Upright Cabaret is a wildly popular night of night of song featuring an eclectic mix of artists from stage, record and screen. Cabaret is synonymous with New York City, but in sunny southern California Producer/Hosts Chris Isaacson and Shane Scheel have turned cabaret into a hip and contemporary social swirl of young Broadway and Hollywood. 


In the Golden Age of entertainment, Hollywood supper clubs like the Coconut Grove hosted all of the great stars of the day and helped define an era of style and sophistication that Hollywood was famous for. This was also a time when Hollywood stars could sing, act, dance… and occasionally tell a few jokes. Upright Cabaret has successfully reclaimed that era against a modern day backdrop of paparazzi, glitz and glamour in one of the hottest neighborhoods in the City of Angels. Now, they are bringing a concert version of their “new generation cabaret” to cities across America. 


Upright Cabaret boasts one of the most extensive and diverse rosters of talent in the country. Broadway diva’s, talented troubadours, cabaret legends, Hollywood notables, pop sensations and many future sensations all find their way to the Upright stage. Upright has featured cast members from over 75 Broadway shows as well as stars from Ugly Betty, Grey’s Anatomy, Cold Case, How I Met Your Mother, Dancing with the Stars, American Idol, House, Nip/Tuck and countless other film and television productions. This roster, combined with out of the box marketing techniques and the duos knack for attracting press have helped Upright Cabaret reach an equally diverse and non-traditional audience.


Producer’s Chris Isaacson and Shane Scheel, along with Upright Booking Director Siobhan O’Neill will be available in the Hall of America’s at Booth 552 to introduce presenters from around the world to the new generation of cabaret. In addition, the Upright Cabaret will host a very special New York edition of their famed cabaret starring familiar faces from stage and screen at Joe’s Pub on Sunday, January 11th at 11:00PM.
