About his upcoming Manhattan cabaret debut, West said, "I like where I've been. The ups and downs of my life onstage and off have taught me a lot. It took me a while, but now I love where I am. When words alone aren't enough, all I can do is sing about it...and I'm feeling good!"
The evenings will feature music direction by Steven Ray Watkins, direction by Mark Hawbecker and musical arrangements by Watkins and West; the show is written by Hawbecker and West.
