PINKABOO! WITH PHOENICIA & VIC AT ACT THEATRE
PINKABOO! I see you. Come out of the closet...wherever you are, and revel in this grand evening of gender-bending buffoonery. Many of the region's best and brightest entertainers are coming out to perform with the saucy cabaret duo "Phoenicia & Vic"(Wade Madsen & Victor Janusz) in their upcoming show, PINKABOO! The Closeted American Songbook, at ACT Theatre, 700 Union St.

ACT's Central Heating Lab presents 8 performances, Friday and Saturday nights, June 20-July 12. Special guests include: Teatro Zinzanni alumni El Vez, Manuela Horn and Kevin Kent (Teatro Zinzanni star/host), Peggy Platt (Ham for the Holidays), Sarah Rudinoff (Go There, Genius Award Winner), The Heavenly Spy (burlesque), Jicama & The Contessa (puppeteers/dancers), The Fishnettes (dancers) and Babette La Fave (the Shadow Puppet Lady). Contact ACT for schedule of special guests.

With a consistent nod to Coward-esque sophistication, PINKABOO! is a fabulously delicious and playful companion piece to ACT's mainstage production, A Marvelous Party: The Noel Coward Celebration. Along with their pals, Phoenicia & Vic will stir up trouble and pillage dozens of great standards and early 20th century showtunes. Together, they recreate a late-night speakeasy, giving answer to the question: "What happens after Noel Coward leaves the comfort of the closeted stage and retires with his cronies in an after-hour club?"

PINKABOO! begins immediately after A Marvelous Party. The bar will be wide open and will feature PINKABOO! martinis. Tickets are $10 (FREE with same day ticket stub from A Marvelous Party) and are available at the ACT Ticket Office, 700 Union St, Seattle, or by phone at 206-292-7676 or online at www.acttheatre.org.
