PEI Queer Events Company Lacuna Presents Cabaret Show Let’s Try This Again at The Guild

CHARLOTTETOWN, PEI — P.E.I. will get a taste of New York nightlife with a new show at The Guild in Charlottetown presented by gay-centric events company Lacuna.

Hot off the heels of a successful cabaret run through some of New York’s most iconic nightspots, the Let’s Try This Again cabaret show will stop at The Guild for one night on August 1.

Actor and singer Andrew Morrisey and pianist and composer Andrew Boudreau created the show with a blend of city sophistication and East Coast charm.

“After two long years away, it’s almost surreal to be back in Charlottetown,” Morrisey said in a statement.

“This show reflects both a deeply personal journey and our collective experience. I look forward to sharing it with you.

The 75-minute performance explores themes of love, queer identity, and relearning how to navigate social interaction in a world emerging from a global pandemic.

Production manager Margot Bégin said the cabaret format is the perfect medium for the intimate exploration of what it means to come out of the pandemic experience.

“It taps into our shared experience of loss and isolation while still making room for those unexpected moments of self-discovery and joy,” Bégin said.

Tickets are available for purchase at The Guild box office or online.
