C'est Duckie!

“C’est delightful, C’est divine, C’est trés magnifique!”
The Guardian

“Delicious bite sized burlesque”
Time Out London

The perfect show and nightclub for a swanky holiday night out!
Patrons please note: A dress code of suitably swanky evening wear is encouraged!

Performance Space 122 imports London-based performance troupe Duckie and their smash hit, C’est Duckie!, the Olivier award-winning, interactive nightclub performance experience, for a wild and absolutely outrageous alternative to traditional holiday fare.

Following sold-out seasons in London, Sydney, Berlin, and Tokyo, C’est Duckie!, “London’s Table Top Christmas Performance Palais,” serves up a menu of daring, delectable and devious entertainments that result in tailor-made, table-top shows from a top class talent troupe of soubrettes, hoofers, and starlets from the London performance scene as well as special guest artists from New York City including: Taylor Mac, Jessica Delfino, the Wau Wau Sisters, and Dynasty Handbag!

Armed with Duckie dollars upon entering, guests at each table can order from a show menu of craftily titled “acts” at will. Shows include a variety of theatrical fare – vaudeville, ventriloquism, balloon modelling, broken down burlesque – with over 30 kunst-cabaret turns from the suggestive to the transgressive to the downright offensive.

Pitching popular commercial entertainment against contemporary performance provocation, Duckie prove that Performance Art is the new table dancing in this all-singing, all-dancing shameless crowd-pleaser. At last, whether they’ve been naughty or nice, New Yorkers can experience this swanky showbiz spectacular for themselves.

Patrons please note a dress code of swanky evening wear is requested.
