And here's the cabaret action in March at Pangea on Second Avenue between 11th Street and 12th Street ... via the EVG inbox:
Tammy Faye Starlite will tangle with Marianne Faithful's "Broken English." Raven O is going to dance cheek to cheek with Sinatra. Claywoman will be put under the microscope thanks to special guest John Cameron Mitchell. Jazz phenom Tammy McCann measures up to the great masters from Ellington to Wonder. And Zachary Claus stands up for the woman in us all in “Hey Girl.” Five incredible performers taking risks, flying without a net and landing, we think, almost effortlessly.
