Saturday, July 7th – MAC, Bistro and Julie Wilson Award winning Cabaret & Broadway performer, Mr. T. Oliver Reid, will close out this year’s festival with his one-man show, Drop Me Off in Harlem. Mr. Reid has twelve Broadway shows to his credits including The 2018 Tony award winning Once On This Island, The shows New York engagements have included Lincoln Center’s Dizzy Club Coca-Cola, Birdland, Feinstein’s/54 Below and the Metropolitan Room. And now he’s sharing it with Dallas. He has directed and produced cabaret in NYC and the surrounding areas. He will be joined by Julius Rodriguez on piano.
This is the first year that we have sold tickets to the Festival but it is necessary to help offset the cost. I can guarantee you won’t find a better deal in town. Ticket prices are $15 per show OR the BEST DEAL, Dallas Cabaret Festival Pass for $30 which includes all 3 shows. Seating is general admission. Doors open at 7:00 and shows start at 7:30 each night.
As always, each night we will highlight a charitable organization and the work they are doing in the community. This year’s beneficiaries are:
This year we also want to support a new arts organization, Metropolitan Arts Media, Inc., a new non-profit company that runs the popular performing arts online magazine TheaterJones.com, which covers theater, dance, classical music, opera and comedy across North Texas; and plans to launch a separate site covering visual arts. MAM’s mission is to canvas the Dallas-Fort Worth arts scenes, using a stable of qualified and knowledgeable journalists and critics, keeping alive the needed arts journalism that has disappeared from mainstream media. Website coming soon. You can also follow Theater Jones for more info.
And, finally, we want to thank our sponsors who made not just the Dallas Cabaret Festival, but this entire season possible:
Bath House Cultural Center, Friends of the Bath House Cultural Center, The Office of Cultural Affairs
Brian Jansen, Jennifer Burr Altabef, Lekka Retail Concepts, Two and a Bottle, Burke and Jeanne Asher, Nicholas Even, Jeff Rane, Dr. Rodney Schpok, Lorlee Bartos, Jennifer Horst, C.C. Young Sr. Care Center, Theater Jones
