Chicago has a unique place in the history of cabaret, being the first American city to nurture hundreds of clubs with the intimate and often improvised entertainment first found in Paris in the 1880s. This two-part series is free to the public and made possible by a grant from Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events.

Never before has there been a collection of Chicago‘s African American singers, Parisian Cabaret, LGBTQIA artists, and the classic American standards all coming together to celebrate 100 Years of Chicago Cabaret!


Part 2 October 3, 2021 BLACK VOICES IN CABARET & THE FRENCH CONNECTION

Where it all began...in Paris and Chicago, focusing on African American performers and venues that have substantially influenced the American style of Cabaret. We will explore Paris Noir (Black performers in France) and the exchange of cultures.

Cast: Cynthia Clarey, Evelyn Danner, Patrick Davis, Elizabeth Doyle, Sean Harris, Claudia Hommel, Lynne Jordan, Ava Logan, Tammy McCann, LaShera Moore and David Stephens

Directed by Daniel Johnson and David Stephens, with Music Direction by Elizabeth Doyle

Nikki is thrilled to return to Davenport's for her third solo show, "I Want" Songs. Inspired by the idea of "asking for what you want and being prepared to get it," she'll take the audience on a journey through her own hypothetical future, setting up her dream roles, career aspirations, and ideal relationships through song.

Previously in the back room, she's talked about her anxieties in Lightly Medicated and sung some Great American Songbook Classics in Songs You Didn't Know You Knew. Nikki is a singer and actor around the Chicago area who performs in musical theatre whenever she gets the chance. When not working her day job as Marketing Manager of an e-commerce accounting firm, she's streaming Broadway cast albums in her apartment or taking a really long meandering walk through the north side of Chicago. She hopes to someday be able to afford a cat.
