It’s just over a month until our season opener. Saturday, November 4, at 7:30 and 10:00 p.m. presents “Life is a Cabaret! – An evening with Delighted Tobehere and Vod KaStinger“. The 7:30 p.m. show is SOLD OUT, but tickets are now on sale for the 10:00 p.m. show at the link below.

We are also pleased that the concert will be co-sponsored by the Triangle Community Center, which is Fairfield County’s leading provider of programming and resources which nurtures growth and connection within the LGBTQ community for the past 27 years.

Two of New York City’s best known drag queen entertainers will be bursting into song and humor as they take you down memory lane with some of the great tunes from the American Songbook, accompanied by Craig Scott Symons, piano, Tod Hedrick, bass, and Charles Kiger, drums. Both of these stars are personal friends of Craig’s and he guarantees a show you won’t want to miss!

Delighted Tobehere’s entertainment career began in February 2001, and was named as one of the funniest drag queens in America by the Huffington Post. In 2015, Delighted debuted on NBC’s America’s Got Talent to rave reviews and 4 Yes votes from the judges. A self-described “Queen of all Trades,” Delighted combines celebrity illusion, vocal impressions, live vocals, lip sync, comedy, intelligence, and quick wit to wow audiences. Delighted debuted her solo cabaret, High Heels and Low Notes, accompanied by Craig Symons, at New York City’s legendary Feinstein’s/54 Below, a cabaret space in the basement of the famed Studio 54. For the last two years, Delighted has also been the guest star for the First Church Holiday Staff Party.

Miss Vodka Stinger has been a New York City nightlife staple for over 10 years. She started her career hosting game shows in various saloons and bars around NYC, but quickly and smoothly made the transition from bars to nightclubs, and then landed with a bang in the cabaret scene blowing the roof off of Feinstein’s/54 Below 4 years ago with her nightclub debut Lower Your Expectations. Since then, Miss Stinger has become a regular at 54 Below creating and selling out ten new shows in 4 years. Recently Miss Stinger returned to her theatrical roots starring Off-Broadway in Christmas With The Crawfords and joining the cast of Scott Ellis’s Comedy Of Errors at The Old Globe Theater in San Diego. Miss Vodka Stinger is an archivist and musical theater historian with one of the largest collections of Broadway-related videos in the country.
