An ambitious private investigator.
A jealous client with a vengeful agenda.
A new show in town with circus, live music, and a line out the door.
Can Dick Johnson dig up the dirt on Cabaret Suave and send them packing? Or will these fierce and
fabulous personalities live to dazzle another day?
Step inside this suave establishment and be transported back in time in a fresh, flirty, yet family friendly take on circus cabaret. A story told by a strong LGBT+ cast, and one token straight white man, Cab Suave brings you reimagined film noir with a twist - a show packed with all the circus you could need, a script full of zingers, and a whole lot of charm.
As they say at Cabaret Suave - "A little party never hurt nobody!
