Directed By Prolific Choreographer Dreya Weber and Featuring Acclaimed Chicago Favorites Frank Ferrante and LiV Warfield, Luminaire Opens Tonight at Cabaret ZaZou on Randolph
Tonight ChiIL Mama will be ChiILin' in one the most unique Chicago theatrical spaces, a vintage Spiegeltent on the 14th floor of the Cambria Hotel in the heart of Chicago’s Theatre District. This will be our 3rd visit to this space and we can't wait to see what's next for Randolph Entertainment LLC, producer of the fan favorite Teatro ZinZanni Chicago. We're lifelong lovers of all things circus and cabaret so we're beyond excited to be a part of the opening night festivities for CABARET ZAZOU’s premiere production, Luminaire. The new, groundbreaking, immersive variety dinner show is making its worldwide debut. Luminaire is directed by Dreya Weber, and stars critically acclaimed performers Frank Ferrante and LiV Warfield as they lead an international cast of exceptional entertainers. Sassy, sexy, and sultry, Luminaire is designed to dazzle and delight audiences with stunning cirque acts, interactive comedy, captivating vocalists, and a stellar band, complimented by a delicious multi-course meal.
Luminaire stars Frank Ferrante, an award-winning actor, comedian, and director best known for his interactive stage comedy, including The Caesar in Teatro ZinZanni, which earned him a Chicago Tribune nod as a top ten performer of the year in 2019, and his PBS national television program Frank Ferrante’s Groucho. The production also stars singer, songwriter, and producer LiV Warfield. Her achievements include a critically acclaimed hit solo album - The Unexpected, a Soul Train Music Award for Best Contemporary Jazz Performance, and performing as part of Prince’s New Power Generation. Liv Warfield has toured with some of music’s biggest names, bringing her unique voice and style to audiences around the world. Luminaire is directed by Dreya Weber, whose aerial design and choreography credits include Magic Mike Live in addition to aerials for Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Britney Spears, Rihanna, Madonna, Cher, Michael Jackson, Christina Aguilera, Kylie Minogue, and Pink’s 2010 Grammy Awards performance of “Glitter in the Air”. Dreya brings in her unique death-defying grace to dazzle CABARET ZAZOU audiences.
Luminaire also features an extraordinary cast of performers including Broadway star and Grammy nominee James Harkness from New York City, master juggler Viktor Kee from the Ukraine, thrilling contortionist Ulzii Mergen from Mongolia, and the highly acclaimed Hand to Trapeze Trio Trio Vertex from England. On the bandstand is music director Chuck Webb (bass), Jon Negus (woodwinds), Jose Martinez (drums), and new to the ensemble this fall are Theodis Rodgers (piano) and Phil Seed (guitar).
