Enrich the Indianapolis art community with a gift to The Cabaret’s Annual Fund.

Your gift allows audiences to enjoy world-renowned performers in a fabulously intimate setting and develops the next generation of cabaret artists through education programs. Support from donors is crucial to keep ticket prices reasonable and accessible, as ticket fees cover less than 40 percent of The Cabaret’s annual expenses.

In recognition of their generosity, donors of $250 and above have access to a special pre-sale each season – this ensures you have the best seats to the hottest ticket in town.


Thank you for your commitment to elevating and promoting the art of cabaret in Indianapolis.

Recognition period: January 1, 2018 to October 31, 2018

  • "This space is truly what a cabaret is meant to be... an intimate setting of hightops and enclosed booths help the audience feel special and a lone piano with small, personal stage complete the picture."

    Broadway World
  • "Attending a cabaret show can feel like you're part of a (very stylish) secret society. It's you, the audience, seated at tables, sipping wine or a cocktail, with the vocalist, perhaps fresh off of Broadway, just a few feet away on stage."

    Indianapolis Monthly
  • “Indy's posh landing pad for Broadway stars on Pennsylvania Street.”

  • Melissa Hall, Stage Write Indy

    The beauty of the Cabaret lies in the spontaneous nature of each show. Unlike well-known musicals, with cabaret, audiences never know what to expect next. Artists can choose to sing old standards or an original number. They can share personal stories or make jokes with random people in the crowd.

    Melissa Hall, Stage Write Indy
  • “Best in class. A truly delightful experience - over the top!”

    Cabaret Guest
  • “We looked at the many places where we could spend our money for entertainment and realized there was no venue that came close to The Cabaret. The venue and staff simply make this venue the best in Indianapolis.”

    Cabaret Guest
  • “Awesome venue! I tell everyone I know about The Cabaret and encourage them to see a show.”

    Cabaret Guest
  • “My favorite thing in the world is to connect with people, break the fourth wall, improvise, make people laugh, and talk directly to the audience. Cabaret is basically everything I like to do, all in one.”

    Tony Award-winner Laura Benanti
  • “The Circle City’s swanky new cabaret space is Broadway’s latest buzz.  Old Hollywood meets urban chic in a softly lit chandelier-filled room that holds 190 people—no seat in the house is more than five rows from the stage—it feels like Lea Salonga is giving her life story for you.  Stick around for a meet and greet after the spellbinding serenade."
    Indianapolis Monthly
  • “One of the best environments for serious music fans in town!”
