This October, the new LGBT and feminist theater group The Lilac Players held its second fundraiser cabaret, titled "Scared Queer: Get Out! the Vote". The concert featured a delightful mix of spooky and political songs. In addition to photographing this cabaret, I had the opportunity to music direct as well!
One of the highlights of the concert was a rendition of "Dangerous Game" from Jekyll & Hyde sung by Sara DeLong and Meghan Jolliffe. These two sopranos delivered a delightfully creepy rendition of the song, fitting for the theme of the day.
"Ya Got Trouble" from The Music Man as sung by Andrea Humez was also a standout performance of the night.
Below, Kim Dauber sings "The Vigil" from Snoopy! The Musical. Wyn Brown delightfully steps in as Snoopy. In this song, Linus has been waiting and waiting in the pumpkin patch for the Great Pumpkin to arrive. Even Snoopy is too embarrassed to associate with him.
A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder was well featured, with two songs performed during the show. Here, the whole group sings "Why are all the D'Ysquith's Dying?".

If you're excited to hear more music by awesome queer folks, check out Quorum Boston's "Relentlessly Queer" concert, which is happening twice this week. The dates are Monday, December 10th and Thursday, December 13th. The concert features compositions by 13 LGBT+ composers. I'll be going on the 13th!
