Donald Smith Tribute

jpeg.jpeg

The cabaret world lost one of its greats earlier this year when Donald Smith passed away.  Smith was one of the great impressarios.  He helped launch the careers of so many top artists like Andrea Marcovicci, KT Sullivan.  And he was responsible for founding the Mabel Mercer Foundation and for launching the Cabaret Convention in New York.  (Those of you who have those great videos of Mercer can see Smith front and center appreciating every moment.)

Playbill has a terrific write-up of a memorial concert for Smith that was recently held at Town Hall.
