Fashion designer, Project Runway: All Stars judge and media icon, Isaac Mizrahi brings his irreverent show, Does This Song Make Me Look Fat? to The Cabaret. The New York Times hails the show as “raucously funny.” Mizrahi will delight you with a collection of standards and pop songs, from Cole Porter and Charles Aznavour to Blondie and Bob Dylan. He’ll be backed by a six-piece band led by jazz sensation Ben Waltzer. While he may have played two sold-out runs at the famed jazz club, Café Carlye, don’t expect a refined evening of standards. He will share irreverent stories and observations about life and promises to distribute hand-me-down swag from his party-going career to lucky audience members.
