The Cabaret, You Can Always Come Home, will be performed at the Howe Theatre on April 16th, 2022, according to The Main Street Theatre & Dance Alliance (MSTDA). It was originated in 2017 by Jonathan Fadner and Kimbirdlee Fadner. This cabaret was created with songs by Jonathan and other up-and-coming NYC composers at that time.

The cast was made up of professional New York actors, NYU students and alumni, and MSTDA alums. The new 2022 cast of You Can Always Come Home (YCACH) features a fantastic collection of talents that harken back to the early days of MSTDA: Brenna Stein, Deb Drucker, Barbara Parker and David Kolakoski; to new faces and voices; Jessy Li, Jeanne Castagnaro, Kay Clark and Anjana Rao; MSTDA alum (Ty Scanlan) and, of course, MSTDA’s Artistic Director, Kimbirdlee Fadner.

Jump back in time to the first-ever You Can Always Come Home Cabaret on Feb 24, 2017:

The early cabarets, which were a joint effort between Common Man Musicals and MSTDA, were a success, but the direction of this collaboration changed in 2018 when full-length musicals were produced, such as The Monkey King, Northanger Abbey, The Wind in the Willows, and The Ghosts All Around You.

But MSTDA keeps moving and ANYTHING GOES when you enter the world of the cabaret! The evening will be filled with both nostalgic and new tunes. We feel a strong magnetic pull to gather together as a community of artists, in celebration of life and art through song. So, we invite everyone to grab a seat at the hottest show in town! We are so excited to bring cabaret back into the entertainment sphere of Roosevelt Island!
