IMPORTANT NEWS FROM/ABOUT CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE

ONLY 31 TICKETS LEFT FOR 18th BIRTHDAY SHOW JULY 9th
*** CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE SPECIAL EVENT ***
Already signed on to perform as of today are 2008-MAC AWARD winner Phil Bond, Edd Clark, Hector Coris, Cynthia Crane, 2008-MAC AWARD winner John De Marco, 2008-MAC AWARD winner Eric Michael Gillett, David Gurland, Teresa Fischer, Matt Leahy, Joyce Moody, Krisanthi Pappas, 2008 MAC/HANSON AWARD winner Maureen Kelley Stewart and Alysha Umphress. 2008-MAC AWARD winner Miles Phillips, as the JEFF MATSON AWARD winner, and 2008-MAC AWARD winner Tracy Stark, as the DOTTIE BURMAN AWARD winner have also been invited to perform.

The party celebrates the start of the new 2008-2009 membership year which officially begins July 6th - the date in 1990 when the first CABARET HOTLINE (print edition) was published (we were first on the web with cabaret news - since 1997!). I The theme of the show is: TURNING 18 - OLD ENOUGH TO CHOOSE! (no politics, please). The purpose of the show and the membership drive is to raise the funds necessary to keep the website and the newsletter from closing down during the June-July-August period when new banner advertising drops to close to zero.

We already have sold 54 of the 85 seats available. I don't want you to miss out, since with just 31 seats to sell, and such a great lineup of performers, I predict a sellout in the week or so. Please don't call THE BEECHMAN - they are not taking reservations for this event. NO TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE THE DAY OF THE SHOW (even if we have seats left to sell)! NO COMPS.

Tickets are just $10 - but must be purchased along with a 2008-2009 membership: $30 for a SILVER combo; $$85 for a GOLD combo; $250 CRYSTAL membership gets you 2 free tickets. If you can make it to the show and haven't ordered your ticket yet, this would be a perfect time to join as a member or renew your membership and get your ticket at the same time! Just go to http://www.svhamstra.com/thankyou1tkt.shtml to place your order. Once more: SEATING IS LIMITED TO 85 - your reservation is not assured until payment is made (that's why we recommend using PayPal).

If you can't attend and wish to send congratulations (or if you have a show or CD to promote) you can support the event by purchasing an ad in the program booklet - costs start at just $20. Just go to http://www.svhamstra.com/thankyou1prog.shtml . Deadline for ads is June 24th.

THE CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE 18th BIRTHDAY PARTY is sponsored in part by 2008-MAC AWARD winner Suzanne Carricco (http://www.suzannecarrico.com/ ), Raissa Katona Bennett (http://www.raissa.info/ ), MIRANDA MUSIC (http://www.mirandamusic.com/ ), Sandi Durell (http://www.timelessdivas.com/ ), Joyce Moody (http://www.joycemoody.com/ ) and Eric Michael Gillett (http://www.ericmichaelgillett.com/ ) plus 2 additional anonymous sponsors.

ABOUT CABARET NEWS IN THE NEWSLETTER AND ON THE WEBSITE
How do you get an item posted in the CABARET NEWS section of the CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE website, in the DATEBOOK/DIARY and in the twice-weekly newsletter? Just e-mail a press release of at least four or five paragraphs, giving the complete information on your show, CD release or other cabaret related event. Include photos in jpg or gif format if available. Please send complete information - and do not merely e-mail a copy of your flier or a reference to a website. If you don't have a press release, just click here: http://www.svhamstra.com/PressRelease1.shtml and fill out the information as completely as possible - or use the items asked for as a guide to the information I need. Just send in your press release or listings request in simple txt format if possible, and send any photos as attachments, not imbedded within the e-mail. The more information the better.

