Cabaret Fest

September 8, 2010

Sept. 10-17
Cabaret at the Columbia Club

A visitor to town this week might think the Columbia Club on Monument Circle is the town’s busiest music showcase. On Friday and Saturday, a trio of Broadway and cabaret stars will present their “Three Men and a Baby … Grand” tribute to the Rat Pack. They’ll be followed by three nights of music showcases Sept. 13-15 featuring the likes of four-time Tony Award nominee Gregg Edelman and Broadway “Mamma Mia” star Karen Mason.

That’s not all. On the 14th, you can also see Karen Kohler’s interactive “History of Cabaret” show (which includes a dessert reception), catch hot jazz artist Jane Monheit on the 16th, and keep things going to the 17th for an evening of European cabaret and American pop with Kohler.

Why the musical convergence? Many of the acts are in town for the Midwest Arts Conference. Details on the open-to-the-public shows here.
