Jack Singer Concert Hall

Named “One of the Top Performers of the Year” by The New Yorker, post-post-modern diva Meow Meow has been described as a rare combination of “devilishly funny” and “heavenly vocal cords.” Taking on everything from Brecht to Morrissey to Amanda Palmer to her own original compositions - Meow Meow always leaves room for the unexpected in her shows – in her music, her humour, even her theatrics. You know you’re in for a treat when The Telegraph says, “There is, in fact, nothing that this woman cannot do." Meow Meow’s style of “kamikaze cabaret” is a perfectly polished spectacle of the comically disastrous, where her stumbles and mishaps are all precisely choreographed for pure entertainment.
Join Arts Commons Presents and the BD&P World Stage series for a performance that will have you guessing, “What could possibly happen next?”
