"James Beaman is being one hundred percent authentic to himself and his artistry, and that is the most important part of any cabaret: authenticity.”
—Stephen Mosher, BroadwayWorld.com
"This was a wise and varied program of songs that clearly reflected the gentleman in charge.”
—Bart Greenberg, Cabaret Scenes
After a 20-year absence from the cabaret stage, MAC & Bistro Award winner JAMES BEAMAN returns: older, wiser, with a song in his heart and his filter decidedly off.
Celebrating 33 years in show biz, including a decade as one of cabaret's finest female impersonators, Jamie brings his unique and tartly critical point of view on the cultural zeitgeist.
Reunited with his longtime Music Director, MAC & Bistro Award winner DAVID MAIOCCO, Beaman's set list includes tunes by Sondheim, Coward, Kander & Ebb, Hamlisch, Gilbert & Sullivan, and many surprises.
Broadway dancer, former Rockette, director and choreographer ANN COOLEY stages two numbers for this dazzling cabaret experience.
Joining Maestro David Maiocco are multi-award winning MATT SCHARFGLASS on bass, and DAVID SILLIMAN on drums.
The evening will feature a video retrospective of Jamie’s drag career, with a studio track of "This is Me," adapted by Beaman and Maiocco, from the hit musical "Everybody’s Talking About Jamie."
