PREVIOUS SEASON SHOWS? 
A number of readers and fans of the Sunday Cabaret Shows are
new this season and are asking about who has performed during our previous 8 seasons. I do not have web pages for seasons going back to the beginning but I do have them linked for these:
 
NO WEB PAGE FOR 2010, 2011, & 2012  
NO SHOWS SUMMER OF 2016 DUE TO THEATER RENOVATIONS
INTEREST LIST FOR UPCOMING SHOWS!
We already are receiving emails from performers that
are wanting dates for the upcoming 'High Season' that
begins in November and runs through April 2019.

If you are a professional performer with an existing 1 hour
cabaret style show with live piano accompaniment -
there is only one way to be considered

You need to send an email to Les Michaels at
les@lesmichaels.com

Please know we get twice as many requests than
there are dates available and they go in a little as one day  
so the sooner you send the email the better your chances.
