What a great weekend...Brian & I went to the glorious new Manhattan cabaret room, 54 Below to catch Austin Cabaret Theatre alums Jason Graae, Faith Prince, and Alex Rybeck in their hysterical show "The Prince & The Showboy." It is truly my new favorite room in the City--they "did it right" when putting this venue together. It's gorgeous as well as state-of-the-art. Alex Rybeck, who is New York's go-to Musical Director did the festive arrangements, and you'll experience his genius during our Holiday show at Austin Cabaret! As icing on the cake, we ran into Hunter Ryan Herdlicka, who is headlining our January show with his critically acclaimed cabaret performance. It was fun to catch up with this talented young man, as well as discuss a few "business" details for his trip to Austin!
I'm also incredibly excited about the start of the Austin Cabaret Theatre 2012-2013 Season! And what a start we have for you...Billy Stritch has been to ACT, but never in a solo capacity!!! And what a performance it is--Billy will be bringing us his smash hit cabaret singing the songbook of the incredible Mel Torme'! Many of you have enjoyed Billy when he's been here with Jim Caruso, or Klea Blackhurst, or as Musical Director for Liza Minnelli when she played the Long Center...and you do NOT want to miss him along with Utah Hamrick on bass and Nathan Langfitt on drums. You can order tickets for Billy's show by clicking HERE!
If you have a group or have any questions, don't hesitate to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and if you haven't yet ordered your Season Tickets, you can download the order form on the "Current Season" tab at www.austincabaret.org
See you at the cabaret, chums!
