Cabaret NJT event will pay tribute to Broadway’s Jewish composers

For the second year, the New Jewish Theatre will hold Cabaret NJT, an evening of music and song paying tribute to “Jews on Broadway – mostly.” The event will be held at 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21 at the Mirowitz Performing Arts Center of the Staenberg Family Complex of the Jewish Community Center, 2 Millstone Campus Drive in Creve Coeur.

Performers — most with connections to previous NJT  productions — include some of St. Louis’ top Cabaret performers: Ben Nordstrom, Linda Kennedy, Johanna Elkana-Hale, Tim Schall and April Strelinger. The evening will be hosted by Edward Coffield.  

The event is a prelude to the NJT 2013-2014 season, which opens Oct. 3 with Neil Simon’s “The Good Doctor,” and moves through the season with other dramas and classics until the season closing comedy, “Old Jews Telling Jokes.”

General admission is $45 and includes complimentary drink and dessert buffet. A premium ticket package costs $120 for two tickets with preferred seating, dessert buffet and a bottle of Champagne for two.  Additional wine will be available for purchase.
