OK, so the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts is actually calling its 2009-10 cabaret series "Cabaret & Cocktails," but you get the picture. Three Broadway leading ladies -- Sherie Rene Scott, Karen Akers and Christine Andreas (she's pictured here) -- will do their thing in the Carnival Studio Theater this season. Rechristened the Carnival Studio Cabaret for these performances, the theater will become a club where audiences can order drinks and nibbles created by restaurateur Barton G.
Scott, who has starred on Broadway in Aida, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, The Little Mermaidand more, makes her cabaret debut Oct. 15-18. Akers devotes an evening to the songs of Jule Styne Jan. 21-24. And Andreas, who starred in the first-ever show at the Arsht (The Light in the Piazza), brings her acclaimed cabaret show back to the Carnival April 22-25.
Single tickets are $45; a subscription to all three shows is $123. Tickets go on sale Sept. 12. For more information, call 305-949-6722 or visit the Arsht web site.
