NOLA Series: Freakeasy

Freakeasy at Cafe Istanbul in New Orlean's Healing Center

Freakeasy was supposed to be two shows. The first one started really late so they just had 3 acts then a really long intermission, then the second act was essentially the second show. The acts were good, when they were good. When they weren't good, they were very flat. 

The MC was from Portland and wasn't my cup of tea. I"ll leave it at that. The show had some racy-ness, which I can really get into if it's done well, but the one act I saw that was racy was just poorly staged and made no sense. 

The more traditional cabaret acts featuring hooping and aerial silks were really impressive, as shown in the pics. And Fantasy's quirky queerness was endearingly freaky.
