Palo Alto Players, currently celebrating its 90th Anniversary season, has announced a new virtual cabaret series, HOMEBOUND CABARETS, for Fall 2020.

The HOMEBOUND CABARETS series comprises three virtual cabarets streaming October 23 through December 13, 2020. With original concept by Artistic Director Patrick Klein, the cabarets are designed to be at-home experiences that can be watched at show time, hosted live with special surprise guests, or viewable on demand up to 24 hours after the live stream. Streaming tickets and 3-series virtual subscriptions are on sale now at or by phone at 650.329.0891.

"It's long been a dream of mine to create a cabaret series to highlight the extraordinary talent we have participating in our mainstage programming," said Artistic Director Patrick Klein. "If this unprecedented situation has given us anything, it has allowed us the time and opportunity to boldly explore new avenues of production. I am excited to see what our friends come up with from their homes, as this series is all about tapping into their boundless creative and innovative energy!"
