THE GREATEST SHOWQUEEN!


A New Musical Parody Revue
Written & Performed by Tom Orr
Directed by Marie Ruzicka
Musical Direction by John Lehrack

4 Shows Only! 4 Sundays in June!
5pm Door • 6pm Curtain • 6/2-6/23

After an absence of 22 years, Tom Orr -- the creative mind behind the award-winning musical parody revue Dirty Little Showtunes!, a long-running smash hit at Re-bar in 1997-98 -- is back in Seattle with a new solo cabaret and a multitude of new perverted twists on classic showtunes.

Winner of 3 Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle awards (Best Musical, Best Lyrics & Best Actor), Orr brings his diabolical wordplay and a uniquely skewed worldview to the forefront with his latest work, a look back at his colorful past and a sneak peek at his bright future, with new material and selections from his prior solo shows: I Feel A Thong Coming On!, A Crass Act!, The Devil Wears Nada!, Aging Bull! and A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To His Forearm!

He has been called "The Lost Love Child of Al & Dorothy Parker," is a former theatre critic for The Seattle Times, won kudos for his lyrics for Pimpin'! and Who Killed Stephen Sondheim?, was "Best Cashier" in The Seattle Weekly Readers' Poll & recently survived a major flood!

Pianist John Lehrack's career as a professional musician spans three decades and includes time as a performer, educator, business owner and more. He has appeared as a featured performer with San Francisco City Summer Opera, Solano Symphony, San Francisco Cabaret Opera, Maui Symphony Chorus, Gay Men's Chorus of Honolulu, South Coast Chorale and many regional companies. He launched Dorothy's Piano Bar in 2017.

Marie Ruzicka is an accomplished actress, director, choreographer, consultant, podcaster (Magickal Land of [Awe]some), author and solo performer: "Why Am I So Happy? An Introvert's Journey to #LivinTheJOMOLife" opens soon.

UNICORN is a popular new bar and restaurant hosting weekly drag cabarets on Seattle's Capitol Hill, with a second location opening soon at White Center in S. Seattle.

With humor from around the world and some of the finest actors in my pay range, you'll find something that will make you laugh, make you smile, and if nothing else make you groan. So please join us and for goodness sake; Please laugh.

OUR VENUES

 

Seattle First Baptist Church

1111 Harvard Ave

Our shows at Seattle First are held in the basement in the Fridell Lounge.  While the thought of "church basement" sends shivers down some spines, this venue is not your mother's church basement or Baptist church.  Dorothy's Cabaret at Seattle First features comfortable seating at cabaret tables, theatre lighting, a great sound system, a Steinway grand piano and lots of refreshments.  The church is ADA accessible and also offers gender neutral bathrooms.  Parking is easy (but not free) in the large lot adjacent to the church.  Located in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood, you can find a multitude of restaurants and bars nearby for a pre- or post dinner or cocktails.  Find more information about SFBC at http://www.seattlefirstbaptist.org/

 

JewelBox Theatre

2322 2nd Ave

The JewelBox Theatre at the Rendezvous Seattle is an intimate theatre space with a small stage and full tech capabilities. The Rendezvous has a full drink and dinner menu. Patrons who make dinner reservations at the Rendezvous prior to a show also receive early seating for the performance. Both food and drinks can be served throughout a show. http://www.therendezvous.rocks/

 

Re-bar

1114 Howell St.

A long time downtown and Capitol Hill-adjacent Seattle favorite for live music, dancing, cabaret shows and more, Re-bar is home to our regular Piano Bar nights.  Re-bar offers comfortable seating around cabaret tables, in booths or at the bar.  The cocktails are delicious and the staff is the friendliest in town.  Re-bar is a cash-only establishment but an ATM is located inside the bar so you’re sure to never run out of funds.  You must be 21 and up to attend events at Re-bar.  Our piano bar features a digital keyboard on Re-bar's stage and their great crew makes sure we have professional lighting and plenty of mics for anyone who wants to sing.  You can visit Re-bar online at http://www.rebarseattle.com/

The Lumber Yard Bar

9619 16th Ave SW

Located in Seattle’s White Center Neighborhood, the Lumber Yard is a fun space with great service and cool environment. In addition to the upstairs main bar, there is also a lounge located in the basement and an outdoor space for when weather permits. The Lumber Yard also has a full service bar and dinner is available. The friendly staff and patrons make you feel right at home. https://www.thelumberyardbar.com
