POLITICALLY INCORRECT CABARET
Masters' Cabaret, the classic cabaret duo featuring soprano Diane McNaron and a variety of guest pianists, appears throughout the South to longstanding audience and critical acclaim. From the haunting Cabarets of Berlin to the glittering lights of Broadway & Paris, Masters' Cabaret showcases two veteran entertainers in authentic Cabaret music from Germany, France and the US. With stories of the glamorous and often controversial divas like Marlene Dietrich, Lotte Lenya and Edith Piaf, top hats, tails and sophisticated humor, their performances sparkle with the mystique and romance of the cabaret. M.C. appears on galas, benefits, chamber music series and in upscale nightclubs.
Launched in 2003, The Politically Incorrect Cabaret* is the only Berlin-style cabaret in the US. Drawn from the political cabarets of the late Weimar Republic, the P. I. Cabaret confronts today's political climate head on. Decidely adult, progressive and outrageously costumed, the group rocks with deliciously dark energy and a devastatingly accurate bashing of fascists, past and present. Based in Birmingham, Alabama, the P. I. C. regularly appears there and in Atlanta, Biloxi, Nashville, New Orleans and Huntsville.
"... Fearless ... bracing ... highly sympathetic ..." ~ N. Raabe, The Birmingham News
