Cabaret Comedy, Part 1-England
From The Vanguard to Upstairs at the Downstairs, from The Bon Soir to The Duplex, comedy has always been a featured staple of cabaret show rooms across New York. Witty, irreverent, sometimes scandalous or subversive - comics have always found a welcome home in New York's cabaret culture.
Cabaret originated in Paris as a place for singers, artists, and composers to gather together and share ideas and compositions, a tradition which is alive and well today. W2W presents some of today's best singer-songwriters, excellent composers as well as accomplished performers - a chance to hear great performances of original songs.

Satire, Revolution, and Alt-Cabaret
Cabaret has had a long association with satire, revolution, and protest. More than just a polite entertainment, cabaret has evolved into a forum for exploration, exhortation, and bending the boundaries of performance art - from tap-dancing trombonists to skewering parodies to drag artists and beyond.
Todd Londagin, Taylor Mac, Cole Escola
Broadway and The American Songbook
Cabaret has always been indebted to the Broadway stage, whose contributions to the American Songbook have featured composers like George Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, Jules Styne, Cy Coleman, and Stephen Sondheim. Broadway performers continue to bring their interpretations to the cabaret world, in venues like 54 Below and the Allen Room.
