Speakeasy Moderne: Cabaret
On Thursday, June 20 at 9pm, award-winning recording artist and songwriter Todd Alsup and Dina Fanai (Trans-Siberian Orchestra) will guest star at NYC's sexiest party Speakeasy Moderne, where the audience gets swept up in a world where singers enchant, flappers flirt and dancers dazzle... Playing STAGE 72 each month and hosted by "Official Hank" Stampfl, it's an unforgettable evening featuring an intoxicating blend of Jazz Age Manhattan, vaudeville, cabaret and a touch of burlesque.
Todd Alsup recently won the 2012 OutMusic Award for "Pop Song of the Year" for his single "The Only Thing." Todd's albums "Facts and Figures" and "Todd Alsup" (both available on iTunes) have garnered positive press from major outlets including Billboard Magazine and his songs have been featured on MTV and PBS.
With songs from the Tin Pan Alley era to the Golden Age of Broadway to today's pop charts and performances from special guest singers, dancers and burlesque stars, the show puts a modern twist on the illicit speakeasy, where high brow and low brow entertainers and audiences mingle, indulging in drink, song and dance. Additional upcoming show dates are July 25 at 9pm and August 29 at 9pm; evening and cocktail wear is encouraged and audience members are asked to dress in their best 1920's wardrobes.
