I'm very excited to announce the further extension of my musical salon, "Morphium Kabarett!" Premiering on May 2nd at NYC's premier intimate nightspot, Pangea, we were thrilled to receive extremely positive reviews, and packed houses, leading to further dates throughout June and July. We are now extending again to September 22 and 29, and October 6 and 24, all at 7PM!


REVIEW: "Morphium Kabarett" Explores A Gay Man's Erotic Life

"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. 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” (, and labeled "a male Marlene Dietrich" by the New York Times, host and curator Kim David Smith conjures the glitter, doom, and decadence of 1920’s Berlin with “Morphium Kabarett,” an intimate salon featuring special musical guests from the worlds of opera, cabaret, pop (and beyond), with previous guests including: the legendary Joey Arias, countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo, supreme Piaf évocateur Gay Marshall, NYC Cabaret royalty KT Sullivan, Australian cabaret/opera star Ali McGregor, and downtown darlings Erin Markey, Jack Ferver, Amber Martin, Todd Murray, Danielle Gabiniowski and Molly Pope, among many, wonderful others. 

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) September 22 and 29, and October 6 and 24, all at 7PM.
