A new musical series, "Cabaret on the Hudson," kicks off Monday, October 27 at the Irvington Town Hall Theater. The shows will feature three outstanding cabaret performers or small groups, each bringing a 25 minute sampling of their New York City cabaret shows to Westchester, NY. The featured performers for the first of four upcoming "Cabaret on the Hudson" shows during the 2014-2015 season will be Kevin Spirtas, Adam B. Shapiro and Karen Oberlin/Sean Harkness.
Spirtas is best known for his portrayal of Dr. Craig Wesley, a character he played for over seven years on NBC's Days of our Lives. Spirtas' career began, at 18, when he landed his first professional job as Mike ("I Can Do That") Costa, in Michael Bennett's Broadway seminal musical "A Chorus Line." Spirtas has also starred on Broadway and Regional tours including "Hairspray," "Meet Me In St. Louis," "Company," "Damn Yankees" and "Into The Woods." For the past two years he has starred in the Indie Series Award-winning web series, Hustling. A tribute to Spirtas' high-octane talent came in 2003 when he was cast as the stand-by for Hugh Jackman in Broadway's smash hit musical "The Boy From Oz."
"Cabaret on the Hudson" will be hosted by Corinna Sowers Adler and will feature Benet Braun on piano.
Tickets are $20 each in advance or $23 at the door and are available by calling 914-591-6602 or by visiting www.irvingtontheater.com.
The remaining "Cabaret on the Hudson" shows will run on December 8, February 16 and April 13.
