The Latest

  • 2015 Spring Season ~ Patrick's Cabaret launches an ambitious and multifacted 29th year of programming with the 2015 Spring Season, mobilizing an estimated 125+ artists in the first six months of the year alone with a variety of community-driven events in its historic firehouse theater.

    Programming at the Cabaret is community-driven, with artists selected and supported by two Curators. For all Cabaret-produced events, 100% of the box office goes to the artists. Cabaret Events -- the cornerstone and namesake of Patrick's Cabaret's programming -- includes both themed and open-ended events created from calls for performers. The Guest Curator program invites four emerging and established curators to bring their own events to the stage. Music programming includes the monthly Singer Songwriter Series and the Eclectic Electric Music Series, each showcasing musicians from a variety of styles and experience levels. The Calof Series, entering its third year, pairs musicians and literary artists for an intimate (and free) event in our Lobby Lounge.

    The 2015 Spring Season also features three special presentations, developed in partnership with local high-profile artists and organizations. A unique partnership between Patrick's Cabaret, the Walker Art Center, and the University of Minnesota culminates in a weekend of events called "The Culture Wars: Then & Now," reflecting on the debate about public support for the arts, which ignited after a controversial performance at Patrick's Cabaret in 1994. Events include a public conversation at the Walker Art Center with performance artist Ron Athey and writer Jennifer Doyle, a symposium at the University of Minnesota with a keynote by performance theorist Amelia Jones, and two nights of a Cabaret performance event co-curated by Eleanor Savage and Scott Artley. In January, founder Patrick Scully opens the Cabaret doors to a special behind-the-scenes look at the development of a solo version of his acclaimed production "Leaves of Grass - Uncut," exploring the life and historical impact of Walt Whitman. May's A Literary Tribute to Husker Du, co-produced with local literary organization Rain Taxi, and held in conjunction with the massive Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP) Conference, invites literary artists to celebrate one of Minnesota's most beloved musical exports, with an appearance by phenom Grant Hart.

    Lastly, continuing Patrick's Cabaret's commitment to being a resource for developing community artists of all ages, the organization provides space and technical support for the Be Heard Youth Poetry Slam (produced by TruArt Speaks) and for a Senior Showcase from the Saint Paul Conservatory for Performing Arts. A new award from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council will support building an artistic advisory board charged with developing the Cabaret's relationships with literary arts organizations, further embedding a diverse range of spoken word, storytelling, and literary artists into the Cabaret's community.
