SHAWN HITCHINS: Fire(crotch) Sale

Hitchins performs final cabaret as part of Buddies’ annual Queer Pride Festival.

Toronto ON – Shawn Hitchins gives one final, farewell cabaret performance, where everything must go and all songs are final. Hitchins unites with longtime friend, collaborator and musical director Mim Adams (Canary Mine, Full Voice™) for an evening filled with new laughs and refurbished material from his hit one-man shows.

A lineup of special guests will be on hand to help liquidate Hitchins’ musical assets. Rising comedic performer Andrya Duff (Headbangers, Queer Comedy Collective) opens the evening with her hilarious monologues. Indie-pop singer/songwriter Sue Newberry (Sue Newberry & The Law) presents selections from her forthcoming EP. Jonathan C.G. Bright (Homogenius), Chris Tsujiuchi (Sharron Matthews, Chris-terical Cabaret), and Matthew James Hines (That Boob Show) round-out the evening with jazz infused duets, and an ultra campy six-minute musical retelling of Steel Magnolias.

Shawn Hitchins has toured North America and the UK, from Puerto Vallarta to Provincetown to Edinburgh. He continues to host the popular Sing-a-long-a Grease and The Sound of Music screenings at TIFF. Hitchins is developing a brand new stand-up show, Ginger Nation, that will launch Fall 2012 and debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013. Hitchins and Adams will continue to write and perform as a musical comedy duo.
