My 10 “Best” Cabaret Shows

My 10 “Best” Cabaret Shows

Attending various Cabaret shows throughout the years with a variety of friends I quickly learned that designating something as “The Best” is purely a subjective endeavor  Watching what I thought was at best a mediocre performance one evening I was surprised to hear  my friend announce at it’s conclusion, “wasn’t this the best show you’ve ever seen”?  My table mate happened to be a good friend of the performer so I guess she was viewing the performance through a different lens than mine. I’m far too friendly with most of these artists to be totally objective and as the saying goes…beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

That being said, but not wanting to be presumptuous, I do tend to lean towards the artists who have been blessed with abilities at birth that are impossible for regular humans to reach, and in addition have honed these talents through hard work to a high degree of virtuosity and creativity.  Ten artists that never fail to astound me…..Jason Robert Brown,  Ann Hampton Callaway, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Storm Large, John Pizzarelli/Jessica Molaskey, Clint Holmes, Marilyn Maye, Billy Stritch, Michael Feinstein, and KT Sullivan.  I hope I’m still friends with some very talented people that I couldn’t mention due to the publisher’s required 10 name limit but check my past reviews…..”you know who you are”.