Because of the large number of items received, we can only use news of event just once, so we try not to get too far ahead in the news. There are a few exceptions to the "just once" rule: If the event is advertised on the website it will be repeated in every issue of the newsletter; If the event offers a discount to members of CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE it will be included in each MID-WEEK issue of the newsletter; Major benefits where ALL proceeds are given to the charity named will be mentioned in every issue as well as major cabaret events like cabaret festivals and galas; We also include at least once each week those regular (monthly, weekly, etc.) events with guests who change each performance, like SETH'S BROADWAY CHATTERBOX, BOB EGAN'S MONDAY SHOWCASE and the like.


HERE & THERE
Just a reminder for folks in the USA - Today is Memorial Day and some cabaret and piano bar schedules may be amended or changed. Traffic patterns also change - give yourself extra time to get to your destination and phone ahead. And with folks on holiday at a time when fuel prices have hit an all time high, many looking for live entertainment events may start looking for events closer to home. Now more than ever, make reservations for cabaret events you plan to see - and arrive on time. You reservation may be worthless once the show starts and your seats are given to folks who didn't make reservations.


GOING - GOING - ALMOST GONE! 54 tickets have been sold (as of 9:00 am today) for our 18th BIRTHDAY PARTY at THE LAURIE BEECHMAN to be held on Wednesday, July 9th starting a 7:00 pm. This means only 31 seats remain. NO TICKETS WILL BE SOLD ON THE DAY OF THE SHOW - you must have a paid ticket to attend the show (no comps). All tickets sold this year include a 2008-2009 membership - SILVER MEMBER/TICKET combo is $30 and GOLD MEMBER/TICKET combo is $85 - which means that the actual cost of the ticket is $10. Please remember, there is a $15 food/drink minimum at THE BEECHMAN. For more information, see this link: http://www.svhamstra.com/NewsCABHT080709Bday18a.shtml

Just in case you are confused, last year we sold combo SILVER tickets for $40 and regular tickets for $35. This year combo SILVER tickets are just $30 - $10 less than last year, and $5 less than last years non-membership ticket. We are not selling any regular non-membership tickets this year. GOLD combo tickets cost $85 (last year they cost $95). This reduced ticket price is made possible because of the generous arrangements offered by Phil Bond and Kenny Bell at THE BEECHMAN.

THE CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE 18th BIRTHDAY PARTY is sponsored in part by 2008-MAC AWARD winner Suzanne Carricco (http://www.suzannecarrico.com/ ), Raissa Katona Bennett (http://www.raissa.info/ ), MIRANDA MUSIC (http://www.mirandamusic.com/ ), Sandi Durell (http://www.timelessdivas.com/ ), Joyce Moody (http://www.joycemoody.com/ ) and Eric Michael Gillett (http://www.ericmichaelgillett.com/ ) plus 2 additional anonymous sponsors.


When you've been covering cabaret for nearly 18 years, and going to cabaret shows for an additional 10 or 15 more, you begin to build up a lot of memories of performers of the past - and the present. It is always a thrill to receive a press release or read a news item somewhere about a performer that "you knew when." I am particularly excited when I see a performance by someone I saw make their NYC cabaret debut - folks like Marcus Simeone, Jeanne MacDonald, Scott Coulter, Lisa Asher, Frank Dain, Klea Blackhurst, Sue Matsuki, Karen Saunders, David Gurland, Joan Crowe, Annie Hughes, Tom Andersen, Jason Robert Brown, Ricky Ritzel (yes, I am that old), and so many more. They were new on the scene back then and now, at least in the NYC cabaret arena, are established and well known (and highly lauded) performers.

