Cabaret Macabre

“Cabaret Macabre gleams with the precision that has become Happenstance’s hallmark … ghoulishly gratifying...” Washington City Paper

Happenstance Theater
October 24 – November 3

Happenstance Theater presents CABARET MACABRE. A perfect autumnal tradition, this witty Theatrical Collage is inspired by the illustrations of Edward Gorey, Victorian nightmares, musical histrionics, gothic romance, the perilous deep, calamitous excursions, and the dangers of croquet.

The Washington Post calls Happenstance Theater’s series of dark, comic vignettes “Wickedly funny…a Gorey illustration brought to life. It’s a feather that will tickle your fancy.”


Gwen Grastorf, Mark Jaster, Sabrina Mandell, 

Sarah Olmsted Thomas, Alex Vernon, and special guest artist Ellen Cherry
