This is a special performance, as it will be my first back from my Disney Cruise Line job, and we will be video taping for posterity and marketing power. So we need a nice big audience to fill this amazing, beautiful large venue! Please come see what has been hailed as “the Manhattan Transfer for the New Millennium” (Times Square Chronicles) and help me celebrate my return to my beloved group.

About Marquee Five:
Hailed as “a breath of fresh air in the cabaret world” (BroadwayWorld.com) with “superb blend in song” (NiteLifeExchange.com), the group won the 2010 MAC Award for their debut show “We Can Make It: The Songs of Kander and Ebb” at the Metropolitan Room. They followed this in Fall, 2010 at Don’t Tell Mama with “8-Track Throwback,” a show Cabaret Scenes called “top-notch spectacular.” The group released an album recording of “8-Track Throwback” in early November, 2011 and debuted their new show “Broadway By The Letter: Act One” at the prestigious 54 Below in May of 2013.
