Exes: A Horrific Cabaret

“I don’t believe in the glorification of murder. I do believe in the empowerment of women.”- Lady Gaga

A comedy cabaret about two friends who go too far seeking revenge after a breakup, and what they discover along the way… featuring hits by Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga and more, these two femme fatales will show you a bloody good time!

You left me crashing in a blazing fall
Crimson red paint on my lips
If a man talks shit, somebody’s gotta catch him out
If you’re not afraid to get a little crazy,
take a Louisville slugger and don’t regret one bit.
We’ll make it look oh so easy.
It’s our prerogative to have a little fun
So we’ll keep doing it over and over again…
