BWW Review: Kim David Smith Takes Alt-Cabaret to a Fantasia Level With His Electro-Show At Joe's PubBWW Review: Kim David Smith Takes Alt-Cabaret to a Fantasia Level With His Electro-Show At Joe's Pub
by John Hoglund - Oct 20, 2015

Some performers push the envelope. In the case of Kim David Smith, no avant-garde, gender-bending, or mainstream artist dancing in the cabaret arena today takes more risks. Never was this more in evidence than in his brand new show, Stargazing at Joe's Pub on October 8. Few artists work harder to express themselves through the increasingly visible alt-cabaret genre than Smith. He doesn't just break glass ceilings he crashes them with a jackhammer. To accomplish this, he seamlessly re-imagines Weimar-era, neo-classicism and Berlin-channeling cabaret at every turn the likes of which have not been seen since Marlene Dietrich in the 1930 film, The Blue Angel.

BWW Review: Because He Can, Shawn Moninger Presents Cabaret Filled with Humor, Heart and Spirituality at the Metropolitan RoomBWW Review: Because He Can, Shawn Moninger Presents Cabaret Filled with Humor, Heart and Spirituality at the Metropolitan Room
by Victoria Ordin - Mar 4, 2016

It took 30 years for Shawn Moninger, a Unity minister and longtime technical director with four MAC awards, to move out of the booth and onto the stage. His show Because I Can (which has been running monthly at the Metropolitan Room since last November) is more a one-man Off-Broadway comedy show than typical cabaret. Almost without exception, the opening of a cabaret show is the weakest. Performers tend to warm up around the third or fourth number. That was not the case at the February 27 show, or as Moniger put it, 'the Senior Citizen Happy Hour.' (more...)

Since her cabaret debut at Eighty Eight's in 1992, Yanna Avis has played every major room in New York and has become one of the most popular international artists, with a fan base that continues to grow. With her new show at 54 Below (on June 18), Make Some Magic, Avis demonstrated why she is so unique and renowned for classy interpretations of songs from the 1930s to 1940s.

Unreleased Live Album from Mercurial Bauhaus Frontman Peter Murphy Gets ReleaseUnreleased Live Album from Mercurial Bauhaus Frontman Peter Murphy Gets Release
by BWW News Desk - Jan 28, 2016

 Peter Murphy is one of the most revered and recognizable figures in the dark side of art rock, having fronted the legendary gothic post-punk quartet Bauhaus in the late '70s and early '80s before pursuing a distinctive and creatively rich solo career starting in 1986. His success as a solo artist, amazingly enough, nearly eclipsed his previous stint with singles such as “Indigo Eyes” and the massive smash hit “Cuts You Up” elevating Murphy to center stage before a larger audience than he could have ever imagined possible. And it was indeed on the stage where Murphy truly shined, investing every phrase and note of his vast repertoire with unparalleled passion and poise. At the turn of the century, Murphy would take a moment to reflect on his solo career, releasing a greatest hits compilation called Wild Birds and embarking on an extensive world tour where he brought many of those highlights to life on stage.  (more...)

by Alix Cohen - Feb 25, 2016

Some years ago when Tony Award-winning actress (for For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf (Ntozake Shange) and playwright Trezanna Beverley's voice coach suggested she listen to Mabel Mercer, the artist had not heard of the nightclub and cabaret singing icon. A trip to the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture (Harlem) began a protracted period of research into Mercer's life and work. Beverley found she not only respected and admired her subject, but felt a kinship both in spirit and color. Inspired, she decided to write her own theatrical script about Mercer's life and art with the goal of playing her in a one-woman show. Her dream has been realized with Mabel Madness, a play with music that opened this week at Urban Stages and runs until March 20. (more...)
