Special Friends is a new two act queer cabaret in Berlin produced and created by Elliat Graney-Saucke . The launch on July 21st at Monster Ronson’s Ichiban Karaoke included an all star international range of Berlin-based performers such at Princessin Hans, Girly Show Inc, Liad Hussein Kantorowicz, and featured everything from multi media performance and singing to belly dance and hoola-hooping . Hostesses Hedi Mohr and Sir La Muse not only hosted but collaborated on a number of new music performances, especially for the show.
