    Thanks for bringing this wonderful piece to our attention, Michael! I would have missed it otherwise! And always nice to see Jessica Molaskey get a nod.

    Maybe part of cabaret’s appeal is the fact that it flies under the radar of ‘popular culture.’ Who wants to be embraced by the Simons of this world, anyway? I like thinking of Holden’s “romantic cubbyhole” as part speak-easy.

    Is it just me or is the caption to that super picture missing? Help! I recognize only karen akers!

    Jill, thanks for pointing ou the omission. Here’s what should be a caption:
    Sidney Myer, KT Sullivan, Klea Blackhurst, Marian Seldes, Julie Wilson, Kaen Mason, Karen Akers, Eric Comstock, Baby Jane Dexter, Karen Oberlin, Will Nunziata, Lumiri Tubo, Anthony Nunziata, and Barbara Carroll.
