Why celebrate love when you can celebrate sadness instead? You know: that gaping hole that love can leave? This second-annual cabaret, hosted by Madame Bustiere (clown Pamela Chermansky of "Burning Bluebeard"), includes "original ukulele songs performed by Katy Collins (Sideshow Theatre’s 'Stupid F--king Bird') and Lindsey Noel Whiting ('Lookingglass Alice'), plus a Sad Story Contest. Contestants include: Kurt Chiang (co-artistic director of Neo-Futurists); Isaac Gomez (playwright and literary manager at Victory Gardens Theater); comedian Alex Kumin; and playwrights Brett Neveu, Anne Garcia Romero, Scott Barsotti, Calamity West and Tanya Palmer. Must be some prize for that winner. Yep. It's a bottle of “Two Buck Chuck.”
