Revel tonight (Saturday, June 27) at the Yale Summer Cabaret



I’m late in alerting you to this, though I did get something about it into the Hartford Courant/CTnow a couple weeks back.

Having delivered their play-within-a-play-within-“a-play-fitted” reconfiguration of A Midsummer Night’s Dream earlier this month, before the first day of summer even arrived, the Yale Summer Cabaret is marking midsummer prematurely again with a fundrasing happening TONIGHT (June 27) titled Moonlight Revels, the party transforms the whole building in which the Cabaret operates into a “three-story art installation” including an “enchanted forest” populated with “wild and magical creatures.” There will be musical performances by company members, other live acts, dancing, prizes and, as Shakespeare might’ve said, more.

The revels begin at 8 p.m. and go on into the early morning hours. Door prizes will be presented at 10:30 p.m. The dance party aspect begins at 10:45 p.m. in the regular Cabaret basement theater space.

Yale Summer Cabaret, like the Yale Cabaret is for the rest of the year, is located at 217 Park St., New Haven. (203) 432-1566. Info here.

(The choice of artwork right here is mine: a favorite depiction of Titania and Oberon by one of the great Victorian depicter of fairies, Arthur Rackham.)
