CABARET MAGIQUE FINAL EDITION!
WEDNESDAY APRIL 7, 2004 @ THE BOY'S ROOM

#9 AVENUE A AT FIRST STREET NYC
DOORS 10:30 PM TILL 3 AM, $5 all night

CABARET MAGIQUE is the Parisian Cabaret series from CHI CHI VALENTI and JOHNNY DYNELL, the Nightlife Utopians behind JACKIE 60, MOTHER and CLICK + DRAG. For fifteen months, the Wednesday clubhouse featured over a hundred performers including classic Weimar Cabaret, Old and New School drag, fetish go-go, Incoherent spoken word, burlesque, musical numbers on theremin, violin and xylophone and even a surprise rendition of "Wheels on Fire" by DEBBIE HARRY.

To make way for the JACKIE FACTORY'S Really Big Shows this Spring and Summer - THE BETTIE BALL, NOTS 14 et al) the APRIL 7 edition of Magique will be the last in its current weekly form. We've enjoyed bringing you this performance laboratory both at CHEZ ES SAADA, where it began, and at TAPIS ROUGE, where it found a new home. As we say "adieu", big thanks to Producer at Large MICHAEL JAMES O'BRIEN, our loyal Magique audience and superb performers, and the staff and management of TAPIS ROUGE (now BOY'S ROOM.) It's been Magique!

We'll be ending on a high note, with Blonde Goddess WORLD FAMOUS BOB as she celebrates the birthdays of herself and "The Twins." The pioneering Burlesque diva and performance artist will be accepting accolades, flowers, kisses and gifts from a comfortable throne, and there will be beaucoups de shows in her honor, including a 1:30 number by Divine Diva of Burlesque DIRTY MARTINI. Dirty's a world-travellin' icon who simply MUST outdo herself, show after show. She's just back from Paris and promises something very special in honor of BOB.

Earlier at 12:30 is the return of one of Magique's most exciting new performers - British transplant GLENN WEBB aka THE ALLIGATOR BOY. "An Alligator Boy Is Born" is an avant pop performance piece "based on the autobiography of any queer life, with special guest JZ Bich. This talented newcomer also joins the cast of "Wonderland" this weekend (see below.)
