CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. — P.E.I. will get a taste of New York nightlife through a new show at The Guild in Charlottetown presented by queer-centred events company Lacuna.
Fresh off a successful cabaret run at some of New York’s most iconic nightspots, the cabaret show Let’s Try This Again will stop at The Guild for one night on Aug. 1.
Actor and vocalist Andrew Morrisey and pianist and composer Andrew Boudreau created the show with a blend of the city’s sophistication and East Coast charm.
“After two long years away, it feels almost surreal to be coming back to Charlottetown,” said Morrisey in a news release.
“This show is both a reflection of a deeply personal journey and our collective experience. I can’t wait to share it with you.”
The 75-minute performance explores themes of love, queer identity and re-learning how to navigate social interaction in a world emerging from a global pandemic.
Production director Margot Bégin said the cabaret format is the perfect medium for the intimate exploration of what it means to be emerging from the pandemic experience.
“It taps into our shared experience of loss and isolation while making room for those unexpected moments of self-discovery and joy,” said Bégin.
Tickets are available for purchase at The Guild box office or online.
