DECLASSIFIED:
** CABARET OF SINS **

Hear Pink Martini's sensational Storm Large sing some sin, then enjoy a carnivalesque after-party with live band karaoke and more in this season's grand DECLASSIFIED finale.

SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES!
Enter a world of decadence and debauchery
as Storm sings Kurt Weill's elegantly haunting
The Seven Deadly Sins with gentlemen crooners Hudson Shad,
plus a sweet & sultry mix of cabaret songs.
Join dashing young maestro James Gaffigan and the NSO
for a devilishly divine time in the Concert Hall--
just repent your ways by morning light.

DARE TO DRINK OUR POTENT POTIONS
Roll up to our bars anytime, grab a drink
in a souvenir cup, and bring it into the show.

THE PARTY STARTS EARLY--AND STAYS UP LATE
Starting at 8 p.m., enjoy a pre-concert circus sideshow performance by Carnivalesque Roadshow complete with carnival games, food, a photo booth, a fortune teller, and more. The festivities pick right back up after the concert and continue until midnight with live band karaoke with HariKaraoke!

Performance timing: 60-75 minutes with no intermission
