“In his playfulness, Mr. Smith is a descendant of his fellow Australian Peter Allen. He could be described as a younger generation’s “Boy From Oz.”” Stephen Holden, The New York Times
Described as “the David Bowie of cabaret” (BroadwayWorld.com), and "a male Marlene Dietrich" by the New York Times, host Kim David Smith conjures the glitter, doom, and decadence of 1920’s Berlin with “Morphium Kabarett.”
Named for the sensual, Spoliansky-penned waltz (famously danced to by a nude Anita Berber), Morphium Kabarett is musically directed by Tracy Stark (“Superb, virtuosic pianist” - New York Post), and features the music of Hollaender, Weill, and Spoliansky, mixed with Kylie Minogue, the Supremes, and myriad unexpected others, in a neo-Weimar cabaret fantasia.
Morphium Kabarett is presented for the first time in Provincetown by the Afterglow Festival, on Tuesday, September 13 at 7PM, at the Crown & Anchor.

“Mr. Smith, a transplanted Australian who has lived in New York for nearly a decade, is a living artwork with a sculpted body and the haughty attitude of a beautiful young man (he’s in his early 30s) acutely aware of his value as a love object. Not for nothing did Mr. Smith suggest a male Marlene Dietrich.” Stephen Holden, The New York Times
