NEXT EVENT

When we entertain...

Nobody Sleeps!

The Corpse Cabaret, a Macabre Evocative Theatrical show featuring comedy, music, song, dance, drama and magic performed by talented ghastly ghouls.

All accompanied by a MEAL TO DIE FOR!  A seven-course meal that is full of flavor yet light as an apparition!

Inspired, and believe it or not, directed by the return of Master Chef Auguste Escoffier. Dining with The Dead was never so delicious!

The performance and dinner is staged in Chicago's Historic Bronzeville neighborhood at the Haunting Parkway Ballroom.

The Corpse Cabaret where they rise...to dance!

Guests MUST be caught dead wearing Elegant Monster Costumes or Gothic Garb! Check out our Pinterest board for ideas!
