Cabaret at the Castle Schedule of Shows
Magic Castle has Cabaret at the Castle Nights of Great Performances
The Cabaret at the Castle shows are entertaining nights at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood. On a regular basis, the shows offer a variety of cabaret acts by a cornucopia of performers. Nightclub veterans as well as budding young stars get to grab the microphone and let loose in the spotlight in an intimate and elegant setting.
The world’s most famous club for magicians and magic enthusiasts, has flung opened the doors of the Castle’s Inner Circle room to showcase the sensational talent. And Cabaret at the Castle is quickly becoming the hot new place to play and be seen.
Prior to her Dancing With The Stars gig, Florence Henderson strutted her stuff with a Cabaret at the Castle show, which was a stroll down memory lane with songs and stories about her life and career.
The Brady Bunch’s perfect mom, Henderson put on a great show, as did the legendary Carol Channing, Laugh-In’s Jo Anne Worley, and composer Charles Fox (Killing Me Softly With His Song). Kathryn Crosby did her musical tribute to Bing Crosby, and we can look forward to another Crosby show around the holidays.
Recently the hot, ultra-talented Telly Leung brought his Who Loves Ya Baby night of great music to the Cabaret. And charismatic Erich Bergen, from the cast of Jersey Boys and TV’s Gossip Girl, wowed the crowds there. So did Ilene Graff with her composer husband Ben Lanzarone on piano.
Miranda, the comical Internet singer who went viral, also did her outrageous Miranda Sings show.
Upcoming, Cabaret at the Castle’s producer and host Matt Patton announced “Jim Caruso’s Cast Party” is coming Oct. 6 & 7, and back again Dec. 8 & 9, due to the popular demand of their sold out shows.
The best way to describe the Cast Party show is to tell you to imagine Broadway’s best having a soiree where everyone takes turns getting up to perform.
Musical genius Billy Stritch holds court at the piano with musical accompaniment for the entertainers. And Jim Caruso keeps the fun-filled impromptu variety show moving along.
It’s been the toast of Manhattan for several years at the legendary Birdland. And now Caruso is bringing the show to the Cabaret at the Castle for some special engagements.
On Oct. 10 and 11, Sharon McNight will perform highlights from her off-Broadway hit show Red Hot Mama. In the show McNight brings the story of the legendary Sophie Tucker to life. Tucker’s hit songs are belted out for the delight of the Cabaret audiences, including “You Gotta See Your Mama Everynight,” “There’ll Be Some Changes Made,” “Darktown Strutter’s Ball,” “I Don’t Want to Get Thin,” “Hula Lou,” “The One I Love Belongs to Somebody Else,” and “The Man I Love.”
On Nov. 2 & 3 Jake Broder will be back with the jive-talking Royal Hipness Lord Buckley show. It is an unbelievable act that has Broder as an incarnation of the 1950s cult lounge performer Lord Buckley, the late beat philosopher who was super-cool.
Jake Broder & Matt Patton
A hot-jazz trio backs Broder as he resurrects spoken-word riffs on subjects such as the Swinging Pied Piper, Jesus of Nazareth (“The Nazz”), and the Gettysburg Address. It brings back the hip beatnik days that were solid fun times.
Hosting the always fun Cabaret shows, Matt Patton said, “We love to feature a variety of performers in an intimate and elegant environment.” That’s the shows at the Magic Castle’s Inner Circle.
