Cabaret Fest opens Friday with Broadway Boy Jesse Nager — and friend

It’s Orlando Cabaret Festival time again, and we cabaret fans will be getting ourselves down to Mad Cow Theatre to hear some discoveries from the New York cabaret scene along with some swell local talent. Here’s news about the first weekend’s headliner:

Jesse Nager and Andrea Canny:

Jesse Nager

The Boys are back! Well, one of the boys … The Broadway Boys’ founder and artistic director, Jesse Nager is back in town – this time with a show of his own!

Jesse Nager is joined onstage by Andrea Canny … two of your Cabaret Favorites together at last!

A veteran of several Broadway shows and national tours, Jesse will sing all the best songs from these iconic shows — that belonged to other characters. The performance will feature music from Mary Poppins, Mamma Mia!, Good Vibrations, and many more.

Andrea Canny

No stranger to Orlando audiences after three appearances with the Broadway Boys, Jesse goes it alone with Songs I didn’t Get to Sing.

Jesse has sung with Mariah Carey, Shania Twain, and Jason Mraz and is also a member of the Broadway Inspirational Voices. Jesse is the artistic director of the Broadway Boys, a collection of New York tenors that add elements of pop/gospel/funk to traditional musical theater repertoire.

More shows announced for Cab Fest

Hiding away on Mad Cow’s website is the announcement of two more shows for the Orlando Cabaret Festival — Andrea Canny singing Frank Wildhorn and Kevin Kelly singing the music of Maltby & Shire.

I’m a huge Maltby & Shire fan, not so much for Wildhorn. But both Canny and Kelly are wonderful singers, and I’ll be happy to hear them do whatever they please. Plus, we get to hear accompanists Terry Thomas and John DeHaas.What could be bad?

Here are the dates, times and descriptions:
