Ken Haller
The Medicine Show!

Sat, March 14, 8:00 PM
The Blue Strawberry, 364 N. Boyle Ave 63108 (in the Central West End)
Info, tickets, and dinner reservations at: 

Ken Haller’s The Medicine Show peddles miracle cures compounded by Jason Robert Brown, Adam Guettel, Stephen Sondheim, Harold Arlen, Frank Loesser, Cole Porter, and other noted practitioners of the healing arts. In 65-minutes of song and story, Ken shows us how becoming a doctor is just the first step in becoming a healer. 

Specifically, Ken talks about how, as a gay physician coming of age in New York in the early 1980s, encountering one of the very first cases of what we would come to know as HIV/AIDS would change the course of his professional and personal life

The Blue Strawberry is St. Louis’s brand new cabaret room and supper club with a wonderful menu and artisinal cocktails. Come early for a fabulous dinner and drinks, and stay for the show. Valet parking available. 

KEN HALLER BEST ST. LOUIS CABARET PERFORMER: Cabaret performers come and go, but Ken Haller, a pediatrician by day, is a St. Louis legend. If you’re interested in what makes the Great American Songbook great, you owe it to yourself to give this man a listen.” – Calvin Wilson, The GO! List, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“Fast and funny! Truly moving! Haller delivered the goods with that combination of theatrical smarts and vocal authority that has made him one of our town’s principal cabaret exports.” – Chuck Lavazzi, Cabaret Scenes Magazine

“Excellence on every level! Wonderful singing, consummate story-telling, a marvelous performance!” – Cabaret legend Steve Ross

“Pediatricians have many talents—Ken is a dear friend and a wonderful pediatrician—and he does a moving and delightful cabaret show with songs and stories about families and growing up—and turning into yourself.” – New York Times columnist Perri Klass, MD

PrideFloat 2020 Camping Weekend
Jun 4 @ 1:00 pm – Jun 8 @ 1:00 pm


Annual Pridefloat Weekend
Thursday, June 4, 2020 thru June 8, 2020
Lebanon, MO

See website for details and RSVP: www.pridefloat.net

Pridefloat is about a bunch of gay guys and gals from all over the Mid-West (mostly Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, and Illinois) camping together for five days and four nights and having a good time. For the past 6 years we have had 15 different states represented! Wow! Each year we have a blast making new friends and seeing our old ones again. Pridefloat is open to gay men and women, couples, singles, and gay friendly Heterosexuals. Pridefloat is one place where gay men and women can actually get to know each other, understand and appreciate our differences, and have fun together. We feel there is not enough events that incorporate gay men and women together as equals. We have many who return each  year. First timers often leave saying “I will be here every year from now on.” The weekend goes by way too quickly.
