A singer responsible for one of Broadway's top moments will be the first performer in The Cabaret's new building.

Jennifer Holliday, best known for playing Effie "Melody" White in "Dreamgirls," will sing for the grand opening in late March. Holliday co-created the part and belted out the famously heartwrenching ballad, "And I Am Telling You, I'm Not Going" in the 1981 musical.

Back by popular demand! Broadway and Emmy Award-winning actress Jane Lynch and her posse are back at The Cabaret for a comically kitsch throwback to the old WWII USO canteen and 1960's Christmas specials of yore.

"One of the best environments for serious music fans in town!"
