Acclaimed choreographer Marilyn Klaus’s Cocktail Hour reinvents the glamour and excitement of classic American entertainment with a fresh blend of charismatic choreography, intoxicating live music and exquisite costume design.
Deemed a distinctive mix of “Hollywood glitz and New York polish” by The Huffington Post, this cinematic, pop-infused performing arts experience launches the Mai Tai, Martini, Manhattan and more off the menu and onto the stage.
It’s high-style fun for the whole family to enjoy!

Klaus, whose background ranges from vaudeville and show dancing to Isadora Duncan and classical ballet, has collaborated with Grammy-nominated company composer Stephen Gaboury for over 25 years.
Gaboury has worked with pop/rock icon Cyndi Lauper for more than a decade, and contributed as co-writer on selections in her hit
Broadway musical, Kinky Boots, which earned thirteen Tony nominations and six wins (including Best Original Score and Best Musical) in 2013.
Gaboury’s music has been heard in film, on television and on stage, and he has performed with many A-listers, including Patti Labelle, Suzanne Vega and Ute Lemper.
Led by Gaboury, The B-Twist Orchestra made its first appearance with Ballets with a Twist in December 2012 at Manhattan’s Beacon Theatre during Cyndi Lauper’s Home for the Holidays benefit concert. The band has since joinedthe company at venues throughout the New York Tri-State Area.
Catherine Zehr is the artistic force behind Cocktail Hour’s resplendentcostume design. Her ingenious creations, deemed “subtle and alluring” by The Huffington Post,evoke the origins and essence of each spirit with vivid colors and embellishments. Critics and audience members agree:
Cocktail Hour is an artistically seductive must-see.
The Huffington Post raves that Klaus is “blasting the boundaries between high art and entertainment,” while The New York Times
praises her as “witty and fantastic.” Ballets with a Twist has also caught the attention of The Wall Street Journal, New York City’s PIX11
Morning News, and WKYC-TV in Cleveland.
