The Best of the Bay Street Cabaret
After 10 incredible shows and nearly 200 songs sung live, Savannah’s best theater and music experience took a look back with The Best of the Bay Street Cabaret. Part cabaret, part retrospective, and part lively celebration, the show was performed one night only on Friday, October 7 at 7:30pm at Club One’s Bay Street Theatre.
The Bay Street Cabaret has gone from a scrappy live-music start-up to an established performance company that stages original productions with scripts, characters, costumes, and interactive elements to sold-out audiences. Along the way, the troupe has sung nearly 200 songs from a wide spectrum of genres including Broadway, the greatest love songs, big band, standards, pop, rock, holiday favorites, and much more.
This “Best of” show featured a panel-style gathering of Bay Street Cabaret performers who regaled the audience with behind-the-scenes stories and sang some of their favorite, most crowd-pleasing numbers. Every past show was featured including the original Broadway series (Showstoppers, Hot Summer Broadway, Award-Winning Broadway, Bawdy Broadway), special events (HSF Wine & Trolley Tour 2022) and the production series (Vivian and Bill’s Christmas Party!, Love Stories/Love Songs, Time Traveling Drag Queens in the 1940s!, Say Gay, Murder at the Bay Street Cabaret).
The evening also featured some surprises including the “Song Steal,” that will allow performers to “steal” a song that someone else performed in a previous show.
The talented castincluded BSC favorites Travis Cheek, Travis Harold Coles, Hannah Dodson, Cami Nicole Hall, Justin P. Kent, Gwen Leahy, Taylor Mercier, Trey Norris, Chris Stanley, and Dani Vazquez. The show was produced by Rick Garman.
