With the 2018 Midterm elections on the horizon, New York-based Cabaret producer, performer, promoter, and former reviewer (for Cabaret Scenes Magazine and BroadwayWorld.com) Stephen Hanks has decided to combine his passion for cabaret and politics and channel that energy into action on behalf of the Democratic and Progressive candidates running for the US Senate, the US Congress, and some state offices in November.
To help him with his “Campaigning,” Hanks has recruited All-Star Casts of Cabaret performers who are equally passionate about motivating people to “Ride the Blue Wave” in 2018. The August 16 (7 pm) show at Don’t Tell Mama (343 West 46th St, between 8th & 9th Ave) will star Award-Winning performers Julie Reyburn (representing Arizona US Senate Candidate Krysten Sinema), Sarah Rice (representing Maryland State House of Delegates Candidate Heather Bagnall), Janice Hall (representing Georgia Candidate for Governor Stacey Abrams), Mary Sue Daniels (representing Montana Incumbent Senator Jon Tester), Katie Dunne McGrath (representing Iowa US Congress Candidate J.D. Scholten), and rising Cabaret star Sierra Rein (representing Virginia US Congress Candidate Abigail Spanberger). Matthew Martin Ward serves as Musical Director. For reservations, call 212-757-0788 or go to Don’t Tell Mama’s website.
The cover charge for these shows is $30 (with a two-drink minimum, cash only) and proceeds from each show—in addition to matching funds–will be donated to the candidates represented by the performers in that show. To date, the two shows have generated almost $3,000 to split among 11 candidates. For more information and interview requests, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
