100 YEARS OF CHICAGO CABARET PART 1 Cabaret Burlesque & Great American Songbook
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!
