Bobby Patrick

Heigh Ho Friends & “Family”! Bobby Patrick your RAINBOW Reviewer here. Putting the silent T in CABARET to bring you all the T. I am a queer reviewer, specializing in the seedy underbelly of the cabaret world with my own Queer Rainbow's Eye View of it all. I studied theatre in college, but got over that and followed a career in entertainment/theatrical advertising for nearly 2 decades.  Now I'm a freelance contributor, ready to bring you my Sunshine, Rainbows, and Rants for Broadway World's Cabaret (with a silent T) section, and fill you in on what's up in the Pubs, Rooms and Back Rooms (wink) of New York's entertainment community.

BWW Review: LATRICE ROYALE'S HERE'S TO LIFE at The Laurie Beechman Theatre
August 22, 2019

Dear Hearts, we took in RuPaul's Drag Race break-out star LATRICE ROYALE's opening night at the Laurie Beechman this week and, while she does indeed sing the TIT-u-lar 'Here's To Life' to close out the night, the show itself is a pure cabaret of song and stories that give you the feeling of, 'I know this person' by evening's end. Dearlings our beautiful Queen of the Big Girls took us all on a celebration JOURNEYYYYY through her life and times as she shared tales of a little gay boy growing up in Compton, CA, right through the choices that lead up to her time behind bars; and NOT the kind that serves our drinks.

BWW Review: SEAN PATRICK MURTAGH'S MARIO! Soars at The Green Room 42
August 16, 2019

With his NYC cabaret debut, Sean Patrick Murtagh holds forth on all things Mario Lanza and darlings he's got the voice to back it up.

August 14, 2019

Darlings, last night we watched Joe's Pub BURN to the ground! Set on FIRE by the incendiary Jackie Hoffman's fire breathing mouth. This perennial of such New York musical comedy classics as Hairspray, On The Town, her star turn in Once Upon A Mattress, and the current Off-Broadway hit-of-the-season A Kleyn Eydish (oh the heck with it) Fiddler On The Roof - In Yiddish no less, held forth with stand-up and lay-them-in-the-isles comedy songs for 70(ish) minutes that have us still laughing and wanting more; even though we are SORE from all the laughter.
