Signature Theatre (4200 Campbell Ave., Arlington, Va.) hosts “Dressed Up: A Class Conscious Cabaret” starring gay singer/actor Will Gartshore as part of its “Sizzlin’ Summer Cabaret” series on Thursday at 8 p.m. and Friday (Aug. 16 )at 7 p.m.
Gartshore had a successful Broadway and off-Broadway career in New York during the ‘90s, but has also thrived in Washington after moving here in 2002. Performances in Signature Theater’s “Urinetown” (2005) and Roundhouse’s “A Year with Frog and Toad” have earned him critical acclaim and prestige in D.C.
Gartshore has since become a full-time lobbyist for the World Wildlife Fund, but still performs occasionally. “Dressed Up” will feature classic tunes by Gershwin, Sondheim and The Beatles, accompanied by pianist Christopher Wingert.
Admission is $24-31.15 for both nights. For more details and to purchase tickets, visit signature-theatre.org.
