Hey folks!
I am in a play that opened last weekend. We have 5 more shows: tonight, tomorrow night, and thurs, fri, sat of next week. If you go to buy tickets for it put the code "PUNK" in for a big discount.



Le Cabaret Grimm



Written and directed by Jason Slavick
Adapted from Grimms' Tales
Composed by Cassandra Marsh
Choreography by Michelle Chasse

From somewhere between Paris, Berlin and the bowels of the Bowery comes Le Cabaret Grimm, a punk cabaret tale of loss, longing, and desire - with a healthy dose of irony. We've got sexy girls and boys, conjoined twins, demons, and talking chickens. We'll take you on a journey drawn from the Tales of the Brothers Grimm, with music, mask, dance, and spectacle, led by the great chanteuse Veronique du Blahblahblah.

Each night we are joined by special guest performers. We bring you music, burlesque, circus, drag and more, hosted by the extraordinary Johnny Blazes.

Welcome to Le Cabaret Grimm!

Come to this event, please:

Tuesday, December 8, 2009

7:30pm - 11:55pm

Church
69 Kilmarnock Street
Boston, MA


Yes, we know it's a TUESDAY.

And we've heard ALL the excuses before, ad nauseum - it's a weeknight, and you suffer from that horrible disease, Dayjobia...or your controlling significant other *insists* that you head directly home from work, yada yada...

The fine folks in Sans Nomenclature request that you throw off all pre-conceptions and societal confines, down 9 cups of expresso, and come out for "dinner and a show"!

The Church of Boston (which most of you know, isn't a church at all, but fabulous rock club) has a WONDERFUL MENU. We're going to have dinner there before we go on stage, and we are inviting you to join us.

http://www.churchofboston.com/dinner_menu.php

We take the stage at 8 pm sharp, and share a bill with Jay Carey, Erinn Brown, and The Brooklyns.

Wow, what a lineup! You can even bring your mom (we like moms!)

$6 cover.
