SULTRY… SEXY…. SASSY….
Adjectives that inspire the senses and the imagination and most aptly give insight to the Lost Cherry Cabaret, a joint production venture between PS Underground, a secret members only supper club and Pete’s Hideaway/Wendy’s Hideout in Palm Springs. If you have ever longed to journey back to the early days of the sensuous and bawdy cabaret nightclubs, here’s your chance.
Pete’s Hideaway, owned by father/daughter duo Pete & Wendy, known for their exceptional menu, great entertainment and creative new shows, is the perfect partner for PS Underground and this fun, creative, retro experience called Lost Cherry Cabaret. Wendy’s Hideout, newly transformed into a 1930’s style speakeasy with dim lights and intimate seating inside the club, offers the perfect setting for a showcase of talent that will take you back to a time of sexy and sultry singers who perform music from a variety of eras ranging from the 1930’s through the 1960’s and will give you a unique night of nostalgia that leaves you craving just one more song.
Lost Cherry Cabaret, can only be described as one of the most exciting and titillating theatrical experiences in town. As the entertainment unfolds right in the middle of the room, be prepared for an incredible night of music, laughs, drinks and culinary delights. Dark and intimate, elegant and decadent, theatre-in-the-round does not get any better than this.
Top tier performance artists Francesca Amari, an award winning actress who has appeared in cabaret clubs from New York to Los Angeles, Robbie Wayne, a veteran performer, costumer and choreographer and Siobhan Velarde, who has been featured in nightclubs, cabarets and theaters all over Southern California, slip in and out of characters as easily as they change costumes. Their engaging and enticing renditions of songs such as ‘Ain’t Misbehavin’, Fever, Eleanor Rigby and When You’re Good to Mama, will leave you laughing, smiling and eagerly anticipating the next presentation. This gifted trio, accompanied by talented pianist Mark Kahny, will most certainly make you beg for more.
Lost Cherry Cabaret, was conceived and directed by PS Underground co-founder Michael Fietsam, who has an extensive background in theater direction and his partner David Horgen, a culinary professional.
