March is Cabaret Month, Hector and Taxes

Hi Friends:

The big events on my calendar this week are:

Going to see Hector Coris at the Duplex in FADE IN, FADE OUT - a production of Opening Doors Theatre Company. I can't wait to see him in a whole new light!

Promoting Stu Hamstra's MARCH IS CABARET MONTH show at the Beechman on 3/10. There are still some tickets left for this amazing line up of talent. Stu does so much for the cabaret community - I hope you'll consider supporting him, not only by going to the show, but by doing whatever you can to help keep him promoting our craft.

Doing my taxes! Hence the brevity of this post!

This month, though, I can tell you that I'll be catching Marcus Goldhaber at the Iridium, Cynthia Crane, Nina Hennessey and Shawn Ryan at the Metropolitan Room in their respective shows, and celebrating the one year anniversary of the Algonquin Salon on 3/22. Check out the websites of these two clubs to see when these folks are doing their shows and while you're at it, see when Laurie Krauze and Terese Genecco are performing there - I've seen both of their shows at Iridium, and you gotta see these powerchiks do their thing!

I'm also performing at the Really Cooking Supperclub in Dallas, PA on 3/24, doing a reading of one of my favorite shows, AT THE BACK OF THE NORTHWIND in Fairlawn, NJ on 3/27, and seeing John McMahon do his first ever solo cabaret show for the SAVE THE GATEWAY cause at the Inlet Restaurant in Somers Point, NJ.

April 13th will find me hosting RAISSA AND FRIENDS - NOT THE USUAL SUSPECTS for Cabaret Cares at the Laurie Beechman. March 3oth, my friend Eric Michael Gillett does his WIDESCREEN show for this great cause. More info on my website: http://www.raissa.info/ and here soon.

April 15th is the gala return of THE NEW CONCERTS AT TUDOR CITY GREENS and we are doing it up big! Stay tuned for more info on that....

And, I'm really busy with some BIG projects that I'll share with THE WORLD as soon as the contracts are signed!

Have a great week!

Love and light,
