Duplex Hosts Kristy Cates on 6/6 and Karen Mason on 6/13

It is with great pleasure that The Duplex Cabaret Theatre announces the continuation of the celebrated BROADWAY DOWNTOWN series during the month of June. Broadway Downtown was launched in early 2005 as a program to celebrate Broadway talents in special, one-night-only concerts. Past participants have included Barbara Walsh, Sally Mayes, Christiane Noll, Darius DeHaas, Judy Blazer and Barrett Foa. This June, The Duplex is pleased to welcome:

June 6 @ 7pm Wicked's Kristy Cates in her farewell to NYC performance, before leaving the Broadway production of WICKED to assume the role of Elphaba in the Chicago production.

June 13 @ 7pm Mamma Mia's Karen Mason in BETTER DAYS, a tribute to songwriter Brian Lasser

Tickets for Broadway Downtown are $20 each, and are available via Smarttix: www.smarttix.com, or 212.868.4444. Please note there is a two-drink minimum at each performance, and no one under 21 will be permitted. The Duplex Cabaret Theatre is located at 61 Christopher Street, in the heart of New York's West Village.

Kristy Cates is currently making her Broadway debut in the ensemble of the Broadway production of Wicked, and as understudy for the role of Elphaba. Earlier this year, Kristy was rushed to Toronto to perform the role of Elphaba for several weeks, when leading lady Stephanie J. Block was injured during final rehearsals for the national tour of the hit Broadway musical. Immediately following her performance at The Duplex Cabaret Theatre, Kristy will head to Chicago to participate in the sit-down production of Wicked, where she will stand-by for leading lady Ana Gasteyer. Kristy made her Off-Broadway debut in Boobs! The Musical and also appeared in the 2005 revival of Love Letters at The Duplex Cabaret Theatre. Favorite regional roles include jon and jen (Jen) and Into the Woods (Witch). Holding a BFA from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, Kristy's earlier cabaret work in New York includes her own solo show at Don't Tell Mama, as well as numerous appearances with The Storefront Theatre Company at The Duplex Cabaret Theatre. Phil Geoffrey Bond will direct the show, with Musical Direction by Ray Fellman.
