INDIANAPOLIS: “Songs to Offend Almost Everyone”

Saucy and sassy Sharon McNight appears this Friday and Saturday at the American Cabaret Theatre in downtown Indianapolis. Offbeat and even vulgar, Ms McNight is the epitome of the new style of female cabaret performer.

If you’re looking for a romantic dating idea in Indianapolis, think again. But if you’re ready to feel amused and queasy at the same time, this show is for you. The American Cabaret Theatre, considered one of the premier showcases of its genre in the United States, is located in the Connoisseur Room, just East of the famous Indianapolis Monument Circle and University Park.

Sharon McNight was nominated for the Tony Awards’ Best Leading Actress in a Musical and took home an Outstanding Broadway Debut Theatre World Award, presented to her by none other than Miss Cabaret herself, Carol Channing.

The singer-actress-comedienne has developed and presented many one-woman projects in the big leagues, including “Red Hot Mama,” which enjoyed a good run at the York Theatre, Off-Broadway. She holds a Masters of Arts from San Francisco State College in direction, lives in California and tours all over the nation.

Albums include Offensive, Too, Sophie Tucker Songbook, Now and Then and Songs to Offend Most Everyone. Song titles include “Let’s Talk Dirty to the Animals,” “Masochism Tango,” “Goodbye, Good Luck, Good Riddance,” “The Dumber They Come, the Better I Like ‘Em,” “Why Me, God?” and “Jesus Wears a Rolex.”
