Cabaret has been at the heartbeat of Chicago's nightclub scene for more than a century. Come hear blues, jazz, American songbook, burlesque, French music, pop, comedy and Broadway by some of Chicago's finest artists during the first-ever Chicago Cabaret Week, May 6-16, 2022.

This series features 15 shows in a variety of music venues around Chicago. All performances are ticketed between $15 and $30. A complete schedule and ticket information available at www.chicagocabaretweek.org .

"For fans of cabaret as well as those who have never been to a show, this is a great opportunity to experience a wide-variety of some of the idiom's best artists," says Anne Burnell, President of Chicago Cabaret Professionals.

The venues are intimate spaces, including small theaters, restaurants, and clubs—many featuring cabaret shows throughout the year—such as The Haven in Bronzeville, Beverly Art Center, Davenport's, Venus Cabaret Theatre, Le Piano, Old Town School of Folk Music, Newport Theater, Fulton Street Collective, Epiphany Center for the Arts, and The Hideout.

"What people love about this unique art form is that it's up close and personal. Ever since American cabaret had its start in Chicago in the early 1900s, cabaret has embraced all people from around the world," explains Claudia Hommel, Executive Director of Working In Concert.

A collaboration of cabaret organizations

Several cabaret organizations have come together as a team—Acts Of Kindness Cabaret, Chicago Cabaret Professionals, The Cabaret Project, and Working In Concert (Cabaret Connexion)—to present a cohesive series akin to Chicago's Restaurant Week or Theatre Week, highlighting the city's vibrant cultural arts scene. "The idea really took off when the city's tourism bureau, Choose Chicago, became our principal marketing partner," explains Hilary Ann Feldman of Acts Of Kindness Cabaret.

Originally slated for 2020, Chicago Cabaret Week was to be part of the city's designated Year Of Chicago Music celebrating the city's rich musical legacy. According to Kyle Hustedt, director of The Cabaret Project, "Our city is uniquely situated to create a cabaret scene of so many musical genres. We're encouraging people to explore the May 2022 schedule to find shows to meet their taste and 'Get Carried Away by Chicago Cabaret."
