More cabaret news on the National front. This from Stuart Hamstra and open to any of us that have a flexible schedule that can accommodate travel plans to the Big Apple. It is the 24th annual Cabaret Convention Oct 7-10th; presented by the Mabel Mercer Foundation and taking place at Lincoln Center Jazz.
An amazing roster of over 60 artists will be featured over the festival. Highlights that grab me include the opening gala hosted by KT Sullivan who is also the president of the above Mabel Mercer Foundation. "Come Fly With Me" celebrating the music of Sammy Cahn and Jimmy VanHeusen will be on the eve of Oct 8th with Jack Jones and Billy Stritch just a few of the singers sharing the stage. Oct 9th features my personal favorite Rodgers & Hart "Falling In Love With Love" hosted by diva Andrea Marcovicci with a slate of singers including Liz Callaway for starters. Just the tip of the incredible iceberg to take in. Grab a plane and buy a ticket.
