less understood cultural staple of American theatre.
This playful performance lends tribute to the pioneers of New Orleans cabaret such as Nita and Zita, Barbette, and Josephine Baker. Ensemble acts of bawdy burlesque, death defying circus, vaudeville dance comedy, live music and more are tactfully performed by modern stars of the New Orleans cabaret scene including Franky Canga, TitiBaby, Sweet Tooth Simone, Cherry Bombshell, Madame Mystere, Vinsantos and LadyBEAST. Original music by Vinsantos and choreography by LadyBEAST.
There will be a mini museum on display in the lobby of the theatre of historical artifacts for the audience to experience prior to seeing the show.
The show's storytellers will lead you through the experiences of cabaret on and off the stage while the artists will take your breathe away with memorable performances.
