Cabaret 313 brings to a close their first virtual season with a glamorous singing couple.

Josh Young and Emily Padgett Close out Cabaret 313 Virtual Season with Andrew Lloyd Webber Show On April 30th

As the year of the pandemic comes full circle and as summer approaches, many of the theatrical institutions are wrapping up what has been a different kind of year: the year of reinvention. Theaters, nightclubs, teaching establishments and more have spent the last fourteen months exploring virtual entertainment - what it is, how to make it happen, whether it is effective, if it can be lucrative. Artists from all around the world have found audiences all around the world, through this New Medium, and while we at Broadway World Cabaret have tried to keep up with those artists and companies, there has been so much online content that some of the Wonderful Productions they have presented have slipped past us. Apologies abound.

Imagine my surprise when I saw an online story about Josh Young performing for CABARET 313. Well, what the heck? Immediately I Googled Cabaret 313 (Google is your friend), only to discover that Mr. Young is the closing act of their first virtual season, one that had featured shows by Eva Noblezada and Ali Stroker. Well, booger. (That's my favorite word, courtesy of an eight-year-old in my life). Well, I may have missed the boat on Misses Noblezada and Stroker, but the fates had my back on the Josh Young show. I once saw Mr. Young sing the song "Jesus Christ Superstar" in a sparkly royal blue suit and I still haven't recovered. (That's a compliment). I reached out to the administrative offices of the Michigan based arts organization Cabaret 313 with one simple request: Let me help promote your show. A very nice lady named Sabrina Rosneck wrote back with all the information below, which I encourage everyone to read, but here is the data everyone wants and needs right now:

About Cabaret 313

Cabaret 313 was established in 2013 with the vision of bringing premiere cabaret performances to metro-Detroit. It creates opportunities for audiences to sit up close and share intimate evenings with acclaimed performers. Stripping away the tropes of a large scale production, Cabaret 313 provides an atmosphere for both audiences and performers to enjoy an evening dedicated to songs and storytelling. As part of its mission, Cabaret 313 also fosters the growth of the art form through a series of master classes in partnership with the Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit, allowing youth ages 8-18 to learn first-hand from veteran performers.

To continue bringing accessible cabaret to its audience in the wake of COVID-19, Cabaret 313 launched it's first-ever virtual season consisting of pay-what-you-can virtual performances and interactive Q&A's. Its 2020-2021 season featured Broadway's Eva Noblezada and Ali Stroker, as well as rising stars Isabel Stein, Griffin Binnicker and Justin Showell.
