My sweetie writes about boats. I write about sex. Tonight we were fortunate to find an entertaining intersection between the two: Cabaret Red Light’s “Seven Deadly Seas” performed on the schooner Gazela, docked for the next few nights in Atlantic Basin, Red Hook, Brooklyn, sponsored by PortSide New York.
If you’re looking for something to do check them out. It’s an intimate setting – only about 80 seats per show – the second row is about as far away as you can get from the action!
The performers are fabulous and the writing is witty. The costumes are lovely, and the shedding of them is lovelier still. Gazela is a beautiful ship, and with the skyline of Lower Manhattan in the background it’s hard to imagine a more fitting setting for a show about debauchery and plunder.
Check them out. They’re only there for this one weekend. For more information or to by tickets:
