Black Box Cabaret presents ‘I Only Wanna Laugh’

FRANKLIN, Mass. – On Saturday, July 27, at 8 p.m., Black Box Cabaret will present “I Only Wanna Laugh,” an evening of musical shenanigans with Ali Funkhouser, The ACME Rhythm Section, and violinist Irina Fainkichen, at The Black Box, 15 West Central St.

A graduate of Oklahoma City University’s music theater program, Funkhouser toured internationally with Electric Youth across the U.K., France, Italy, Austria and Slovenia, and on Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas.
