This Sunday, Sept. 4 Hell’s Kitchen’s very own Dalton’s Bar & Grill (611 9th Ave, at 43rd Street) will host the grand finale to its first annual “Dalton’s Got Talent” karaoke competition. Throughout the summer, 16 talented contestants have been voted by audience to advance to this Sunday’s finale. A panel of esteemed theater industry professionals will judge the event including Jim Caruso (“Cast Party” at Birdland), Robert Cuccioli (Jekyll & Hyde, Les Misérables, Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark), and Lulu Picart (upcoming Broadway revival of 1776) will present the “Dalton’s Got Talent” winner with a Grand Prize of $3000.
Jennifer Pluff (Executive Director of off-Broadway’s newest theater, Playhouse 46) serves as emcee of the weekly competition along with her husband, Ian Powers. (Pluff and Powers first met singing karaoke at Dalton’s Bar & Grill karaoke 13 years ago.)
All proceeds from the sales of Miller Lite and Coney Island Brewing company during the contest will be donated to the Entertainment Community Fund (formerly The Actors Fund),
