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, April 21 - 27, 2019. Come hear the music play!
Musical theater writer and rabble rouser Joe Iconis brings his unique mash-up of showtune cabaret and rock and roll jamboree back to Feinstein's/54 Below.

Iconis has penned the musicals Be More Chill (currently playing on Broadway at the Lyceum Theater), Broadway Bounty Hunter, Bloodsong of Love, The Black Suits, ReWrite, and The Plant That Ate Dirty Socks, as well as the theatrical concert Things to Ruin (cast recording available on Ghostlight Records). The concert will feature Joe Iconis & Family members including Annie Golden, Molly Hager, Lauren Marcus, Eric William Morris, Jeremy Morse, Krysta Rodriguez, and George Salazar.

Featuring songs by Cy Coleman, Frank Wildhorn, Stephen Sondheim, Andrew Lloyd Webber, William Finn and more. Kate's previous Broadway credits include originating the role of Skylar in Bring It On: the Musical, Sherrie in Rock of Ages, Margot in Legally Blonde, and Hair.
