Glamour. Fame. True crime. Live music. Come celebrate all things cabaret with Bovine Metropolis' new show: Improv Cabaret: An Improvised Fosse Musical. Inspired by the music, dance, and style of the Jazz Age and musicals such as Cabaret and Chicago, Improv Cabaret explores both the high-energy and dangerous sides of life in a metropolis through improvised scenes and music.
“You get the experience of seeing a musical in Denver’s theater district,” says Director Kat Bond, “AND you have the joy of seeing the only performance created by your suggestions. It’s your private performance of a one-time show."
Be careful, though—not everything in Improv Cabaret is coming up roses. All those passing strangers, those narrow alleyways, those high-rise shadows mean that danger lurks in the urban jungle.
“Improv Cabaret is a dangerous musical," says Bond. "While it is a comedy, we will not shy away from scarier or grittier subject matter. . . . Our characters will be on the fringe of society, the oddballs. You can be a murderer or a starlet in this show, even if you work at the dog groomer. Expect to laugh. Expect a story. Expect to see deeper themes and social commentary in a fun way.”
Improv Cabaret plays in November and December on Wednesdays and late night on Saturdays. (Wednesdays, Nov 15, 29, Dec 6 & Saturdays on Nov 4, 11 & 18)
