Cabaret Theatre moving to downtown's Columbia Club

The American Cabaret Theatre, now known as The Cabaret, announced Wednesday that it will be moving to a new, permanent home at the Columbia Club in downtown Indianapolis.

The troupe will relocate from its temporary location at the Connoisseur Room at 115 E. Ohio St. on Dec. 1, in time to present a holiday show that runs Dec. 10-12.

Dinner and overnight packages will be available at the Columbia Club. Theatergoers do not have to be members of the club, but incentives will be available to those who wish to join.

“This partnership with the Columbia Club will really take us to the next level,” Cabaret Managing Director Shannon Forsell said in a statement. “The most successful cabarets are housed in a club or hotel because the partnerships are such a win-win relationship.”

The financially struggling Cabaret exited its longtime home at the Athenaeum in January after running out of cash. Four of its six staff members were laid off. It had paid $100,000 a year to rent a 350-seat space at the historic Athenaeum that was rarely filled.

  1. I am also a "vet" of several Cirque shows and this one left me flat. It didn't have the amount of acrobatic stunts as the others that I have seen. I am still glad that I went to it and look forward to the next one but I put Varekai as my least favorite.

  2. Looking at the two companies - in spite of their relative size to one another -- Ricker's image is (by all accounts) pretty solid and reputable. Their locations are clean, employees are friendly and the products they offer are reasonably priced. By contrast, BP locations are all over the place and their reputation is poor, especially when you consider this is the same "company" whose disastrous oil spill and their response was nothing short of irresponsible should tell you a lot. The fact you also have people who are experienced in franchising saying their system/strategy is flawed is a good indication that another "spill" has occurred and it's the AM-PM/Ricker's customers/company that are having to deal with it.

  3. Daniel Lilly - Glad to hear about your points and miles. Enjoy Wisconsin and Illinois. You don't care one whit about financial discipline, which is why you will blast the "GOP". Classic liberalism.

  4. Isn't the real reason the terrain? The planners under-estimated the undulating terrain, sink holes, karst features, etc. This portion of the route was flawed from the beginning.

  5. You thought no Indy was bad, how's no fans working out for you? THe IRl No direct competition and still no fans. Hey George Family, spend another billion dollars, that will fix it.
