Irreverently Yours, The Shushan Queens
with Kiki Lipsett
Thursday, March 1, 8 PM
Starline Social Club, Oakland
Fee: $10 in advance/$15 at the door
Event is 21+
A raucous, brand-new musical and party for Purim (the Jewish holiday where the world turns upside down). Conceived by creative maven Kiki Lipsett and just for adults, think cabaret fun, politics, feminism, costumes (including on you), drinks, and a springtime dance party.
Featuring: Kiki Lipsett, Evan Gelfand, Brady Gill, Shana Rappaport, Kelly Rogala
Expect whoops, hollers, and kazoos sounding at every mention of Haman’s name. If the Book of Esther and Madonna had a child, it would be this hip, hilarious, feminist, political, true-to-tale story of your favorite characters in Shushan. Possibly with a few twists. And definitely with audience participation in a beauty pageant to choose the next queen Esther.
Cosponsored by The Jewish Studio Project.
