It’s been almost a year since a kitchen fire at The Flying Beaver on Parliament occurred, causing that excellent performance venue to close its doors for good. If you’re like me, the question on your mind must be “What will Maggie Cassella do next?”

Cassella not only booked the Beaver, she has in the past also run the very successful We’re Funny That Way comedy festival. She’s a ball of energy and very well connected. Last year, she started doing shows on an irregular basis, but now the big news is that she’s back. 

“Okay so it’s official,” she just announced. “I’m producing a cabaret series at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre every month.  Two shows plus a ‘social’ after the second show.”

The first show, The “V” Stands for Variety, You Perverts, is at 7pm on Friday, January 29. It will feature such hilarious performers as Shannon McDonough, Katie Ford, and Jennifer Walls. This is followed by a 9pm performance by the very talented John Alcorn and his incredible trio. Then, after Alcorn’s show is Let’s Dance: A David Bowie Social, which is “not really a dance party, just some time to celebrate what the man meant to a lot of us queer kids.” Tickets can be purchased at: http://buddiesinbadtimes.com/event/the-v-stands-for-variety-you-perverts/ or at Buddies In Bad Times box office.

Sounds like an incredibly fun night.
