US Election Night Cabaret

An eclectic and intimate evening of performance and conversation in anticipation of the American election results, streamed live from The Lyceum stage to your home.

Hosted by Artistic Director David Greig, and Florida-born award-winning playwright and performer Apphia Campbell, this evening of spoken word, song, play excerpts and socially-distant discussion will take place on The Lyceum’s stage, which has been extended out across the entire of the stalls to allow for safely spaced cabaret-style seating.

Special guests include award-winning comedian and presenter Desiree Burch, comedian and singer Sooz Kempner, songwriter and artist Gordon McIntyre of Ballboy, Mezzo-Soprano Andrea Baker and many more exciting special guests! It will be a night to come together on the eve of America’s seismic electoral decision to ask what has become of our American Dreams.

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, Karine Polwart will sadly be unable to join us at tonight's show, but we’re delighted to announce a new addition to the lineup on Karine’s recommendation, musician Cera Impala.
