Le Cabaret Mlange at Cloud 9
In 2001, gender-bending chanteuse Jeffrey Marsh began collaboration with guitarist Rick Sorkin to create a music-based theatrical act designed to blur classic cabaret "professional showmanship" with contemporary style. In addition to celebrating the sounds of Kurt Weill, Bertolt Brecht, Kandor & Ebb, Lou Reed, and The Beatles, this one-of-a-kind twenty-first century new-wave cabaret also writes and performs their own original material.
After a short time, a devoted following arose to support both Marsh and Sorkin. Radio personality and Peabody Award-winning producer Robert Drake had a eureka moment when he saw the act, and he immediately located an extravagant venue atop a swank creperie that would become the perfect backdrop for Le Cabaret Mlange.
Within a month, Marsh and Sorkin were booked weekly, and consistently drew audiences looking for something more than the standard fare. Rounded out by Noah Farber on piano and Jefferson Kidd on drums, Le Cabaret Mlange continued to blend traditional 20th century French and German cabaret with musical theater selections, pop music deconstruction, comedy, and audience interaction in a new and exciting way.
Le Cabaret Mlange will perform at Cloud 9 on Wednesday, July 20, as a benefit for the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center. For information, see page 9, or call Cloud 9 at 226-1999.
