Happenstance Theater presents the Cabaret Noir: A Film Noir inspired theatrical montage. This 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. Performed by Mark Jaster, Sabrina Mandell, Karen Hansen, Gwen Grastorf, Sarah Olmsted Thomas and Alex Vernon.

“…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

Tickets: $23 General Admission, $17 Student, Senior or Veteran. Click here.
