Classic Holiday Cabaret CDs: Cabaret Noel

December 16, 2007


Cabaret Noel was the first BC/EFA holiday compilation CD and it remains a classic.  The 2 CD album features a mix of performers from the Broadway stage and from the cabaret circuit doing a wide variety of material.  IT’s amazing to think that this is the first place I heard songs like All Those Christmas Cliches, Surabaya Santa, and I’m Wishing You A Drag Queen Christmas.
