Carolyn Montgomery and Reveille Productions present Roasts, Toasts and Tributes, celebrating some of New York's finest and most beloved cabaret personalities.
MAC, Bistro and Nightlife Award winning performer Carolyn Montgomery hosts the series, accompanied by co-hosts Jay Rogers (multiple MAC and Bistro winner and Nominee for a Drama Desk Award for his starring role in When Pig's Fly) and Julie Reyburn (MAC, Bistro and Nightlife Award winner). Musical direction is by Mark Janas.
The inspiration for this series is cabaret icon and long time booking manager at Don't Tell Mama, Sidney Myer. Myer's support, enthusiasm and energetic contributions to the world of cabaret have consistently sustained this fragile and very special performance genre. The Roasts, Toasts and Tributes series will award one person (or couple) per month with the Sidney Myer Award for Excellence in Cabaret, (The "Sidney"). The proceeds from each show are donated to the charity or organization of the recipient's choice.
The schedule of shows is as follows:
Jamie deRoy February 26
Barbara and Scott Siegel March 26
Michael Nelsen April 30
Julie Wilson May 21
Jim Caruso June 25
Sidney Myer July 16
