The Cabaret celebrates Black History Month with Broadway star Chester Gregory in his award-winning show The Eve of Jackie.  Gregory reveals the sometimes tragic side of the man who recorded over 50 hit singles from 1957-1975 from “Lonely Teardrops” to “(Your Love Keeps Liftin’ Me) Higher and Higher” and inspired generations of entertainers from Elvis Presley to Al Green to Michael Jackson.  

Gregory’s Broadway credits include Sister Act, Hairspray, and Dreamgirls, to name a few.  Other credits include The Jackie Wilson Story, Hairspray the Movie and performing for Michael Jackson.
