Does the mere mention of Valentine's Day give you the hives? Do roses make you itch? Does sappy music give you palpitations? Do images of glossy, photo-shopped relationships give you heartburn?
We've got you covered.
Are you a die-hard romantic? A starry-eyed dreamer who's already bought your chocolates and champagne for your special someone?
We've also got you covered.
Recreating one of NYC's famous queer clubs of the 1930s, this alternative-Valentine's revue offers music, dance and skits around a rainbow of non-traditional relationships: some healthy, some not-so-healthy, some sexy, and some even downright creepy...but none of them found on a Hallmark card.
Come join us for an evening of good music, questionable morals and (so good they're) bad jokes! With music by Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Kurt Weill and others, there's something for everyone...even romantics.
