Scott Siegel Presents
2009 NIGHTLIFE AWARDS
THE ALL PERFORMANCE AWARDS CONCERT!
"THE NIGHTCLUB WORLD'S EQUIVALENT OF THE TONY'S" - Stephen Holden, NY Times
TheaterMania is proud to be one of the original sponsors of The Nightlife Awards. It's the only broad-based critics' award for Nightlife performers in New York City. Better still, it's the only all-performance award show in the world, making it totally audience-friendly! It works like this: the best performers in cabaret, comedy and jazz in the nightclubs of New York are chosen by a distinguished panel of more than two dozen critics and judges and the winners, rather than make acceptance speeches, perform to show why they were chosen. And not just the winners! Special guest stars also perform! This year, expect to see a glittering combination of both winners and special guest stars that will include Larry Gatlin of The Gatlin Brothers, Stephanie J. Block (starring later this season on Broadway in 9-5), Euan Morton (Tony Nominee for Taboo), multiple Tony winner Tommy Tune, and Broadway song and dance star Noah Racey and the New York Tap Ensemble. Among the Nightlife Award winners who have already committed to performing this year are the legendary Marilyn Maye, jazz great Freddy Cole, the sensational pairing of Tony Award winner Christine Ebersole and the sophisticated Billy Stritch, comedy sensation and star of "Sleepwalk with Me" Mike Birbiglia, cabaret star Baby Jane Dexter, crossover jazz star Allan Harris, the brilliant comedienne Helen Baldassare, up-and-coming cabaret star Brandon Cutrell, and many more surprise guests from across the world of entertainment!
