Lizzie Violet’s Cabaret Noir is a monthly event that brings you an evening of indie artistry and cabaret. The mistress of ceremonies, Lizzie Violet will introduce cabaret stylings such as poetry, Spoken Word, music, Burlesque, comedy and a variety of other vaudeville style acts. Inspired by Vaudeville of the early 1900’s, it will be an evening of pure entertainment.
Each monthly event will have three features that consist of one part poetry (spoken word and slam as well), one part music and one part vaudeville (burlesque/magic/comedy). A night of frivolity and entertainment for all. Lizzie Violet’s Cabaret Noir will be the second Sunday of every month at the The Central on Markham Street, from 7 pm to 10:30 pm. Keeping with the theme of cabaret’s roots, music will be unplugged, poetry will be edgy and the vaudeville will be sassy!
We will have limited open mic spots (for poets, performers, comedians, burlesque and musicians). Sign up starts at 7.
This is a PWYC event. (the door suggested price $5 and up)
Each show you will be greeted at the door by our our absolutely amazingly dandy and handsome ToPoet.ca! (make sure to check out his website and poetry)
Lizzie Violet’s Cabaret Noir is a Cabaret Noir Productions.
