Society Cabaret goes to NYC
BROADWAY BASH 2022
SOCIETY CABARET AND LIVEN UP JOIN FORCES TO BRING YOU A TIMES SQUARE TRIP TO REMEMBER.
What is the best way to experience Broadway? In the company of a bunch of Broadway nerds that can't get enough of the rich history, the intoxicating talent, and the concentrated artistry that makes this corner of the world so very special. Here's what we have to offer.
Thursday March 24 - Get yourself to NYC (air fare not included) and check in at the new M Social Hotel. Google that and take a gander at the pics. I remember this space from when 'Dirty Dancing the musical' threw their party for the Spring Road Conference. Broadway Millennium has now taken over this hotel and done a revamp. Check out the bar space. This is going to be a great place to gather through out the weekend and dish about the Broadway shows we've just seen.
Imagine you've just seen Sutton and Hugh. You walk up and sit in one of these barstools overlooking Times Square, order a gin and tonic, then turn to the fellow theatre nerd next to you and wax quixotic about how this compares to Music Men that you've experienced before, what you thought of the barbershop quartet, or the pick-a-little ladies. This is our hotel!!
Then after you've checked in, later that evening --
We throw a "Welcome to Broadway" party at Sardis. THIS is going to be extra special cool. We want to run this kind of like the way we run our monthly open mic variety show "Curtain Call", so all you singers bring your songbooks. You'll get your shot to sing at Sardis!! It's almost like being on Broadway.
Friday March 25 - This day you have some free time; the dinner and show stuff doesn't happen till the evening. So sleep in, and be lazy - go do the Breakfast Buffet (open 7 - 11am so no need to rush). We'll have some suggestions for your day like a Central park walk or hike on the Highline, perhaps one of the bus tours around the island or a backstage tour of Radio City. Statue of Liberty anyone? Lot's to do in NYC.
Then it's the Friday restaurant experience at Victor's Café. Lot's of history here. Founded in 1963 this place is credited with introducing Cuban cuisine to the NYC theatre crowd.
After that we're off to Music Man with Sutton Foster and Hugh Jackman, at the Winter Garden right across from our hotel.
Saturday March 26 - In the morning you have a little time to do what you didn't get done on Friday. Was there something from the Breakfast Buffet that you didn't get yesterday? This morning is your second chance. Then we head to the Brooks Atkinson for a matinee showing of SIX. This is THE hot show on Broadway, fresh from London's west end about the six wives of Henry VIII. Do yourself a favor and find the cast recording on spotify or prime or whatever you use. Your welcome.
Then we experience Tony's Di Napoli. You better be hungry because this place REALLY knows how to feed us.
Then off to the Hudson Theater to see Sarah Jessica Parker and Mathew Broderick lock horns in Neil Simon's hilarious and poignant "Plaza Suite".
Sunday March 27 - We walk our way to Don't Tell Mama and take in the Broadway Boozy Brunch. This is always a big favorite way to finish off our Broadway Bacchanalia.
Not mentioned above (but probably the best part of the weekend) is all of us getting together for drinks after our shows and discussing what we've seen. Dish, compare, kvetch, brag . . . it's a Broadway Baby's Boon! So what does all this fun cost?
Prices are per person
The deposit is $500 per person, so if there are two of you, your total deposit is $1000. Seats for the shows are assigned in order of deposit received. So the earlier you make your deposit, the better your theatre seats will be.
Nov 1 2021 is the first payment. That's right, that date has passed, so I'll get you a first payment invoice as soon as I can turn it around.
Jan 1 2022 is the second payment due date.
All funds are 100% refundable until Jan 1, 2022, 50% refundable until Feb 15, 2022
Sunday Add On Option - Haven't quite had enough Broadway? Then the "Sunday Add-on Option" is for you. We will head to a Sunday Matinee Broadway show (what do you like? Waitress? Chicago? Are you a Phantom Phreak? We will have some suggestions of what else is HOT!)
Then dinner at Empire Steak House.
