A More Affordable Way to Develop New Works for Theater: Cabaret
Friday 9/29 at 5pm ET
In the room: Sherry Eaker, producer of the annual Bistro Awards, former editor-in-chief of Backstage; Michael Chase Gosselin, producer/general manager at Visceral Entertainment (The Most Miserable Christmas Tree, Emojiland, Midnight at the Never Get), director (The Nose, Endangered! The Music, Money Talks); Sidney Myer, cabaret icon and booking manager for Don't Tell Mama. Cabaret has always been a vibrant force in the arts scene in New York and around the world. A place to nurture up-and-coming talent as well as an intimate home for established stars, it has also offered exposure for song writers and – most importantly – has become an easy and accessible part of the developmental process for bringing new works to the stage. Come hear a range of success stories that started in cabaret, dating back to the birth of legendary mega-hit Nunsense, Forever Plaid, three shows by Maltby and Shire and many others.
