This Wednesday evening, May 24th at Seattle’s Egyptian Theater, Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) in partnership with Qurb Media Group present a special festival screening event: CABARET
Seattle drag icon and RuPaul’s Drag Race star ROBBIE TURNER stars in a pre-screening cabaret inspired show with special guests Abbey Roads, Mackenzie Miller, Visage LaRue, and more!
“What good is sitting alone in your room? Come hear the music play! Life is a cabaret, old chum, come to the CABARET!”
Seattle International Film Festival and Qurb Media Group invite you to dress in your finest cabaret-style duds for an evening inside the fabled Kit Kat Club as Seattle drag icon Robbie Turner (“RuPaul’s Drag Race”) presents an original Cabaret-inspired revue followed by a screening of Bob Fosse’s Academy Award winning 1972 film.
Whether we are dealing with 1930’s Nazi Germany, regressive politics, or future power struggles, Cabaret will live on as something more than just an acclaimed and entertaining film, but a cautionary tale for the ages. The Kit Kat Club serves as a reminder not to isolate ourselves so much from what is going on in society that the darker days of history can easily repeat itself and democracy can be threatened.
Be sure to arrive early to the Egyptian Theater on Wednesday May 24, 2017 for a delightful pre-screening cocktail hour and photo opportunity hosted by a bevy of special guests and local entertainment including ABBEY ROADS, MACKENZIE MILLER, VISAGE LARUE, and more!
Doors open at 6:00PM with pre-show cabaret entertainment beginning a 7:00PM. Tickets to this special film festival screening event are available at any SIFF venue box office or get them online at: https://www.siff.net/festival/cabaret ($15-$25)
A handful of lucky guests will also win tickets to see the upcoming touring production of the original Broadway musical “Cabaret” courtesy of Seattle Theater Group. Direct from Broadway, the acclaimed masterpiece returns to Seattle with performances at the Paramount Theater June 13-25. As part of their 50th Anniversary Season, the critically acclaimed and award-winning Roundabout Theatre Company is proud to present SAM MENDES (Skyfall, American Beauty) and ROB MARSHALL’S (Into the Woods and Chicago, the films) Tony Award®-winning production of CABARET.
