Cabaret to Broadway

Cabaret to Broadway

A GRAND NIGHT FOR SINGING was originally produced Off-Broadway as a nightclub Cabaret at “Rainbow and Stars,” which was located at the top of Rockefeller Center.


The Revue (conceived and directed by Walter Bobbie) showcases the music of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II.


On November 17, 1993, the show opened on Broadway, produced by Roundabout Theatre Company, at the Criterion Center Stage Right. The original production was nominated for two Tony Awards®, Best Musical and Best Book of a Musical, and the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revue.

A GRAND NIGHT FOR SINGING features innovative musical arrangements of tunes from nearly a dozen Rodgers & Hammerstein shows. Contemporary treatments include an Andrews Sisters-esque “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair,” a swingin’ rendition of  “Honeybun,” and a hot, jazzy arrangement of “Kansas City.” Hearing these tunes in a fresh “up to date” fashion further demonstrates how timeless the songs of R&H remain.

The Quality Hill Playhouse production of A GRAND NIGHT FOR SINGING plays April 22 – May 22.
