Marimba Cabaret debuts at PortFringe: Maine’s fringe festival!

“What’s a marimba?” Like a xylophone, but bigger and more fabulous — just like Brian. See what happens when a classically-trained percussionist with a love of musical theater (and killer taste in shoes) puts on a show. Marimba Cabaret is an hour of songs and stories featuring musical theater favorites and pop covers reimagined for marimba, voice and percussion.

One-hour shows at Mechanics Hall:
SAT 6/17 @ 4:15pm
SUN 6/18 @ 6:00pm
WED 6/21 @ 6:00pm
THU 6/22 @ 6:00pm

Tickets available online or at the door!
