Diversionary Theatre has announced the remaining line-up for it's 2012 'Diversionary Cabaret' series. After the wildly fun and successful test run, Diversionary Cabaret kicks into high gear with a great line-up of local and visiting musicians, stand-up comedians and limited run shows.
As previously announced, Broadway and television star Telly Leung, during his night off on October 8 from the world premiere of Allegiance at The Old Globe, shares his unique journey through the music that has inspired and molded him, "shuffling" through his personal "playlist" in an eclectic evening of songs and anecdotes.
Señor Phil's Casa Del HaHa is back on October 15 at 8PM to give you a dose of extreme silliness from San Diego's best stand up comedians and comic actors. Hosted by the one-and-only Señor Phil (or as some call him, Phil Johnson), each show is a new gut-busting experience.
Diversionary favorites Heather Paton [title of show] and Tony Houck (Next Fall,Harmony, Kansas and Pippin) have created a hilarious new show, Heather & Tony: We Might Be Cousins, October 19 at 8PM. Two local powerhouses take to the stage in a fun-filled evening of music and cocktails to find out if they really are cousins. As they journey through their past and trace their roots, they sing songs of the Broadway stage, classic rock and today's pop hits. The show is full of games, audience interaction, laughs and of course family!!
San Diego rock and soul band, Tori Roze and the Hot Mess, play Diversionary Cabaret on October 20 at 8pm. Five exceptional jazz-infused performers claw into your heart with the uncanny ability to transcend both gender and generational gaps with their spot-on numbers. Their performance is sure to leave you a sense of relative human connection and an experience that is absolutely unforgettable.
By popular demand, Scrooge in Rouge is coming back to Diversionary for a limited engagement on December 14-30. It marks the return of holiday entertainment with a quick-change, cross-dressing version of the Dickens classic where three actors play 23 roles.
