Spend a mysterious, sexy and haunting evening with the departed as they journey between this world and the next. Sip a free cocktail as darkness falls and three lost (singing) souls appear through the mists of Laurel Hill Cemetery for a witty, toe-tapping, spine-tingling good time.


Read Citypaper's rave review from the 2012 incarnation:

Depending on your temperament, the prospect of spending an evening in a graveyard either sounds like a ball or fills you with complete and utter dread. Let's be real, though: Free drinks plus cabaret plus cemetery ambiance equals a big win. No Rest for the Wicked is a total blast. Between climbing on top of tombstones and literally dancing on people's graves, the troupe marches through the hour-long set with blazing enthusiasm. Working from a catalog that includes familiar death-related joints like Nancy Sinatra's "Bang, Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)" and Nirvana-by-way-of-Leadbelly's "Where Did You Sleep Last Night?" and lesser-known songs like "Pistol Packin' Mama" and "Send Me To The 'Lectric Chair", the performers deliver lively, rousing arrangements. Cabaret is frequently defined by its setting, and Laurel Hill Cemetery proves to be pretty damn ideal.


"Come down and join the circus, it's the end of the world

Come down and join the circus, all you dead boys and girls"


"We're all just skeletons, reclining on a sea of flesh

Dancing in a sea of organs through lapping waves of blood"


SEE a sailor lost at sea as his widow drowns in a bathtub.

MARVEL as a serial- killing little girl pleads for the electric chair.

BEWARE a murdering rapist as he looks for his next victim.


All with music from Bessie Smith to The Scissor Sisters, Cab Calloway to Nirvana, and including many others.


So come indeed and-

"Enjoy's later than you think!!! "
