This unusual and exciting cabaret-style show brings together another group of hugely talented women from Toronto that include Lorraine Segato, Colleen Allen, Shawnee Talbot, Amani, Miku Graham and Michelle Willis. These wonderful performers will in turn celebrate the music and performances of such iconic women trailblazers as Etta James, Ida Cox, Annie Lennox, Janis Joplin and more. Every Cabaret offers a new, passionate experience that showcases a diverse group of local female performers who choose iconic songs that reflect the cabaret’s ever-changing theme. This cabaret’s theme celebrates International Women’s Day, with a reflection of material deemed Sassy, Saucy & Uppity. Included along with the music are elements of spoken word, and theatrical monologue. It will be a raucous, irreverent, and thrilling evening. Segato is currently fulfilling a two-year term as Regent Park’s first honorary Artist-In-Residence, which is sponsored by The Daniels Corporation. Part of her mandate involves finding new ways to enrich, celebrate and draw attention to the developing neighbourhood of Regent Park, while curating cultural activities and events that further the envisioning of an international caliber artist residency program.
