BWW TV: Cabaret Corner With Lina Koutrakos

Article Pixel

Welcome to Cabaret Corner, a series devoted to having meaningful conversations with change-making cabaret artists.

Lina Koutrakos is a true original. One of kind, this powerhouse of the industry does it all, from singing rock and roll, the blues, and traditional cabaret to helping other artists realize their cabaret dreams as a mentor. The "Cool Aunt" of Cabaret, Lina has directed, taught, and performed with the best of the best, all around the world, for decades. Ms. Koutrakos has the ability to change the molecules in the room simply by stepping onto the stage and looking an audience member in the eye. A favorite quote of this reporter, 'Cabaret is the art of being yourself on purpose' could easily describe Lina Koutrakos, which should surprise nobody, since the sentence was first spoken by Ms. Koutrakos' best friend, the late Dick Gallagher. One suspects he was thinking of her when he said it for the first time.

Please enjoy this biography from Ms. Koutrakos' website:

Cabaret Corner is collecting donations for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, an organization that "helps men, women, and children across the country and across the street receive lifesaving medications, health care, nutritious meals, counseling, and emergency financial assistance."

This week, Cabaret Corner will continue collecting donations for National Bail Fund Network Emergency Response Fund. "Every day, community bail & bond funds raise money to free our friends and neighbors from local and county jails as well as immigration jails. This is always urgent work as jails, prisons, and immigration jails have always been sites of violence and death. The COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated this public health crisis.

Your contribution to the Protest & COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund at the Community Justice Exchange will be distributed across the 60+ community bail and bond funds of the National Bail Fund Network who are posting bail and bond for individuals in immigration detention and local and county jails. All funds are distributed as quickly as they can be used to free individuals in jails and immigration detention centers.

A full list of the local bail and bond funds of the National Bail Fund Network can be found at:
