Marilyn Maye (54 Below)



By Sandi Durell


Once again, this year’s 29th Cabaret Convention proved a huge success of four evenings filled with exquisite talent and tributes. Congratulations KT Sullivan, Artistic Director! So many of the talents continue to fill our cabarets and nightclubs along with new stars on the horizon. Here’s just a short list!

 **Special shout-out to cabaret favorite host, writer, producer, keeper of the flame – Scott Siegel as he recovers from his injury and surgery. We all wish you well and a quick recovery. The community misses you, but the shows go on!! That’s why you’re amazing!
