Eartha Kitt is honored at the 2006 Nightlife Awards, the ONLY All Performance/No Acceptance Speeches Awards Show. A celebration of New York City's great cabaret, comedy, and jazz clubs, the Nightlife Awards features performances from the absolute best of New York City's nightclub performers. More than two dozen critics and experts vote on the best performances of the year -- and the winners, rather than make acceptance speeches, perform to show why they were chosen. Now in its fourth year, the 2006 Nightlife Awards has been called "A joy to behold" by Variety; "An epic night of grand entertainment" by American Theater Web; "A year's worth of entertainment dished up in one big banquet" by Curtain Up; and "An avalanche of entertainment" by the Wolf Entertainment Guide. The Nightlife Awards is conceived and produced by author/critic Scott Siegel, who, in just five years, has created Town Hall's popular and critically acclaimed Broadway by the Year series, established the annual smash sellouts called Broadway Unplugged, and just recently won new acclaim from the NY Times for creating, writing, and hosting Town Hall's First Annual Broadway Cabaret Festival. Stephen Holden of The Times wrote, "Mr. Siegel is an imaginative producer whose swift, exciting programs don't waste a minute." The 2006 Nightlife Awards is sponsored, in part, by TheaterMania.com, Edythe Kenner, Jill & Irwin Cohen, Edith & Ervin Drake, Peter & Barbara Leavy, Thoroughbred Records, and more. Limited tickets are available to the after party for an additional $50. For mail order tickets and tickets to the after-party, contact [email protected] or call 212-365-4345.
