Innuendos, suppressed sexual feelings, shocking revelations and political humor abound as the women compete for best quiche, and cope with an unexpected agenda item: the dropping of an atom bomb on their fair city.
Starring Maureen Keiller, Georgia Lyman, Kelly McAndrew, Darlene Van Alystyne, Hannah Yelland

Doors open at 7pm and seating is on a first come first serve basis.General Admission: $40.00 VIP: $75.00**

8pm The Incomparable Suede!
Paramount @ The Crown & Anchor, 247 Commercial Street
The NY Times says her show is “A spectacular evening of song and style.” Boston Globe says “Wicked exciting!” None other than Bea Arthur shouted from Suede’s audience “You are *#%^ing to DIE for! Thank you for the most incredible night of my life in an audience!”
Suede tours nationally, regularly selling out famous rooms like San Francisco’s Rrazz Room, New York’s famous Birdland, playing the Kennedy Center and beyond. She’s also just back from playing one of many benefits she does all year – this time raising $45K in ONE NIGHT for a free clinic outside Washington, DC whose funding has been severely cut because they provide women’s health services (among all other family health practices)! She donated her DVD “Suede, Live at Scullers Jazz Club” for use by PBS during their fall fund-drive and it has been aired on 54 stations nationally, so far.

Critics have said she is like Adele meets Diana Krall meets Bette Midler – sassy, smooth and intoxicating. This week she’ll be with pianist Fred Boyle and Rich Hill on bass – and LOTS of new tunes. If you haven’t caught Suede in a while it’s definitely time to come back – and bring your friends. They’ll thank you for it!
