The Arden Theatre is excited to present a new concept - a four part cabaret series - in its new intimate 100 seat Hamilton Family Arts Center Studio Theatre located at 62 N. 2nd Street. The cabarets will feature local artists. The first is Jeff Coon who will be followed by Joilet Harriet, Kristine Fraelich and another artist to be named at a future date. The series is directed by Associated Artistic Director Matthew Decker and the Music is supervised by Amanda Morton. Jeff Coon, accompanied on the piano by Amanda Morton and on the cello by Justin Yoder, used the intimate setting to tell his story through song and anecdotes. His performance was extraordinary, giving the close audience members an inside look at the individual behind the persona of the actor and singer Jeff Coon. His routine was raw, emotional and unbelievably gratifying…80 minutes of non-stop remarkable performance. If the upcoming Cabaret performances are half as stirring, they will be an absolute must to put on your calendar. This new concept has all the earmarks of an unqualified success for the Arden Theatre Company.
