Here’s a novel don’t-miss event scheduled for Friday, Sept. 10. It’s called “Kaua’i Cabaret … Come as You Are,” a wowza evening of song, dance, poetry slam, comedy, drag and drama that includes the cast of Rent!, Kaua’i Sings!, Love Tribe, Pink Pebbles Crew and more at Kaua’i Community College. If you missed Rent!, this is your chance to redeem yourself. Kaua’i Sings! is always, always awesome. Love Tribe – where would we be without Isa Maria and her commitment to growing and developing as a drummer with her troupe? Pink Pebbles Crew reminds us that the body is flexible and meant to be stretched, and they do that in their talented hip-hopping. The moving photo exhibit “Hawaii Family Portraits” that was on view in the One Stop building at KCC moves to the Performing Arts Center lobby for the evening. Kaua’i Cabaret is a fun fundraiser for PFLAG and Lambda Aloha.
