I was very proud and excited to be invited to perform at the Mabel Mercer Foundation's 27th annual Cabaret Convention at Jazz at Lincoln Centre this week, and more honored still to appear in the New York Times alongside cabaret greats such as Karen Oberlin, Vivian Reed, and KT Sullivan, among many, wonderful others!
"Tuesday’s gala discreetly slipped in contemporary flourishes that included “Helpless,” a song from “Hamilton,” and an appearance by Kim David Smith, a provocative performer in early David Bowie-like makeup, wearing a harness and singing the Marlene Dietrich song “Illusions,” from “A Foreign Affair.”" Stephen Holden, The New York Times
I'm also extremely excited to present my final Morphium Kabarett for 2016, having enjoyed a summer-fall fun at the gloriously intimate Pangea since May 2, 2016. Taking the stage with the talented Tracy Stark (music director) and Skip Ward (bass), October 24, 7PM will be a further exploration of the glitter, doom, and decadence of 1920’s Berlin. Named for the sensual, Spoliansky-penned waltz (famously danced to by a nude Anita Berber), 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) October 24, 7PM. $25 General Admission (purchase pre-sale tickets online for just $20). Tickets purchased at the door are cash only.
