Broadway fanatics and cabaret addicts unite! Tony Award-winning star of stage and screen John Cameron Mitchell teams up with international cabaret powerhouse Amber Martin for Cassette Roulette, an irreverent and hilarious evening of songs and stories—all chosen by the hand of fate and the artists’ unpredictable game of “cassette roulette.” Backed by Justin Craig and the house band Tits of Clay, Mitchell and Martin perform music and scenes from their vastly entertaining repertoire—from Mitchell’s triumph Hedwig and the Angry Inch; theater hits Big River and The Secret Garden; his musical Anthem: Homunculus; and his lockdown album New American Dream. Highlights include a recent song co-penned with Hedwig collaborator Stephen Trask (their first in 20 years!) and an ode to Joe Exotic, the gay polygamist zoo owner immortalized in Netflix’s Tiger King, who Mitchell portrayed in a TV miniseries. “Ever the magnetic and dynamic performer, Mitchell held the crowd in the palm of his manicured hand the entire night” (DC Metro Arts).
