The Menino Arts Center presents a sneak peek at a new musical comedy-drama - "Cocktails with Fascists," with book and songs by Didi Stewart (Girls’ Night Out, Didi Stewart and the Amplifiers.) A theatrical work for our strange American times, Cocktails With Fascists pokes serious fun at reanimated dictators, faux liberal media moguls, and a polarized nation teetering on the brink. Catchy tunes meet sharply pointed lyrics in an evening of (virtual) musical mayhem. This five-song presentation features a stellar cast of performers: Will McMillan, Leslie K. Sterling, Rene Pfister, and Didi Stewart. More info at https://www.cocktailswithfascists.com.
