After a 20-year absence from the cabaret stage, MAC & Bistro Award winner JAMES BEAMAN returns: older, wiser, with a song in his heart and his filter decidedly off.

Reunited with his longtime Music Director, MAC & Bistro Award winner DAVID MAIOCCO, Beaman’s set list includes tunes by Sondheim, Coward, Kander & Ebb, Hamlisch, Gilbert & Sullivan, and many surprises, with multi-award winning MATT SCHARFGLASS on bass, and DAVID SILLIMAN on drums.

Broadway dancer, former Rockette, director and choreographer ANN COOLEY stages two numbers for this dazzling cabaret experience.

She has two podcasts on the go, a short film in post-production, appears in two episodes of a series to be broadcast and streamed on FX on Hulu this fall and she has several exciting music gigs coming up.
