The Arts Council of Princeton presents the sixth annual Cabernet Cabaret, a cabernet-infused performance in the most romantic month of the year. Join Sarah Donner and special guests Mark Applegate, Matthew Campbell, and Rebecca Mullaney for a night of live music filled with drama, romance and comedy. Friday, February 16. A tapas reception provided by Mediterra Restaurant begins at 7pm and the Cabernet Cabaret performance begins at 8pm.
The theme of this year’s Cabernet Cabaret performance is Defying Gravity: Songs of Journeys & Transformation. “My life has taken quite a few turns this year. I left my teeny Princeton apartment where I had been for fifteen years and moved back to my hometown of New Bedford, Massachusetts. I bought my first house. I had to start a lot of things over again, and it seemed natural to reflect on that musically this year”, says Donner. “All great musicals are stories of journeys great and small, and it’s easy to find songs that speak to my heart. I’ve left a lot of friends in NJ, but I’m also building new relationships in a city where I left my heart long ago. I am so glad to revisit with some of those friends at this show and make music with them!” This year’s Cabernet Cabaret includes selections from Wicked, The Lion King, Anastasia, Ordinary Days, and Dear Evan Hansen.
