Three nights of cabaret artists and artistry had Rose Theater all abuzz.

Photos: CABARET CONVENTION 2022 at Rose Theater by Helane Blumfield This last week the Thirty-third annual cabaret convention took place in New York City at Rose Theater at Jazz At Lincoln Center. For three nights, cabaret artists that had been invited by the Mabel Mercer Foundation to perform in the extravaganza played to full houses of fellow artists and fans of the industry and art form. Each night had a theme and a host that had curated the talent, and arrived with some prepared comments on the topic at hand: the lyrics of Yip Harburg, the legacy of Nat King Cole, and the general topic of the Great American Songbook. Some artists appeared with their usual musical director, while others performed with the Cabaret Convention-appointed band, which varied from night to night.

Broadway World Cabaret photographer Helane Blumfield attended all three performances in order to bring our readers a visual representation of the proceedings.

About Helane Blumfield:

Photos: CABARET CONVENTION 2022 at Rose Theater by Helane Blumfield THEY CALL ME H. I love what I do and do what I love. Create amazing content. Wow, the world. Have fun doing it. My mantra, my way. It all happens when passion is your driver and your inner fire is ignited. How lucky am I to have been able to apply these simple guides to my life work! I am a nationally recognized creative visionary who has navigated the world of design and advertising most recently as the SVP Creative for Macy's.

Now inspired by the cabaret community I have once again found myself behind the lens and I couldn't be any more excited.
