Yael Rasooly & Iliya Magalnyk @ LBT 1/13/19

International chanteuse and theatre artist Yael Rasooly and virtuoso accordionist Iliya Magalnyk brought an old-world glamour, a polyglot sensibility, and a light touch to the Laurie Beechman Theatre with “Glamour In The Dark,” an eclectic set of songs in French, Yiddish, Hebrew, and English.

Mischa Kischkum @ DTM, 12/20/18

Christmas came early (or did Chanukah come late?) for those of us lucky enough to catch “Mischa Kischkum is OFF THE CHARTS (Songs You Don’t Know By Writers You Love)” at Don’t Tell Mama on December 20.

Carol Lipnik @ Pangea, 12/9

With characteristic self-deprecating humor, Carol Lipnik dedicated her set of original songs and quirky covers at Pangea to “The Goddess of Imperfection.” Lipnik has one foot in the avant-garde and one foot in the sideshow tradition of her native Coney Island.

Deborah Zecher @ DTM 12/4

Warm, sincere, thoughtful; a mature woman of depth and substance, with a round contralto and a twinkle in her eye—who wouldn’t want to spend an hour in the company of Deborah Zecher?

Dorian Woodruff @ Pangea 12/1/18

Impeccably musical, impeccably groomed, and with impeccable vocal technique, in Welcome Home: Everybody Has A Story, Mr. Woodruff presented glimpses of his own backstory and the origin of his “love affair with opulence” through a series of vignettes about the people in his past.

Christina Bianco @ Birdland Theater, 11/1/18

Diminutive in stature, impressionist-singer-actress Christina Bianco is a towering talent.  She took time from her busy international touring schedule this month to present a series of CD-release shows at the Birdland Theater, backed by a tight quartet of musicians (piano, bass, drums, and guitar), in celebration of “Life Of The Party,” her deliriously over-funded IndieGoGo project recorded live in London.

Jillian Laurain @ DTM 10/27/18

“Sentimental Journey: The Songs of the 1930s and 1940s” was exactly as advertised—a journey through 24 beloved standards from two of the greatest decades of the American Songbook which did not seek to illuminate with insidery patter or surprising arrangements.  It felt more like an old-school nightclub act, featuring all seven performers’ sheer musicianship in celebration of a repertoire that was as much a turn-on for them as it was for the audience.

Cabaret Hotspot

CALLING ALL PHOTOGRAPHERS! In Association with Publishers Rowman & Littlefield and the National Association of Teachers of Singing, I am holding an industry-wide photo competition, for the cover of my new book! “So You Want to Sing Cabaret!” is the latest in the “So You Want to Sing” series of academic books by publishers Rowman & Littlefield, sponsored by The National Association of Teachers of Singing, and will have a wide distribution among universities, national bookstores, and online distribution. R&L and NATS are looking for a unique photo for the cover of this book, a close-up (at the mic) action picture of a cabaret singer. The singer does not have to be well-know (but can be). The action within the picture must be compelling, and the photo must distinctly characterize a Cabaret performance (rather than any other type of performance at a mic – see reference covers below). The picture must be full color, high resolution. You may submit up to 30 photos for consideration. Full Photo credit and a small stipend will be offered to the winner. Send your photos by shared file transfer (Dropbox, Google Drive, WeTransfer, etc) to david@cabarethotspot.com DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION is APRIL 1, 2019! The winning photo will be chosen by the publisher and the winner will be notified by May 1, 2019. At that time a standard release form will be executed by both the photographer and the subject(s) in the photo. BE SURE to have your subject’s permission to submit! Although submissions do not have to be finalized until April 1, please email or message me immediately with your intent to submit. GOOD LUCK! Below are pictures of the books in the series thus far, to give a visual context for what the publisher would like to see. ... See MoreSee Less
