Additional time info:

2021's Gumdrops & The Funny Uncle- A Cabaret has landed from its year-long sleigh ride in the sky at Club Cafe for two cabaret style shows: December 10 & 17, 2021  at 7pm.

Peter DiMuro/Public Displays of Motion brings their alternative-family, un-Nutcracker collection of holiday stories and dances to the stage, with songs from the cabaret world and the season. Brian Patton is musical director. Guest stars will include Public Displays of Motion core collaborator Michael Winward, and song stylists - both LGBTQ+ and Straight Allies!  - will be announced in the days leading up to performance (Just like an Advent calendar!)

The original Gumdrops & The Funny Uncle debuted in 2002, as performance monologue with dances, combining Peter DiMuro's experiences playing the Uncle in the Boston Ballet's Nutcracker, and the stories dealing with his sister's struggles through a decade of red-tape and Mexican/US politics while trying to adopt her daughter. In both stories he becomes a different kind of Funny Uncle. The work has been performed in multiple variations across the country.

Tix sales and donations for these shows will benefit Public Displays of Motion's Stones to Rainbows/Gay to Queer Lives Project, an installation and performance project that holds the a 8 decade span of past and current histories of LGBTQ+ community members in dialogue intergenerationally and intersectionally. The work has been supported by NEFA's Creative City grant, The Boston Foundation's LAB grant, the Equality Fund, Somerville Arts Council, Cambridge Arts, The Dance Complex and individual donors- like you!
