U.S. Premiere of La Soiree Begins July 18th-Aug. 5th

Riverfront Theater, Chicago’s newest entertainment destination, presents the highly-anticipated U.S. Premiere of the theatrical phenomenon La Soirée. The production runs Wednesday, July 18 – Sunday, August 5, 2012 at the new Riverfront Theater, located at 650 W. Chicago Avenue, just east of Halsted Street.

Winner of the 2012 London Cabaret Awards, La Soirée combines cabaret, new burlesque, circus sideshow and contemporary variety. The sexy, funny, dangerous world of La Soiree has enchanted audiences across the globe in Edinburgh, Paris, Sydney, Stockholm, Dublin, Montreal, New York, Adelaide and Blackpool. La Soiree’s internationally-acclaimed artists include stars from La Clique, the Olivier Award-winning show which ran at London’s Hippodrome for nine months. La Soiree is a dynamic collective of some of the most outrageous, hilarious, beautiful and downright bizarre acts you will ever see.

Producer Robert Butters comments, “The La Soirée reviews from around the world have been unanimous raves. We are excited to present this highly-anticipated, sexy and very bold production, which we know will entertain and thrill Chicago. Arriving direct from Montreal and London, La Soirée is an ideal burlesque/cabaret show for Chicago this summer—and a perfect match for the 22,000 square-foot Riverfront Theater tent. We are proud to be hosting this world-renowned company.”
