Comedian Alexander Armstrong and US singer Michael Feinstein are among the performers lined up to appear as part of the first London Festival of Cabaret.
The festival will run from October 22 until November 15 with events taking place in a variety of venues across London.
Other acts taking part include Elaine Paige, Maria Friedman and Barb Jungr.
Armstrong will appear in Alexander Armstrong and his Band Celebrate the Great British Songbook from October 28 to 31 at the St James Theatre, where Friedman will give a masterclass in performing cabaret on October 25.
Friedman said: “Cabaret is a unique way for an artist to hone their communication skills, allowing the audience an up-close, concentrated, in-the-moment experience.”
Feinstein’s show will be at the Palace Theatre on November 4. He will be joined by Paige and Julian Ovenden for his show, called Michael Feinstein and Friends at the Palace Theatre.
Feinstein said: “London has always been a special place with a rich musical heritage, so it’s a genuine thrill to be part of the first ever Cabaret Festival.”
Jungr will appear at the Soho Theatre on October 22 to 26 in Mad About the Boy and No Regrets. She will also give a masterclass on November 1 at the Hospital Club 24.
Other acts include Janie Dee, who will perform at the St James Theatre on November 3, and Shona White, Shona Lindsay and Shonagh Daly, who will come together to perform The Three Shonas at the Pheasantry on November 6 and 7.
The festival’s artistic director Neil Marcus said the inaugural festival places “London as a world leader in this unique art form”.
