Cabaret Noir: A Film Noir Theatrical Montage


“… A glimmer of story, a hatful of characters, a whisper of atmosphere, a smorgasbord of music and a scent of mystery. Those who love Film Noir will be delighted, those who don't care for it will be charmed and amused…”  - Broadway World

A series of dark, comic vignettes reveals Femmes Fatales and fedoras, trench coats and torch songs, intrigue, suspense and shadows. Featuring the six players of Happenstance Theater in a virtuosic display of physical comedy, object manipulation, and period style, music played on multiple instruments, and characters costumed in vintage clothing.
