The nine-week Gaslight Cabaret series includes Marissa Mulder’s “The Songs of Tom Waits,” lauded by the New York Times as “the best of the season.”
St. Louisans who like to gorge themselves on entertainment may already indulge in movie marathons and TV binge-watching. Beginning Thursday, Feb. 20, they can also get their fill of cabaret performances.
The Gaslight Cabaret Festival, two months of cabaret performances at the Gaslight Theater, opens next week with a show by Broadway veteran and St. Louis native Ken Page.
Page got his start at the MUNY more than 40 years ago. After two summers performing at the MUNY, he moved to New York City, where he performed on Broadway in the original casts of “Cats,” “Ain't Misbehavin',” “The Wiz”,” Ain't Nothin' But The Blues,” and “Guys & Dolls.” Fans of “The Nightmare Before Christmas” may recognize him as the voice of Mr. Oogie Boogie.
The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis opens tonight with a revival of the musical "Cabaret." First performed on Broadway in 1966, the musical is set in 1930s Berlin.
Because it captures the shift and change in power during pre-Nazi Germany, the show gives you more than entertainment. It also gives you something to think about, said Steve Wolff. He is the artistic director for the Repertory Theatre.
The second annual St. Louis Cabaret Festival begins Wednesday, July 31, 2013. Marilyn Maye, Billy Stritch, Jason Graae and John Bucchino are the festival headliners.
Marilyn Maye is a legendary cabaret singer who has performed on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson a record 76 times. She joined Billy Stritch, a singer, songwriter and pianist who often performs with Liza Minnelli and the Cabaret Project's Executive Director, Tim Schall, to talk about the upcoming festival with Cityscape host Steve Potter.
