“Dreamy cabaret darling” Jack Bartholet [TimeOut NY] shares his “remarkably naked emotion and expert storytelling” [Bistro Awards] to fondly recall a summer spent on Fire Island where his very first antidepressants where first ingested. In this eclectic program of songs ranging from 1930’s Songbook tunes to bops of today, Jack uses his “punk sensibility and buttery smooth vocals” [BroadwayWorld] to chat medication (prescribed and otherwise), dance floor discoveries and UNUSUALLY GRAND IDEAS.
“The art of cabaret is alive and well and living wherever Jack Bartholet is performing. Do not miss him!”—Alan Cumming
Jack Bartholet is an award-winning cabaret artist known for his solo show Lady with a Song, which played to sold-out crowds in New York at Pangea and Club Cumming and in London at The Phoenix Arts Club. He was presented the Bistro Award (The Ira Eaker Special Achievement) in 2020 and was asked to honor the 2021 recipient, Petula Clark, as she accepted her Lifetime Achievement. Bartholet hit the cabaret scene in 2015 with his solo show Two Drink Minimum at The Duplex and performed variations of that show for the next year in London at The Phesantry. He worked as an artist in residence at The Orchard Project developing his acclaimed show (included in the 2019 New York Times Fall Arts Preview of 77 shows to see), which ran continuously until lockdown. Recently, he has been seen in Angela Di Carlo’s Jo-Lynn Butterfly show at the Wild Project, Barbara Maier Gustern’s If Music Be The Food Of Love at Joe’s Pub , Travis Moser’s Just One Look: The Songs of Linda Ronstadt at The Green Room 42, and at The Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre in Almost Heaven: Songs of John Denver. Jack splits his time between Cherry Grove, Fire Island and Brooklyn with his husband and dog.
