There's no "Tomorrow" for this years four day 27th New York Cabaret Convention but there certainly was a thrilling performance of that song by host Kela Blackhurst and the Broadway by the Year Chorus. The composer and lyricist were in attendance as their songs were performed by a wonderful group of cabaret artists. The convention even produced a 12 year old to recreate the emotions of seeing "Annie" as Zoe Gelman sang Maybe & NYC to the Rose Theater audience. Luckily there will be a "tomorrow" for the Mabel Mercer Foundations Cabaret Convention and mark your calendars for the 28th New York Cabaret Convention in 2017.

Performing in the final evening were, in order of appearance: KLea Blackhurst, Valerie Lemon, Joshua Lance Dixon, Lauren Stanford (awarded the Julie Wilson Award), Shawn Ryan, Joanne Tatham, Shana Farr, Anita Gillette, Penny Fuller, Stearns Matthews, Zoe Gelman, Corinna Sowers Adler, Scott Coulter, Lena Moy-Borgen, Liam Forde, Marieann Meringolo, Amra-Faye Wright, Todd Murray (awarded the Margaret Whiting Award), and Broadway by the Year Chorus.
