“Liza Minnelli meets Sid Vicious”: Award-winning cabaret artist and actor Keith Ramsay delivers an electrifying, haunting and devastating cabaret memoir.
A glittering confection of classical queer mythology, cinematic glamour, madness, love and loss: “BrassLiquor” recounts the beauty, horror, hedonism and magic of a lost soul’s journey through the wastelands of the 21st Century- weaving its way through pop, chanson and punk-rock.
Louche, languid, joyful and bruising, join Keith as he makes love and war, steams, burns and dazzles desperately at oblivion’s brink. Part cabaret, part musical queer fable: a melancholic grand guignol served up by one of the finest cabaret renegades of his generation.
