A Toast to Prohibition
Melanie Gall, internationally-acclaimed performer, comes to the Vancouver Fringe with her new historic musical, A Toast to Prohibition.
Celebrate the 101st anniversary of Prohibition with flappers, gin fizz and a speakeasy cabaret. Join Gladys in her secret gin joint The Tipsy Sparrow, as she tells the story of when intoxicating liquor was forbidden and lawlessness ruled the day. From secret cellars and doctor-prescribed alcohol to a teetotaller attacking saloons with a hatchet…there’s a song about it! Featuring forgotten 1920s hits: ‘Lips That Touch Liquor Shall Never Touch Mine’ and ‘Everybody Wants A Key To My Cellar.’
