Up Cabaret

UP CABARET—a new entertainment in the Cleveland area

On Saturday, April 14 the lights went up on a new small entertainment stage in Cleveland area. The space, upstairs of the Cleveland Public Theatre, is the home of UP Cabaret, the brain child of Paul Hoffman.

CPT’s Artist Raymond Bobgan agreed with Hoffman that Cleveland could benefit from a regular Cabaret room. It’s a place where live entertainment night club acts will appear on a regular basis. For six weeks this spring, UP CABARET will light up the stage at 10:20 p.m. on Saturday night. (Doors open at 9:30) Cabaret tables, a cash or credit wine and beer bar, and local stars will be available for an entrance fee of only $5 (payable at the door).
