Curated and hosted by Don Michael Mendoza and Regie Cabico, La-Ti-Do made its debut to a full house in Washington, DC on January 23, 2012 at The Black Fox Lounge in Dupont Circle and since then, it has become Washington, DC’s premiere musical theatre cabaret and spoken word series to serve the DC artistic community on a weekly basis. The show then opened a touring chapter in New York City on June 9, 2013 at Bowery Poetry Club and continues to do so on a monthly basis. Most recently the show moved from Black Fox Lounge to James Hoban’s Irish Restaurant & Bar in DC and re-launched on January 12, 2015.
Past musical performers include Helen Hayes Award nominees and recipients: Priscilla Cuellar, Nicholas Rodriguez, Diana Huey, Nova Y. Payton, Erin Driscoll, Matt Conner, Chris Sizemore, Will Gartshore, and Joshua Morgan alongside international spoken word artists: Gail Danley, Sonya Renee Taylor, Sophia Walker, and Vijai Nathan.
WINNER of DC Metro Theater Arts’ Special Award in 2012, 2013, and 2014
This is the 3rd straight year that we have honored Don Michael Mendoza and Regie Cabico’s La-Ti-Do. As they are about to start a new chapter in their new venue-James Hoban’s Irish Restaurant and Bar – 1 Dupont Circle, NW, in Washington, DC, starting Monday, January 12, 2015 at 8 pm.
La-Ti-Do has filled a void in the DC arts scene, with their weekly cabaret performances of music and spoken word. Their events not only simultaneously showcased up-and-coming and professional artists, but they fostered the community of artists in the DC/MD/VA area.
