Every Misfit Cabaret exceeds expectations, and this one promises to be particularly great. Frontwoman, emcee, and all-around superb talent Kat Robichaud and her gang of merry misfits have crafted a Christmas spectacular that will take on your favorite holiday specials. With a live band (headed by Brendan Getzell, host of the Hotel Utah open mic), a drag queen (Carnie Asade), burlesque (Frankie Fictitious), a special musical guest (Kendra McKinley), aerials (Chewbacca — yes, Chewbacca), and gremlins, the night holds untold promises. Robichaud, as talented a songwriter as she is a singer, also writes and premieres two original songs for each show.

Dark, bawdy, slightly naughty, and always entertaining, the Misfit Cabaret is a taste of the San Francisco that many fear is gone. It is grit and glamour. It is not to be missed.

The event happens once per season in the Great Star Theatre, a re-opened gem located in the heart of Chinatown. (Don’t try to drive there, public transit is great at this spot but parking is not.) Usually a two-night happening, this one is extended to three weekends from Dec 15 – Dec 30.
