The following is a press release:
Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) and OZ Arts Nashville present a one-night-only cabaret performance by international song-siren and comedienne extraordinaire, Meow Meow, on June 4 at the historic War Memorial Auditorium.
Single tickets for Meow Meow start at $35 and go on sale on Tuesday, Dec. 7, at 10 a.m. at TPAC.org, by phone at 615-782-4040 and in person at the TPAC Box Office, 505 Deaderick St., in downtown Nashville. For groups of 10 or more, call 615-782-4060.
Named one of the “Top Performers of the Year” by The New Yorker, the Australian-born Meow Meow seduces audiences with her spellbinding vocal talents and uproarious comic absurdity — then breaks their hearts with searing emotional depth. From Piazzolla tangos, German stage songs and sultry cabaret numbers to alt rock interpretations of Radiohead and Patty Griffin, audiences can expect to hear a century-spanning repertoire with off-beat jokes, incisive wit and polished character.
“TPAC values the collaboration with OZ Arts Nashville to host Meow Meow’s debut cabaret performance in Music City,” says Jennifer Turner, TPAC President and CEO. “Through this partnership, we have the ability to bring this immensely talented, internationally known artist to Nashville for a unique experience that audiences will never forget.”
The spectacular, crowd-surfing empress embodies a new kind of 21st century cabaret with plenty of sensational singing, witty banter and sass for days. With David Bowie and Pina Bausch as curators of her work, Meow Meow is an award-winning phenomenon who has dazzled audiences from Shanghai to the dives of Berlin, on London’s glittering West End to the Kennedy Center. She has performed with internationally acclaimed orchestras like the London Philharmonic and the Berlin Philharmonic, and she collaborated closely with the iconic band Pink Martini.
“We are thrilled to partner with TPAC to bring the eccentric talents of Meow Meow to such an iconic Nashville venue,” said Mark Murphy, OZ Arts Executive and Artistic Director. “Her incredible mix of awe-inspiring vocals, unstoppable wit and fearless talent will deliver a one-of-a-kind night out and set a new bar for cabaret in Nashville.”
