Jersey City a capella group Cabaret Sauvignon – singers Elena Zazanis, Alex Pflaster, Amy Elise and Amanda Levie – will perform the cabaret “The Mysterious A Capella Murder Mystery” this week at the Midtown International Theatre Festival.
In this reality-theatre tale, four female vocalists meet in fierce competition, surmount their backstage backstabs, form the a cappella group Cabaret Sauvignon, and allegedly murder their manager!
From their interview at Review Fix:
The Mysterious A Cappella Murder Cabaret was inspired by the desire to elevate what began as an a cappella “act” into a “real show!” We had talked about producing a variety show compiled of comedy, burlesque, music and sketch, but this concept morphed into a collaborative effort to actually write a musical comedy. We know it’s not Shakespeare, but we guarantee the audience a tantalizing journey, showcasing our tunes from the quirkiest to the campiest and unraveling the mystery of our manager’s murder.
