Go Out and See A Live Show!

Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it.” – Dennis P. Kimbro

Happy September 19!
September 19 is the 262nd day of the year. There are 104 days remaining until the end of the year.
Today, I am in the zone, connecting with my network and getting my goals met. Today, I thought I would focus on events/show/things that I'm excited about. As I sit down to begin today's blog, I'm listening to Mary Martin singing A Wonderful Guy from South Pacific on the Broadway channel on Sirius XM Radio. Get ready...Let's Celebrate!
A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to catch Stacy Sullivan's celebration of Cole Porter at The Beach Cafe.
She told us early on that this show came about when she was asked to appear at The Beach Cafe when they first opened. Mark Nadler, who was booking at the time, came up with a brilliant idea of having all of the artists booked celebrate Cole Porter on the occasion of his centennial.
Stacy had a very unique take on Porter, sharing his music and sharing with us her thoughts on how he was influenced by other music. I loved it. I hope she decides to record this show and please keep your eyes open for upcoming performances through her Website.

It is time, ladies and gents, to be GOIN' HOLLYWOOD. The shining new demo of the show by
Stephen Cole and David Krane is now available for your listening pleasure. We are so proud of our baby and hope you will love it too. Next stop?

Cabaret Cares is back kicking off 13 years with Joseph's Birthday celebration. 13 years ago Joseph decided rather than have a Birthday party or receive gifts, he would put together a show and raise money for children, teens, and youth living with HIV and AIDS in New York City. Joseph would then go on to start Help Is On The Way Today a non for profit organization that continues to work with these children. They provide Backpacks and school supplies for the kids in September, Gifts during the holidays, and other needs the children and families need for a better quality of life.
13 years and 186,000 later Cabaret Cares has helped and serviced over 600 children in New York City.
On September 24th at 7PM, some of Joseph's favorite performers from Broadway and Cabaret will perform in a celebration for his birthday! And he hopes you will join him as he turns 45.
Doors open at 6:30 Showtime 7PM
$15 Ticket plus a 2 Bev Min
Tickets are $20 at the door. Order HERE
