Running time: two hours (with one 20-minute intermission)
Don't miss this special night with The Love Markets as the critically acclaimed, Weimar Berlin-inspired cabaret band returns to ACT! Lift your glass to new songs of love, subversion, and revolution from the band Seattle Magazine calls "Irresistible… A deliciously dark carnival." The Bullitt Cabaret becomes a musical boudoir filled with absurdity, hilarity, heartbreak, and transcendence as The Love Markets draw you once again into the world of your dreams. A sold-out favorite since 2010, The Love Markets were last seen at ACT in 2013, celebrating the release of their album World Of Your Dreams in The Falls Theatre. Their motto: "We are all on the market; we are all damaged goods. Life is beautiful. The stakes are high. The future is still ours." All ages!
