Established in 1995, Cabaret Scenes magazine is the only print publication in the world that focuses on the excitement of cabaret — its songs, its performers, its songwriters, and the clubs in which the magic happens. Cabaret Scenes and its website are increasingly crucial to the art form, its careerists, and its audiences as other print media reduce their attention to cabaret or eliminate it entirely.

Published bi-monthly, each issue includes articles on the movers and shakers in cabaret, reviews of live performances and CDs, news of what’s happening on the cabaret scene, and listings of upcoming shows. In addition, our website features extended cabaret reviews, up-to-the-minute news items, photos spreads of special events, and The Cabaret Scenes Hall of Fame to which those who have made an impact on cabaret are inducted.

Because we love both the music and the exhilaration of live performances. We do it because we want those who, like us — like you — appreciate the unique pleasure of cabaret shows and want to know more about the art and the artists they cherish. We do it because we believe there are multitudes of others to reach and introduce to cabaret so they also experience the pleasure of that special relationship, the music, the charm of the performance and the warmth of the venues.
