In early 2015, Stephen Hanks decided to transition from being a cabaret show reviewer (first for Cabaret Scenes Magazine and then as the Cabaret Editor and lead reviewer for BroadwayWorld.com) into producing and promoting shows. Having been inside the world of New York cabaret for just four years at the point, Hanks would hear stories about award-winning or highly-praised shows of the past that he'd wished he'd seen. By August, a new variety show series was born at the late Metropolitan Room in Chelsea called NEW YORK CABARET'S GREATEST HITS.
