Gritty New York atmosphere in sensational nightclub
Three years ago he was probably the most widely discussed performer at Noorderzon: Paul Soileau, one of the masterminds of American theatre collective Shaboom! At the time he took to the stage as his extravagant punk alter ego Christeene – a cross between Marilyn Manson and Alice Cooper. This edition the gritty, sinful, gay, erotic, satirical slapstick is returning in the guise of a nightclub that would well suit downtown New York or underground Berlin. This time round Soileau will be accompanied by his compatriots Silky Shoemaker and Lex Vaughn. Deeply frustrated by their country and with their blood boiling, the gentlemen make mincemeat of the United States and Americans. However, don’t expect your everyday takedown of Donald Trump. Despite the outlandish, intentionally unpolished theatrical camp, the show is much more subtle than simple slagging. Experience this nocturnal sensation, before having to head for Broadway to see it.

“Shaboom! is a curator’s delight—one that keeps the house packed, and the audience in a frenzy of giggles and gasps. It’s the kind of has-to-be-seen-to-be-believed showcase that will have you telling friends (and enemies)...You've got to see this!"

- Curran Nault, Artistic Director OUTsider Festival