Lucille Carr-Kaffashan is in that group as well - performers who I have seen grow, flourish and achieve great things in this art form. So I was particularly pleased to catch her show "Finding Home" at DON'T TELL MAMA last week. Lucille made her debut at MAMA'S in 1999 and it was very fitting and appropriate for her to return to MAMA'S with this presentation of songs about returning to one's roots, revisiting the past, and discovering that after all is said and done, it is home (wherever that may be) where one finds comfort and love. The new cabaret room at MAMA'S was the perfect setting for this cozy, heartwarming show - and David Brunetti's arrangements of Lucille's song choices - many on them sung in medley - gave the show a true feeling of security and "homeyness". Lucille's confident and true vocals and her tender interpretations made for one of those cabaret shows that you leave believing that it was created just for you - and the other folks in the audience just happened to be there. Especially touching were Lucille's tender renditions of "Sweet Dreams" by John Bocchino, and Annie Dinerman's "Child in Me Again." Lucille has one more show in this series, on Thursday, May 29th at 8:30 pm. Highly recommended.


John Hoglund reports that he is recovering quickly at home from his recent hospital stay. He was developing a benefit show to be presented in June or July, but has decided to reschedule "Listen to Her Heart: The Songs of Nancy LaMott" on behalf of BROADWAY CARES/EQUITY FIGHTS AIDS (http://www.bcefa.org/ ) to later in the year - new date & and details to be announced. The event will celebrate Nancy's unprecedented breakthrough to #12 on the Jazz Billboard charts with her beautiful rendition of "Ask Me Again" from the newly released CD/DVD set (LML Music) - twelve years after her passing, produced by David Friedman. John wrote that the event will include past MAC winners and Broadway artists associated with Nancy who frequently lent her voice for many Broadway Cares events.


Having a show or cabaret event? Is your show listed on the CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE website and/or the newsletter? There is no charge for your show to be listed - you don't even have to be a member! Remember, unseen and untold means unsold. You don't even need a press agent to prepare your press release - just go to http://www.svhamstra.com/PressRelease1.shtml and fill out the information as completely as possible


There was a street fair on Avenue C yesterday - celebrating the annual LOWER EAST SIDE PUERTO RICAN FESTIVAL, just around the corner from my apartment, and running up Avenue C from 6th Street to 13th Street. There were food carts (as Michael Brill would say) "serving food kept at unsafe temperatures," and hundreds of vendors selling everything from t-shirts to religious medals. There even was a section for the kids with what appeared to be large balloons filled with plastic balls that kids could climb inside and prance around in. And there was music. Several live bands. Lots of music. Lots of very loud music. Lots of very loud samba, mambo, reggaeton, urban, salsa, tangos, merengue, mexicana, and more. Not a Cole Porter or Johnny Mercer tune to be heard. And the people up and down the avenue were rejoicing, dancing and swaying to the tunes. It was noise - but truly a joyful noise.


If you can't attend our 18th BIRTHDAY SHOW on July 9th, (or if you have a show or CD to promote, or want to send congratulations on the birthday or to our award winners) you can support the event by purchasing an ad in the program booklet (costs start at just $20). Just go to http://www.svhamstra.com/thankyou1prog.shtml and fill in the size ad you wish to purchase and I will send you a PayPal invoice (we prefer PayPal - the safest way to transmit money via the internet). Deadline for ads is June 24th.


Once again I tried to cover all the new cabaret related news items in the listing section above - items from previous newsletters can be found in the DIARY/DATEBOOK section on the website at http://www.svhamstra.com/CabaretEventListing.shtml . I your news item has not yet appeared it could be because we haven't reached your performance week yet - we try to write of events taking place in the next 3 weeks or so, since items only appear once in the newsletter (unless it is a regular event featuring different performers each week, a banner advertiser, a benefit, or offers a CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE discount).

Oh yes, we have one or two releases that came in today or yesterday that we haven't gotten to look over yet - plus a few that do not contain vital information we need - like venue address & phone number, showtime, etc.


Time to finish and get to my nap - I am off to catch Suzanne Carrico's new show tonight at 7:00 pm at the METROPOLITAN ROOM. Suzanne won the 2008 MAC AWARD - FEMALE DEBUT for her exciting first show last year - I am truly looking forward to what she has planned for tonight.


And that is just about the way it was.

Until Thursday, then.

Hugs & Stuff,

STU
