PFAC presents A Night of Cabaret with special guest Nicole Madison
Thursday, February 21st
7 pm
The Lovatt Room
Free

The Pinedale Fine Arts Council (PFAC) is proud to present A Night of Cabaret with special guest Nicole Madison on Thursday, February 21st at 7 pm in the Lovatt Room. The show is free and wine and appetizers will be served.

What is love? What is loving? The answer to these and related questions will be explored when Jackson Hole’s Nicole Madison will premiere her one-woman Cabaret on the subject of love. Nicole delivers a narrative that explores relationships and loving from a deeply personal point of view. Although personal and intimate, it is a universal message tied together with a carefully curated selection of songs written by such luminaries as Cole Porter, Frank Loesser, and Bob Dylan. Nicole will be joined by Jackson-based pianist Pam Drews Phillips who will accompany her through the evening of cabaret, which will run 45 minutes. Cabaret Night is free to the public and PFAC will be providing wine and appetizers.
