One Night of Song, Burlesque, and Comedy; Friday, October 7th for the 2nd Annual “Catbaret”
New York, NY, September 21, 2011— Sixteen theatrical artists of dance, burlesque, song, comedy, and storytelling will come together Friday, October 7 for the “Catbaret,” a special variety show to celebrate the feline qualities of life and raise funds for Anjellicle Cats Rescue (ACR), a no kill cat rescue and adoption group that is one of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals’ Alliance Participating Organizations. A huge success last year, the 2011 “Catbaret” will be held at 7:00 p.m. at the Laurie Beechman Theater, 407 West 42nd Street.
This special fundraising event will feature entertainment by some of New York City’s top performers including Songstresses Cathy La Valle, Stephanie Sellars, Kiela Mellott, and Laura MacLean; Storyteller Joe Dettmore; Burlesque stars Lusty Le Mew and Dixie Lee Rose, Lounge Legend Trudy Carmichael; and Clown Artist Peter Daniel Straus. Mistress of Ceremonies is Jojo La Purr, and Ed Goldschneider will be on piano.
Glittering laughter and the grand performances is all in support of ACR that rescues, rehabilitates, and adopts out New York City’s homeless cats and kittens, with a focus on local shelter animals in immediate danger of being euthanized. Currently ACR has over 200 cats in its care located throughout its large foster network or at one of its four adoption centers located throughout Manhattan.
Ninety percent of ticket sales of the “Catbaret” will go directly back to ACR and its efforts in rescuing New York City’s many homeless and abandoned cats and kittens. Tickets are $20 and there is a $15 food/drink minimum. The food/drink minimum covers the cost of the theater. Reservations are recommended by calling 212-695-6909.
