4th Annual, ALL-NEW Cabaret Macabre

Portrait with Urn Leslie McConnaughey
Performance Dates

Cabaret Macabre is a series of dark, comic vignettes, songs and physical comedy expertly executed. Inspired by Edward Gorey, Victorian nightmares, dangerous croquet, gothic romance, afternoon tea and perils of the deep, it features music played live with deadly flare and Happenstance Theater’s witty, visual theatrical collage. 

“Cabaret Macabre” often looks like a Gorey illustration brought to life." - The Washington Post

“…ghoulishly gratifying…it’s a wonderfully imagined, expertly choreographed meditation on a theme… the severity of their physical technique opens up boundless opportunities for humor. - The Washington City Paper
