Julie Wilson, Laurel Massé at Yale Cabaret Conference

It calls itself "the other cabaret" at Yale.

That's to differentiate the International Cabaret Conference at Yale from the Yale Summer Cabaret, I suppose. (And when did it become international?)

It could also separate it from the Cabaret and Performance Conference at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center in Waterford where many of the folks involved with the Yale Cabaret Conference were affiliated in the '90s.

Whatever it is called, it sounds swell and it runs July 23 to 31.

The first show is in July 24 at 7:30 p.m. and features Julie Wilson and Tovah Feldshuh each performing their acts.

On July 25, the conference's faculty gives a joint show featuring Faith Prince, Sally Mayes, Jason Graae, Pamela Myers, Carol Hall, Mark Burnell, Laurel Massé, Shelly Markham, Sharon McNight, Paul Trueblood, Alex Rybeck, Tex Arnold, George Hall, Erv Raible, Wilson and Feldshuh.

On July 29, "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way!" features Graae and McNight.

On July 30, "Fabulous Broadway Babies" features Mayes and Prince.

On July 31, the students of the conference perform.

All shows are at 7:30 p.m. at the Iseman Theater on Chapel Street in New Haven. Tickets are $35 general, $25 seniors and $15 students.
