C'est Duckie! is an interactive nightclub event where patrons are given "Duckie Dollars" upon entering the cabaret. Audience members then select the act of their choice from a menu, which a troupe member performs at, or in some cases, on their table. Patrons can select vaudeville, ventriloquism, balloon modeling, insult, broken down burlesque and more from their Duckie menus.
The C'est Duckie! cast imported from London features Marisa Carnesky, Joshua Sofaer, Kazuko Hohki and Miss High Leg Kick. Several New York artists will also join in for special performances, including Taylor Mac, Jessica Delfino, Dynasty Handbag and Peggy Shaw.
C'est Duckie! recommends its performance fare to audiences 18 and over. They also request that patrons respect a dress code of "swanky eveningwear" for performances.
Performances of C'est Duckie! begin Dec. 20 with an official opening scheduled for Dec. 23. The limited engagement runs through Jan. 19, 2008. Fridays and Saturdays feature special 10:30 PM performances.
C'est Duckie! will play the CSV Cultural Center, located at 107 Suffolk Street in Manhattan. Tickets are available at www.ps122.org or by calling (212) 352-3101.
