Award-winning actor/playwright Rick Roberts has been tapped to act as host and moderator for the Cabaret at Soulpepper (The Young Center for the Performing Arts, Distillery District, Toronto) this Saturday, May 10. While the evening will feature a healthy dose of solo performances of songs new and old, these Cabaret performances also serve as an opportunity to engage in spirited discussion a few times throughout the evening with the featured artist, a discussion led by a member or a friend of the company. Every topic…except math…and politics…and what constitutes “art”…and religion…and sports…and fashion…will be on the table. What’s left to talk about, you ask? Plenty, but you’ll have to come to find out.

A late-breaking opportunity came up at the venerable Toronto Club Hugh’s Room (we wish Jesse Winchester a speedy recovery!) and the idea was proposed that Gary, George, and I reconvene the trio that recorded on The King of Good Intentions and The Beggar Heart. It’s been some years since we last played together…I’m thinking maybe six…so I’m looking forward to seeing what will happen on stage. That rhythm section was the envy of many a singer-songwriter, and I always knew how lucky I was to have them along. If you were (are) a fan of those recordings, we hope to see you April 6, 8PM for what is sure to be a memorable night!!
