Cabaret Lunatique’s “Celebrate The Castro”

Teatro ZinZanni announces Cabaret Lunatique’s “Celebrate The Castro,” on June 4 at the glamorous Spiegeltent on Pier 29. This will be the fourth installment in a series of nine late-night cabarets each focusing on a distinctive San Francisco neighborhood. In true Castro style, the zany performances will showcase many local artists in a late night varieté spiced with saucy cabaret, crazed circus, scandal, music and plenty of mayhem. First launched in 2008, Teatro ZinZanni’s cabarets all sold out and are now back due to popular demand. The current series began in March with “Celebrate Chinatown” and a further five additional evenings are scheduled for the remainder of the year focusing on the neighborhoods of the Fillmore/Jazz, Haight Ashbury, SOMA, On the Waterfront, and The Hills.

“There is an audience in the Bay Area that is constantly searching for exciting and unique entertainment late at night,”said Teatro ZinZanni Managing Director Susan Outlaw. “Cabaret Lunatique fills that void."

“Celebrate The Castro” is the fourth cabaret of 2011 and features a group of talented local performers including transsexual fantasy girl Cassandra Cass; dazzling burlesque troupes The Twilight Vixen Revue pictured above, right) and the all-male SF Boylesque (pictured below, left); aerialist Oliver K. Pavick; ZinZanni regular Ling Rui; and theatrical singer Tom Orr. The evening will be hosted by former Miss Gay SF and award-winning actress, singer, writer and activist, Donna Sachet.
