A Nonprofit Cabaret Venue

Every performer knows how it feels to have an unsuccessful audition. The feeling of embarrassment and self criticism over where they may have gone wrong. Well, this performance is a chance for them to redeem themselves of their past failures, to recount their previous woes, and then wow us on stage. They may have had a botched audition or two, but this performance is their chance to say “Just look at me now,” and show how far they’ve come.

Join us for a night filled with stories from some of your favorite performers, and to see that the road to success is filled with many many failed auditions!
