Culture Club Presents: We Can’t Say “Gay,” But We Can Sing “Gay”

Special Event
Sat, Feb 24, 2024
Private Location

Cabaret meets opera in this subversive evening of music & comedy, commissioned by ICA Miami’s Culture Club.

Join longtime collaborators Pretty Lamé (tenor Joshua Sanders) & David Sytkowski (pianist) as they explore the boundaries of good taste—high brow, lowbrow & faux brows!

Pianist David Sytkowski is the Director of Music for Opera Workshop at Bard College. He appears frequently as a symphony pianist at venues such as Carnegie Hall & Jazz at Lincoln Center. Culture Club members will recall David accompanying Justin Vivian Bond when she performed for the Culture Club in March, 2022.

Joshua Sanders has performed with many opera companies, including the Metropolitan Opera, & made his Carnegie Hall debut in 2019. In addition to his opera career as a classical tenor, he performs in cabaret & drag as his alter ego, Pretty Lamé.

This event will take place at the private home of Jane Toll in Miami Beach.
