Our gal in Providence, the delectable Kristen Minsky is producing a real doozy of a Winter Ball. Here is the skinny:
The time is near for CHIFFEROBE: A Jazz-Age Cabaret, part deux! On the evening of Friday, January 22, Kristen Minsky and Tazza are teaming up again to bring you all of the dark nightlife sizzle of our premier event with all of the bohemian romance of early 1900s Paris! Think feathers, artists, champagne, chocolate and absinthe, but of course!
Entertainment for the evening includes the nostalgia music maestro himself Adriel Azure and His Dream Indigo Orchestra, who have invited special guests; vocalist Wednesday Greenbomb (new group member) and accordionist Tom Persinos (solo 9-10) sitting in. They will finesse our heart-strings with the majestic sound of Jazz, Tango and other gems of old. Having just been voted Best Burlesque Act 2009 by Loungerati, 1920s tap sensations The Minsky Sisters will be back on the floor for a flap, a tap and a celebratory glass of champagne with Greek goddess and New York-based burlesque phenomenon Pandora Scintillator. Puppeteer, Jeanne DelGiudice, will introduce you to her petit ami, and a little green fairy will be making her way through the crowd to serve you an inspiring taste of liquid inspiration!
Taste a treat by tazza’s own chocolatier and a period cocktail from the menu developed by Atlanta-based mixologist, Adam Fox… Don’t forget to visit vendor Calico, have your cards read by Maribeth or peek over the shoulders of artists Elizabeth Lamb and Amy Wynne Derry as they interpret the scene. In addition, please be sure to stop by and visit C.C. Acquistapace and Greg Romano for a portrait or two!
Come dressed to impress in your 1920s-40s best or evening wear. Tickets are available at an advance rate of $10 ($15 at the door) with a special VIP package of $35, which includes a private pre-show soiree (beginning at 9pm) with the entertainers, hors d’oeuvres and a cocktail, complimentary period cocktail tasting, chocolate, reserved seating, and more! Doors open at 10 for all guests and the cabaret will begin shortly thereafter.
Just keep in mind: anything goes as long as it’s over the top or under the table!
