It’ll be a rare but honest behind-the-scenes look into the life of a talented artist sharing experiences and thoughts from the heart on what it really means to “make it” in this business.

Why I’ll Never Make It podcast was created in 2017 to explore the reasons actors and creative professionals don’t succeed and foster honest conversations of the day-to-day struggles in the entertainment industry. Interviews range from such notables as *NSYNC’s Joey Fatone and Caitlin Kinnunen from Broadway’s The Prom to everyday actors, composers, directors, and teachers. They all share a common theme of how hard this business can be, yet each of them share their passion for the arts and what keeps them going through all the ups and downs. As the old song goes, “There’s no people like show people, they smile when they are low.” Listeners will certainly find laughter and inspiration from the stories and experiences shared on this podcast.

Cabaret Hotspot
Halfway through her show Elena Bennett mused aloud: “Who knew there were so many fun songs about sad topics?” That doesn’t sound like a ringing endorsement. But, when the singer is Elena Bennett and the man playing the grand piano is Fred Barton, the songs are indeed fun, and the show is a grand old time.Elena Bennett and Fred Barton presented a winning set that redefined the “break up song“ and left the heart full and toes tapping.With distinct and creamy voice Bennett proved once again her award winning capabilities as a first class entertainer. Audible gasps were heard from the audience on more than one occasion as she finished yet another heart wrenching rendition of songs like “I Can Dream Can’t I” (Irving Kahal/Sammy Fain) and “How About Me” (Berlin). And then, turning on a dime, she regaled the audience with a famous swing tune, from which the title of their show, “Swing Out Under The Moon” was inspired.Music Director Fred Barton subbed in for a 27 piece orchestra, and left the audience wanting nothing. So masterful and powerful was his playing that the intimate club Pangea seemed to be transformed into Carnegie Hall.They finished their sets with an encore of “The Lady From 29 Palms,” from their seminal recording “A Wrinkle in Swingtime,” available on all streaming platforms.Return engagements are indeed warranted.
