Cabaret show at Folly Theater boasts award-winning stars, international headliner



On February 8th, the creative team that brought you The New Century Follies Revue at the historic Folly Theater now presents Hey-Hey Cabaret: An Evening at the New Century Follies Speakeasy. Hey-Hey Cabaret celebrates the seedier underbelly of Kansas City’s legendary jazz-age nightlife with burlesque and variety performance set to live music by The People’s Liberation Big Band. The show takes place at 9 p.m. at The Arts Asylum (1000 e. 9th St, KCMO). Tickets are $20 and easily procured by visiting Brown Paper Tickets online, or they may be purchased at the door the night of the show. Performers include: burlesque by Cherry Typhoon (Tokyo, Japan), Lola van Ella (St. Louis), Sammich the Tramp (St. Louis), fire and daredevil feats by Jason Divad, comedic pantomime by Damian Blake and Brian Stubler, vocal and burlesque performance by local favorites Sweet Louise, Opal Malone, and Annie Cherry, aerial feats by Violet Vendetta, with acclaimed emcee Jessica Dressler as Dirty Dorothy as Lola Beedo.
