Cabaret performer Kate Dawson at Birdland


THE A**HOLE IN MY HEAD is Kate Dawson’s fresh reinvention of cabaret, and makes her worst enemy (herself), into a hilarious, unseen, other character. Kate and the A**hole In Her Head battle it out through song and banter in a hilarious show filled with Broadway songs and witty dialogue. This is a one night only encore performance of a show that was listed by David Noh in the Gay City News as one of the Top Ten best live performances of 2009.

Monday, August 30th @ 7PM, Birdland, 315 W. 44th, New York City

Kate Dawson played Emily for three seasons in A Christmas Carol (at Madison Square Garden), sharing the stage with several Scrooge’s over the years, including Roddy McDowall, Hal Linden, Frank Langella and Tim Curry.
