EAT Announces Line-Up for Developmental Cabaret Series

News   EAT Announces Line-Up for Developmental Cabaret Series
The line-up for the third installment of Emerging Artists Theatre's developmental series, Catch a Cabaret, has been announced.

Emerging Artists' cabaret component – curated by Jonathan Warman and Damon Boggess – runs June 2-7 at the Roy Arias Theatre Center.

The schedule for Catch a Cabaret follows:

  • Sarah & Robare, The World Tour
    "Sarah & Robare take you on their world tour, evoking the elegant music salons of a bygone era (think 'Gosford Park'), through the exquisitely lovely music of Ivor Novello, Noel Coward, Cole Porter, Victor Herbert." (June 2, 7 PM)
  • Morgan Sings Mercer
    "Morgan Sills sings the words and music of Johnny Mercer. The story of Mercer's life is charmingly told through Sills' well-researched, delightful and occasionally dishy patter and those great Mercer songs: 'Moon River,' 'That Old Black Magic' and more!" (June 3, 7 PM)


  • Two For the Show
    "Jami Simon & Tom Godfrey's two-character project responds to the lack of performance material for over-40 performers, showing our versatility with a variety of roles; yes, we can move from 7 to 70 years faster than you can say 'That was awesome!'" (June 4, 7 PM)
  • Romance with Many Tongues
    "David Goldman sings original pop/jazz, blues, Spanish and Brazilian songs along with some rare chestnuts in all the Latin languages. He also offers a running commentary on his own varied background, which includes Jewish, Sicilian, Albanian and Egyptian." (June 4, 9 PM)
  • Shannon Marie Kerr
    "A cabaret featuring songs by Bonnie Raitt, Tom Waits and the Indigo Girls, bridged by funny stories about waitressing experiences and relationships." (June 5, 7 PM)
  • Joanna Engelman
    "Ms. Engleman's show is about coming to NY to be an actress and all the jobs - temping, tour guiding and more -- and pitfalls along the way, told through several fantastic songs." (June 5, 9 PM)
  • Comic Tales of Tragic Heartbreak
    "Robert Whaley blends poetry, jazz and soul into a cabaret act featuring original songs and short monologues, running through the cycle of sexual adventure, love and loss — and everything in between." (June 6, 7 PM)
  • Johnny Infamous
    "A short cabaret musical by EAT member Matt Casarino." (June 6, 9 PM)
  • Where the Fu@k is Kansas?!
    "Xavier Rice, a black-gay-28-year-old emigrant from the Midwest, combines stories and songs to tell how music, friends, a conversation with god's personal assistant and his own mother, 'Mamma Rice' guides him down the yellow brick road through this new Emerald City." (June 7, 7 PM)
  • Cabaret FM
    "A cast of five explores what would happen is the rock bands of the past few decades wrote for Broadway shows? What if Roy Orbinson's 'Crying' was a rousing opening number? What if 'Baba O'Riley' found it's place in a Sondheim musical? What if 'Don't Stop Believing' was the emotional closing to Rent, or Les Miz?" (June 7, 9 PM) All performances will be followed by a talkback session with the performers and writers.

    The developmental series also includes the one-woman play festival One Woman Standing (May 12-18); and One Man Talking, featuring solo works developed by men (May 20-25).

    Tickets for Catch a Cabaret, priced $10, are available by visiting or by phoning (866) 811-4111.

    The Roy Arias Theatre Center is located at 300 West 43rd Street (5th floor) in Manhattan.
