BWW Cabaret Awards

Final Weekend To Vote For The 2018 BroadwayWorld Cabaret Awards!

There's just one weekend left to vote for the BroadwayWorld Cabaret Awards!

The BWW Cabaret Awards honor exemplary performers and productions in New York from November 1, 2017 to October 31, 2018. Nominees in all categories excluding Special Event - Solo and Special Event - Multiple needed to have performed all or the majority of their shows (at least two of three shows) during this eligibility period.

This marks the first year of the Best Burlesque Show or Act, Best Drag Artist or Impersonator, Best Major Recording, and Best Revue/Group Show categories. Additionally, all previously-gendered categories, including Best Show, have been combined. These changes changes and additions are meant to reflect the diverse and ever-changing landscape of the industry and give recognition to local performers who have not previously been eligible.

Nominations were both reader-submitted and chosen by BWW Cabaret's editing and reviewing staff to best represent and honor the wide range of talent New York's cabaret scene has to offer. After the nomination period ended on October 31, the list was proofed for eligibility and errors.

Voting will run through December 31, 2018, and winners will be announced in January! Check out the current standings below!
