Show: The ninth annual St. Louis Cabaret Conference was held July 28 through August 1, allowing students to take lessons from a variety of artists adept in the stylistic art form. Founded by Tim Schall and Sharon Hunter in 2006, the conference was expanded in 2012 by producer Schall to include the St. Louis Cabaret Festival, a series of cabaret performances occurring while the conference is under way.
St. Louis Cabaret Festival
Most fans of musical theater doubtless are familiar with Cabaret, the jaunty musical written by composer John Kander and lyricist Fred Ebb that focuses on the decadent lifestyle favored by the bohemians and artists who lived in Berlin in the post-World War I years shortly before Adolf Hitler and his Third Reich came to power.
As the summer winds down, many of St. Louis’ top arts organizations are ramping up a new season. We asked in-the-know arts professionals what they’re most looking forward to in the world of visual and performing arts.
