Virtues of Loving Her: A Cabaret Showcase

When: Sat., Feb. 11, 6:30 p.m. 2017

Historically, cabaret has been critical of regimes, dispensing dissent and subversion with a raised glass and a sly wink. In recent decades, it has sold off some of its substance for spectacle as burlesque has become commonplace—even presidential. But perhaps cabaret's time has come around again as a kind of tonic for the Sturm und Drang of street protests and anxious letter-writing campaigns. We could all use a damn drink and a show. The Triangle chapter of the Human Rights Campaign will deliver that and more in Virtues of Loving HER, a cocktail reception and cabaret organized by singer Nekeyeta Newkirk and featuring a to-die-for lineup. The proceeds go to the HRC, America's largest civil rights organization working on LGBTQ equality. "Performers have volunteered their time and talents to come together to tell the story of the many virtues of being in love with a woman," says Newkirk, promising an "emotional roller coaster" of ballads, show tunes, and pop. The performers include Culture Mill's Murielle Elizéon, poet Danielle "Blaize" Cortez, and singers, dancers, and musicians Loni Price, Germona Harper, Heather Rogers, Destiny Diamond, and Morgan Flowerchild Jones, all emceed by The Queen of Hearts. —Chris Vitiello
