Black Benatar’s Black Magic Cabaret (BBBMC) is an epic theater spectacle that fuses elements of circus, magic, and drag performance to bring audiences on a journey through race and cultural allyship in the U.S. As the Ringleader of the ensemble’s circus, Black Benatar commands the stage through a series of comedic interlude acts instigated by her companion, Wyatt Allai. In between these interludes, the rest of the circus showcases queer performers rooted in physicality and culture, each one telling a different story of being black, or other, in the U.S. right now.
