Actor/singer Claybourne Elder stars in a cabaret show Thursday through Sunday at Musical Theater Heritage.
The show is part of the MTH “Night on the Town” series. Elder has performed on Broadway in “Bonnie & Clyde” and off-Broadway in Kansas City Repertory Theatre’s production of “Venice” at the Public Theater. Other off-Broadway credits include “Allegro,” “One Arm” and “Road Show.”
In Kansas City, theatergoers have seen Elder in KC Rep productions of “Into the Woods,” “Cabaret,” “Pippin” and, most recently, “Sunday in the Park With George” at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
The show will include music from some of the shows as well as songs that are Elder’s personal favorites. The performance also will include amusing anecdotes about his career. Elder will be accompanied by a trio led by pianist Jeremy Watson.
Seating will be available at 12 tables. Individual tickets cost $31 to $46. Other options include $125 for a table of four with cocktail service or $200 for a VIP table for four that includes a bottle of wine and chocolates. The shows are in the area that was Off Center Theatre.
The “Night on the Town” series continues with a cabaret show slated to run March 17-20 with Heather MacRae, stage and screen veteran, who was last seen locally in KC Rep’s production of “Hair: Retrospection.”
Marilyn Lynch, who was so impressive with Victor Wexler-Raider in last year’s production of “The Gin Game,” stars in a play about a woman coming to terms with the loss of a loved one. The play, “The River’s Trembling Edge” by Dennis Dey, will run for three performances only — 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday — at Just Off Broadway Theatre, 3051 Central St. Tickets cost $10 and must be purchased with cash at the door.
