REHEARSAL HOME STRETCH…into NYC DOLLS WEEK! NYC Patron gatherings and MORE
HELLO my loves!!!!!
Before I barrel in…THANK YOU for all the incredible lyric-paint last night. JESUS CHRIST. I got a ton of private messages as well, and a handful of texts – even from family members. When you ask…well, I wrote a fuckin book about that, didn’t I.
Please know I’m reading everything slowly. I am turning a lot of it into art.
I talked about the process of crowdsourcing lyrics and details on instragram at the piano this morning:
Goddamn there’s a lot going on. I’m writing and arranging and rehearsing like MAD with Brian out here in the woods:
This rest of this post is MOSTLY for the community who are coming to see The Dresden Dolls at our NYC residency this week – or for New Yorkers in general who wanna connect with the other patrons – but it’s for any and everybody, so read on!!!!

Alan Cumming started this beautiful little club after his dressing room at “Cabaret” became overstuffed with people 🙂
I am 99% sure I’ll make it over for at least a song or two…but YOU SHOULD ALL GO SUPPORT my bestie LANCE HORNE and his queer af musical theater crew!!!
This is his usual “Mondays in the Club” piano sing-along / pick-a-song / piano karoake and it’s always a RAGER!!!!

SOME INFO ABOUT THE TICKETS!!: We’re charging a pretty basic entry fee just to cover the cost of renting the space – but alongside these general tickets, we’re trying out a super exciting thing this time…. we have SPONSOR and SPONSEE tickets available.
If you’re well off and want to help others in the community, you can pick up a SPONSOR ticket for a little extra money. This extra money will then go towards offering cut-price SPONSEE tickets, for those of you who are struggling a little more, and can’t make the full price. There’s no proof or strict guidelines around who can buy the reduced-price sponsee ticket, it’s working entirely on an honor system. If you need the cheaper ticket, it’s there for you.
So, there are FOUR ticket types available:
GENERAL TICKETS – $10
SUPPORTER TICKETS – $15
SPONSOR – $20
SPONSEE – $5
PASSWORDED TICKET LINK:
password for tickets is AFPpatrons (case sensitive!)
