ALOHA OY! THE CABARET May 14th 2022 @ 5PM
I'm beyond thrilled to share the news of my NYC cabaret debut on May 14th, 2022 @ the famed nightclub Don't Tell Mama! Written and performed by JEFFREY VAUSE (www.jeffreyvause.com) this cabaret act explores through songs and stories Jeffrey’s journey from an innocent young performer who grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii to his eventual move to New York City – because growing up in paradise wasn’t enough! Featuring music by Bacharach/David, Irving Berlin, Stephen Sondheim, Maltby/Shire, Edward Kleban, Kander/Ebb, Marvin Hamlisch plus others, this delightful show will take you from the most beautiful island in the world to the most exciting one! In Honolulu, Jeffrey performed in numerous productions before his move to the Big Apple. He triumphed as Arnold in the 15th Anniversary Off-Off Broadway revival of Harvey Fierstein’s Tony-winning play TORCH SONG TRILOGY at the Grove St. Playhouse in Greenwich Village. H/X Magazine in its review wrote: “Jeffrey Vause, excellent as Arnold, the broken-hearted drag performer, regenerates the role with a more relaxed demeanor.” Jeffrey has also been seen in IRVING BERLIN RAGTIME REVUE, THE IT GIRL, OKLAHOMA! & Andy Halliday’s NOTHING BUT TRASH, portraying 3 different character roles. Jeffrey produced, wrote and performed in a one-man multi-character play (also called ALOHA OY!) and recently produced, wrote and starred (in drag no less!) in TOMORROW WE LOVE, a gender-bending comedic homage to the classic romantic films of the mid-20th century, at Theater for the New City. Jeffrey founded PROUD IMAGE THEATRE COMPANY in 2019 to highlight and showcase works primarily from the LGBTQIA+ community that demonstrate tolerance and promote visibility through artistic expression.
