The first real Drag Show in Florence! Hosted and organized by Florence’s very own Mirage together with weekly special guests, join us every Wednesday for some fun and frivolity. Watch as they reprise some of the most iconic pop songs from the last four or more decades, vote for your favorite Drag Diva in a grueling competition for the best in show, join in in games and other Wednesday night nonsense, and sing along all together in a finale that will close the show but leave you wanting an encore.
Wednesday nights in Florence will never be the same and we will never want them to be!
Full Up Cabaret is proud to present Kagliostro and Gabriele Mori in an evening of Magic and Music.
Kagliostro, a seasoned performer, with a unique style, brings to the stage the wonders of magic together with a measured dose of Tuscan humor. The success of his ‘one-man-show’ has allowed him to travel the world as an entertainer and collaborate with some of Italy’s most popular variety shows. Performer, actor, director, and author, we are thrilled to have Kagliostro with us for Thursday night cabaret at Full Up.
Gabriele’s long list of talents include; vocal coach, actor, dj, musician, songwriter, and singer; solo, as part of a trio, and as lead singer of beloved local band Ragazzi Scimmia. An act in himself, Gabriele will accompany us throughout the evening with swing and jazz classics.
There are no illusions that on Thursday’s Full Up Cabaret will entertain and awe as we transport you just for a short while into our world of whimsy and wonderment.
Sassy, saucy and sexy. A night out at Full Up Cabaret Club for Burlesque and live music promises to be all three! The Prohibition Era was renowned for boisterous parties, inebriation, energetic dancing and risqué entertainment, all in underground, secret bars. Having just lived through our very own version of “prohibition”, a little fun, a little “inebriation” and a little “risqué entertainment” is just what the doctor ordered. Embracing the comedic aspects of European burlesque and the scandalous side of American burlesque, Friday Night at Full Up will thrill and enthrall!
Burlesque has evolved over the last four centuries from its origin as theatrical satire, through the Victorian era when just the idea of ‘flesh’ was tease enough, to the Moulin Rouge and the flashy French shows girls of the Belle Epoque, to finally land in the United States which introduced the art of striptease. Based on these origins, Burlesque today can be categorized into three styles: cabaret, striptease, or traditional.
On our humble little stage in the center of Florence, our Burlesque performers combine elements from each of the categories creating their own unique style and performance. Whether their story is told through the elaborate costume (and how it is removed), through the selection of music, or in a more overtly theatrical way, each performance has something to say.
