Broadway at the Cabaret: Chita Rivera, Eva Noblezada, The Skivvies & More This Week!

What good is sitting alone in your room this week? If you don't already have plans to see a Broadway show, come out to see your favorite Broadway stars in a cabaret act instead. After Broadway orchestras begin their overtures, ensemble members take their dance breaks, and performers belt out their eleven o'clock numbers, the party continues at various cabaret venues throughout New York City.

Below, BroadwayWorld brings you our top Broadway acts that can't be missed this week, March 4 - March 10, 2018. Come hear the music play!

Cheryl Bentyne
March 5 at Birdland- BUY TICKETS!

The Broadway at Birdland concert series is proud to announce that veteran jazz vocalist Cheryl Bentyne will perform on the iconic stage Monday, March 5 at 7pm. The concert will celebrate the singer's new CD, reARRANGEMENTS OF SHADOWS, a tribute to Stephen Sondheim. On reARRANGEMENTS OF SHADOWS, vocalist Cheryl Bentyne re-imagines songs by the iconic Broadway composer Stephen Sondheim. It takes an artist of Bentyne's stature to create her own fully realized, personal context from Sondheim's often difficult lyrics. According to Bentyne, "Sondheim doesn't just write song lyrics. He writes monologues. He writes how people really speak, and I wanted my renditions to sound as natural as Sondheim meant them to be. If you overwork a song, every note starts sounding predictable, and you wind up with a pop album. Spontaneity was an important part of the recording process."

Eva Noblezada
March 5 at Green Room 42- BUY TICKETS!

How you know her: Miss Saigon

If you missed her last week, she is back by popular demand! Through her favorite artists like Amy Winehouse and Frank Sinatra, Eva sings from her heart and reveals a side of her story you've never heard. Join her for an intimate evening of music, a good drink, and a wonderfully colorful set list.

The Skivvies
March 5 at Joe's Pub-

The Skivvies are Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley, award-winning NYC actor/musicians doing stripped down versions of eclectic covers and comedic, genre-hopping mashups. Not only are the arrangements stripped down - cello, ukulele, glockenspiel, melodica - but the Skivvies literally strip down to their underwear to perform. It's undie-rock at its finest. Featured in People Magazine's Hottest Bodies Issue as the Most Playful performers, the Wall Street Journal calls them "highly". Molina (Rock of Ages, Sweeney Todd, Candide) and Cearley (Pageant, A Midsummer Night's Dream, All Shook Up) started The Skivvies on YouTube becoming sensations with their covers of artists like Robyn, Carole King and Rihanna. Their live show, featuring Tony winning special guests, is wildly fun, packed with big voices and crazy harmonies. But no pants.

Chita Rivera
March 6, 9, 10 at Feinstein's/54 Below-

Chita Rivera has won two Tony Awards as Best Leading Actress in a Musical and received eight additional Tony nominations for an exceptional 10 Tony nominations.
