BWW Review: A Great Evening of DARK & DIRTY Ditties by Bucket List Cabaret at Three Clubs
Featuring an eclectic mix of sexy, DARK & DIRTY show tunes and comedy songs, Bucket List Cabaret, the brain-child of Theatre 40 member Amanda Conlon and her husband Peter Flanigan, invaded Three Clubs on July 19, 2018 with an explosively entertaining evening of musical fun that kept its audience laughing from start to finish. I am not exactly sure how Ms. Conlon found (or perhaps created) such an amazing mix of naughty tunes, but I can say each one kept me laughing at the unexpected language and subject matter throughout the entire show.
The evening was the third installment of the new cabaret series, presented by Bucket List Cabaret, directed by Amanda Conlon with musical direction by Chris Yonan and produced by Peter Flanagan, featured these wonderfully talented singers: Kelly Brighton, Amanda Conlon, Courtney Cowart, Dahlya Glick, Adrianna Jones, Zach Kanner, Philip McBride, Michael C. Silva, Suzanne Slade, Chris Yonan, and Lindsay Zana. All of these enthusiastic performers seemed to be having the time of their lives onstage together, and I can only wonder how they managed to keep from laughing themselves at many of the lyrics!
The set list included songs from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, The Full Monty, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Cry Baby, Let My People Come, Little Shop of Horrors, a brilliant Jekyll & Hyde parody as well as tunes from Gilda Radner, Rodney Carrington, Joe Iconis, The Supremes, Ryan Scott Oliver, Tom Lehrer, Michael Bruce, Bill Nelson, Jeff Blumenkrantz and Rob Cantor.
Do catch this DARK & DIRTY and incredibly fun show the next time Bucket List Cabaret brings it to a theater in the greater Los Angeles area.
Bucket List Cabaret is next performing at Theatre 40 in Beverly Hills on Sunday July 29, 2018 at 7pm. Tickets are $28 with all proceeds benefiting Theatre 40. And while the songs that night will not be of the same dark & dirty variety as I was fortunate enough to enjoy at Three Clubs, I guarantee these talented entertainers will be just as enthusiastic and entertaining while raising funds for the professional theatre company on the campus of Beverly Hills High School.
Director Amanda Conlon and her Bucket Listers will perform their very own "bucket list" roles along with fun show tunes, re-imagined standards, parody songs, sketches and MORE! A great evening of fun is promised with all proceeds supporting Theatre 40. Bring your friends! For more info and to purchase tickets, visit https://www.bucketlisttheatre.com/cabaret
And that's not all... look for their production of "Silence! The Musical" set to run at The Actors Company in the Let Live Theatre this Halloween Season from October 11th-November 3rd (Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays at 8p - for a total of 12 performances over 4 weeks). I can only imagine how entertaining and funny it will be with poor Clarice tormented musically by not only Hannibal Lecter but also the furry-tailed lambs.
