Best surprise venue for cabaret concerts New York 2006 - Metropolitan Museum Concerts

Who says Mary Cassatt had nothing in common with Cole Porter? Proof to the contrary: Show music, lovingly rendered in high cabaret style by Steve Ross, has become a regular feature of the Metropolitan Museum Concerts. This season, the first of Ross's two forays, on January 12, 2007, will be keyed to the Met's exhibition, "Americans in Paris, 1860–1900," so you can check out the Eakinses and Sargents before you scurry through the Egyptian wing for a hit of Rodgers & Hart, Porter, and Vernon Duke. A glance at the romantics might be suitable before Ross's May 18 concert, devoted to the broad-brimmed melodies of Vincent Youmans.
