Blood, Sweat and Mouseketears at The Cabaret in South Beach

Blood, Sweat and Mouseketears at The Cabaret in South BeachFriday, June 26, 8pm –  The Cabaret, 233 12th St, Miami Beach

Former Mouseketeer, Lindsey Alley may not be as famous as other Mickey Mouse Club members like Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake or Christina Aquilera, but she has something none of her former childhood co-stars do… a hilarious new cabaret show entitled “Blood, Sweat and Mouseketears.” Alley turns raw honesty into her most powerful comedic tool while her enchanted Disney-inspired vocals transports audience members to memories of childhood and sheer joy.

In this musical comedy, Alley invokes heartfelt laughter with stories of Mouseketeer tales and beyond. “Blood, Sweat and Mouseketears” has engaged audiences at colleges and cabarets all over the country, including The Laurie Beechman Theatre in New York City, The Blue Moon in Rehoboth Beach, The Mad Cow Theatre in Orlando and The Comedy Store in Los Angeles.

Alley recently completed the pre-Broadway production of First Wives Club with idol and legend Faith Prince. Though she has embraced her new addiction to Instagram, Alley continues to generate more real life amusing adventures to share with audiences all over the world. This is a chance to see a legend in the making, or at least a hilarious night of awkward situations and revealing moments set to music.

Guests were delighted with Alley’s clever wit, songstress voice and musical tribute to marriage equality. “My happily ever after is right now,” said Alley. Embracing her gay followers and relating to the sea of performers in front of her, Alley rehashes hilarious accounts of online dating, her cabaret tour and life as a Mouseketeer.

While Lindsey sang about the lure of handsome men and performed favorite Disney classics, the audience filled the room with laughter, applause and even gasps. One attendee said, “I laughed a lot and cried a little.” Another fan was inspired by her rendition of a Little Mermaid song, “I wanted to sing along the whole time.” As Alley carried the crowd out of the sea, people were happy to be, part of her world.

The transformational evening at The Cabaret was hosted by Local producer and collaborator David Sexton, in collaboration with renowned musical director Rick Leonard.
