Morphium Kabarett at Pangea

  • Pangea 178 2nd Avenue New York, NY, 10003 United States (map)

Described as “the David Bowie of cabaret” (, host Kim David Smith conjures the glitter, doom, and decadence of 1920’s Berlin with “Morphium Kabarett,” a weekly, Monday night salon featuring special musical guests from the worlds of opera, cabaret, pop, and beyond.

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 at Pangea (178 2nd Ave, NYC) July 22, 8PM.

Check out our stellar reviews from the May season of Morphium Kabarett:

Morphium Kabarett Review: The New York Times

“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

“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
