John Hemmer & the Showgirls

April 28, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Singer John Hemmer reunites with his band of showgirls from the famed Lou Walters Latin Quarter nightclub in New York City, and in doing so, finds renewed purpose.

A retired performer’s memories as a singer are intertwined with facing the rigors and rewards of his past and present, as he discovers resilience along with way.

JOHN HEMMER & THE SHOWGIRLS takes a celebratory peek inside the unique golden age of live entertainment of mid-century America, while considering themes around hidden identities, vanishing histories, personal and shared legacies, and what role community plays in one’s vitality as we grow older.
