The Broadway Lounge is very proud to present a very special cabaret performance on January 21st and 22nd - Carmen McCarthy: Self Stigma Sucks! Seating begins at 6p and the show starts at 7:30p each night. Cost is $15 plus a required 2 item minimum purchase per person (with at least 1 food item). Admissions on sale now!

Mental health is something everyone deals with at some point, whether they admit it or not. But the stigma of getting help to deal with this little thing called life is still surprisingly stigmatized. WTF.

Carmen uses humor and storytelling with music to share her journey and anonymous stories of others to help normalize getting the help we all need at various points in our lives. Will this show change things overnight? Probably not. Will get people thinking and start conversations? Hells yes. 

Carmen McCarthy is known for her versatility with musical styles and powerful performances. She has been singing professionally for over 25 years, performing as a member of the Chicago Symphony Chorus, countless musical theatre productions, a soloist with the Peoria Symphony Orchestra with Ashley Brown (Broadway’s original Mary Poppins), a featured performer in several of Bart Shatto’s cabarets, and as the female vocalist for JC and The Redemption, a local soul/funk/stax band. Her favorite audience though will always be her five nephews.

This show, subject matter, and at times language is intended for adults. Approximate run time is 75 minutes.
