Divers/Cité ::: Cabaret de Minuit

Posted on July 28th, 2009 by .

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that Divers/Cité was coming. Last night the festival began with a romantic, star-lit movie in the park, a charming way to ease into a week of jam-packed entertainment.

New this year to the Divers/Cité programming is Cabaret de Minuit: The New York Series. (Did I mention that I enjoy New York?) The series features three creative and cutting-edge NYC performers over three nights. Out of all the diverse and exciting programming of the festival, these shows have me most excited…

The line up:

Joey Arias (Tonight) – Cabaret singer, drag sensation, Mistress of Seduction for Cirque du Soleil’s Zumanity. Known for channeling Billy Holiday.

Geo Wyeth aka Novice Theory (Wednesday) – Actor, accordionist, wordsmith. Ballsy with a wink.

Justin Bond (Thursday) – Legend, chanteuse, song-interpreter extraordinaire. Played himself in Shortbus. Performing original work for Divers/Cité.

Can’t wait for these shows. I’ll be at all three.

All shows at Koko Bar (8 Sherbrooke West)
$12 per show
Each begins at 11:59 PM

Insider Recommendation: To ensure that you get some “Montreal” in your New York night, I suggest a truly unique local experience… dining at The Spirite Lounge. It is part French bistro and part Stanley Kubrick film. Finish your meal or you’ll pay extra.
