Bespoke, spontaneous, storytelling cabaret…
The last of a noble bacchanalian race of unicorns charged with preserving the storytelling tradition, The Unicorn, saunters into the room ready to weave a fiction teased from half-truths and unintentional emotional revelations. A story as unique as the storyteller, never to be repeated. And yours to indulge in.
Derek Flores, master improvisor and international comedy festival performer, will delight audiences with his saucy chatty character the Unicorn. Spinning stories to celebrate Valentine’s Day, the good, the bad, and the grotesque. It’s not all sweetness and light. Accompanied by Tokyo’s own, Chizue on the piano.
Tickets cost ¥3,000 each or ¥10,000 for four – all including one drink each. The show starts at 8.30pm but doors open at 7pm, so arrive early to nab a good seat!
All welcome….singles, couples or ‘it’s complicated’. Love doesn’t care, and neither does The Unicorn.
