Déjà Vu, También

Yes, it's Deja Vu all over again as Monolog Cabin, emcee Robert Mac and special musical guest Al Perry present the best of the best: five monologues by many of the writers/performers who have come to define Monolog Cabin (see article), as well as a special guest monologue by Beth Lapides of Los Angeles's Un-Cabaret.

But it's election season and we need your help: Please vote for the monologues you'd most like to see performed in our 7 p.m. Saturday November 11th show at Club Congress.

(And voting saves you a dollar at the door! Just add your email address below to our mailing list. You'll save a buck off the $7 admission and be kept informed of future Monolog Cabin shows.)

Monologues by Charlotte Lowe/Bailey:

Leap and Fall

The truer than true story of a high school failure scaling the heights of popularity through modern dance. Will she make it, folks? Be there when she recreates the dance that changed her life forever.

True Grit

The story of a woman who against all odds marries, well, a madman. And yes!--he's a Roman Catholic priest. Nothing deters her from her mission to ignore reason!

Wear Earplugs At The Deathbed or The Downside Of Promises To The Dying

Who was I to deny the wishes of my mother to be laid to rest with her long-lost mother? The problem is her mother really is lost. Hear the wacky adventures of a good daughter who should have had her head examined.

Monologues by Faitha Lowe-Bailey:

Baby With The Holy Card

What happens to the unwilling bystanders in substandard marriages? Vote for this monologue to find out!

Don't Stand So Close To Me

Girl meets Teacher.

Crown Heights

In which our heroine moves to New York and meets a dog.

Monologues by Steve Barancik:

Breakfast Food For Thought

Being the story in which the iconic naval legend, Cap'n Crunch, rescues our hero from a lifetime of telemarketing and dating retards.

Teaching The Young

On the particular perils of the comically inclined dating the humourously challenged.

It may take a village to raise a child, but God help the child who's raised by a tennis club.

Monologues by Margo Taylor: 

Switched at Birth  

True story of a woman's search for an ethnic background she could be proud of...rather than the one she was born with

Bringing up Baby  

Our favorite teacher is back with a modest proposal...leave your sperm and eggs where they belong!   

Monologues by Sean Murphy

Knock, Knock, Knockin’ on Heather’s Door

In which our teen hero tromps through the neighborhood dressed as his favorite rock-star on one last Halloween mission only to find the path lined with candy, nipples, and humiliation.

Career Opportunities

In which a ten-year-old sets out to make his first million (or at least enough for a pet chimp) and instead learns that the hellish working world can sometimes have varicose veins and wine on its breath.

32 Lbs.

In which our intrepid teen explorer and his two psychotic playmates stumble over an erotic treasure box that will radically alter their lives, or at least their bathroom breaks.
