Seattle Cabaret Festival Returns to The Triple Door

Seattle Cabaret Festival 2023 returns to The Triple Door with a magnificent opening night showcase hosted by Arnaldo! Drag Chanteuse (“Silky gowns and a silken voice” – City Arts) and featuring Weimar Berlin-inspired cabaret rock band The Love Markets (“Irresistible… A deliciously dark carnival” – Seattle Magazine).

The night’s lineup also spotlights the lush harmonies and jive rhythms of the Sirens of Swing; wicked a cappella hijinks from Bodacious Ladyhood; jazz-age Paris creations from avant-garde duo Siren + Sinewave; classics from “crooner” Art Anderson, Piaf storyteller Faye B Summers, and BroadwayWorld award-winner Judy Ann Moulton; and a wild ride on the 88s with the ever-funky John Engerman.

This star-studded opening night kicks off a four-week festival presenting 17 artist acts, paired in unique combinations over 9 nights and 17 showtimes. The one-night-only opening event at the Triple Door is the perfect chance to see performances from some of the festival’s most high-powered acts, presented with maximum glamour by host Arnaldo! and anchored by special guest artists The Love Markets.
