The 92Y School of Music’s
Cabaret Conversations with Michael Kirk Lane
Now  available On-Demand!

For over a year Michael Kirk Lane has been hosting a monthly series for 92Y School of Music to document and discuss the art form of Cabaret. It has been an absolute gift. I’ve sat down with so many amazing artists and had in depth conversations about this unique and often misunderstood art form. All of the previous conversations are now available for purchase.

Watch Michael as he chats with (in order of appearance):
KT Sullivan, Joe Iconis, David Sabella, Sue Matsuki, Karen Mason, Natalie Douglas, Sidney Myer, Chita Rivera, Lennie Watts, Amy Wolk, T Oliver Reid, John McDaniel and Susie Mosher and more!


Michael Kirk Lane is an award-winning cabaret artist, having most recently won the 2020 Manhattan Association of Cabaret Award for Male Musical Comedy Performer. Along with 3 previous MAC nominations, Lane has been nominated for 10 BroadwayWorld Cabaret Awards,winning in 2018 for Best Show. Stephen Mosher of BroadwayWorld Cabaret has called Lane “one of the most popular performers and people working in cabaret today.” Cabaret Scenes Magazine has deemed Lane’s work “musical comedy heaven.”

Beyond his own experience performing in cabaret, Lane’s experience managing two of the city’s most renowned cabaret venues (The Laurie Beechman Theatre, Don’t Tell Mama) offers him a unique vantage point and perspective on the art form. As a teaching artist for over 20 years, Lane has taught all ages from pre-school to retirement homes. In each class he brings the same philosophy to his teaching, no matter the age of the students. “Art, Theatre, and Music are ways for us to connect with our most authentic self, and to explore the world around us.”
