Genre: Other
Written by various playwrights, Directed by Shari Johnson

CREATURES OF THE CABARET, a late-night cabaret of new short plays about non-humans written by eight playwrights, opens Friday, March 9 at 11 p.m. at The Looking Glass Theatre.


Looking Glass playwrights offer their take on non-humans with stories range from the ridiculously profound to the profoundly ridiculous. Think about it: Eight million New Yorkers never realize that they're sharing the city with all sorts of non-humans. These beings are tired of being ignored and they're demanding your respect. They want their rights, along with what every New Yorker wants, a chance at show business! Here, the trolls, fairies, goblins and ghouls will entertain audiences in an evening of laughs and chills.

ONE, TWO, THREE, BREATHE by Lenore Blumenfeld

THE CLOCK IS TICKING by Nancy Gall-Clayton
