**Exclusive mp3 demo recording of Kat Robichaud's new song "Misfit Cabaret" with a personal message from Kat is included in all packages!

I moved to San Francisco from Raleigh, North Carolina a little over a year ago. I cannot believe how this city has welcomed me with open arms, wrapped itself around me, and helped me grow as an artist. 

My love for musical theater comes from my dad, and my original music and stage performances have always nodded heavily towards theater. I was completely blown away when I discovered rock operas such as Tommy, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Hedwig and The Angry Inch. Since then I've wanted to combine my style of rock with theater.

For the first time ever I get to perform songs that I love including Darling Misfit originals and covers in a theater setting, and not just any theater. The Great Star Theater in historic Chinatown was built in 1925, where Bruce Lee's father sang Chinese opera and where Bruce Lee himself began to learn martial arts. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of SF's tenacious artistic community, it has been brought back to life. Misfit Cabaret is a saucy variety show centered around musical theater and rock and roll with a dynamic rotating cast that includes musical theater, burlesque, drag, circus, and vaudeville.

In addition to hosting and performing in Misfit Cabaret, I have the immense pleasure of curating these shows with the most thrilling performers in San Francisco and all over the world! We've had several successful performances in a smaller venue, which have given me the strength to keep performing. I broke down and started crying at the very end of our first show because I could feel the love and warmth radiating out from everyone in the room. It was acceptance in its purest form. Now we have the opportunity to perform this spectacular show in a proper theater where the acoustics are amazing and the stage is the perfect size to house everything magical we have in store. I love this show and I cannot wait to share it with you!

The money you contribute goes to creating a show that belongs in a beautiful, historically haunted theater in Chinatown. It will pay for the upfront costs of performing artists, technical directors, and advertising and promoting of the Misfit Cabaret brand and Kat Robichaud and The Darling Misfits

Stretch goals include professionally shot video of the show, audio downloads of the show, and much more!

Long term goals include establishing a successful continuous run of Misfit Cabaret at The Great Star Theater, taking Misfit Cabaret on tour, and developing an album based on original songs written by Kat Robichaud for Misfit Cabaret.

Thank you, my incredible Kickstarter backers! Your support of Kat Robichaud and The Darling Misfits has been a segue into discovering who I am as an artist. A big big thank you to Paul and Jordan Nathan of The Great Star Theater for this opportunity to create and share my very own Misfit Cabaret.
