What is Cabaret?
Kind of a nightclub act, often with a theme. Where a singer and musician(s), usually a pianist, explore and interpret songs and tell stories in an original and personal way. A theme could be songs of an individual composer or lyricist, a biographical or an autobiographical journey. This is an art form that began in Paris, was developed in Germany, and later was embraced in America. Today it has evolved as an art form that draws from all music, but often from what is called, The Great American Songbook. An artist can choose any topic, or non at allstringing songs together that weave another portrait, inviting you on a musical journey and returning you perhaps a little more alive!!
BARBARA BRUSSELL has appeared on stages from coast to coast, including the famed Oak Room at Algonquin Hotel in New York City, and soloed with two symphonies. Barbara has been aptly described by New York critic Roy Sander of BackStage, Once in a blue moon an artist comes along whose talent is so striking that nothing less than shouting it from the rooftop will do! And, Barbara epitomizes the art of cabaret singing...a consummate singer/actress.. Stephen Holden of the New York Times wrote, Projecting an off-kilter blend of zaniness and pathos that suggests the unpredictable mood swings of a Renée Zellweger character, Ms. Brussell ... is a quick-change artist who injects an element of surprise into everything she sings. ... genuinely real and touchingThe California dreamer and the New York sophisticate join hands. Rex Reed, from The New York Observer, She is real, she is tender, she is wacky...She stamps songs with a branding iron of her own authentic invention...makes you feel like youre hearing them for the first time. Youd be a fool to miss it!. In a Cabaret world Barbara Brussell is a dream come true.
