Natural Awakenings Charlotte


A Concert Reading of a New Musical

THE FLIRT BAR is a gritty, Southern, country-rock musical comedy about women who turn a former Strip Club into "The Flirt Bar," a place where women can go to be flirted with. It’s about women falling in love, some with other women, some not.

THE FLIRT BAR started as a play written by Susan Lambert Hatem with music, but evolved into a full-blown musical using songs by the fabulous Michelle Malone and Grammy-award winning Amy Ray (from the Indigo Girls). It is produced by Susan Lambert Hatem of 134 West, Anne Lambert of Charlotte’s Off-Broadway, and Zach Tarlton of QC Concerts.

This will be a "concert reading" - meaning the cast will be seated on the stage while reading/singing the play.

When Bible Belt wife, Honey B. Dews loses everything in the divorce from her cheating husband except a Strip Club he owned, she intends to burn it down or sell it to pay off crushing IRS debt. Instead her book club friends convince Honey to turn the Strip Club into THE FLIRT BAR, where women can go to drink and be flirted with, because what women REALLY want is to be truly seen and admired.

It’s like Once meets Kinky Boots, but with less boots and more lesbians.

TWO SHOWS ONLY: Saturday, Dec. 17 at 7pm and Sunday, Dec. 18 at 3pm.
