Since it’s the cabaret thing for performers to have a theme and therefore a title, some mighty dreary ones crop up. But here’s one with wit. It’s “Does This Song Make Me Look Fat?” The fellow worried about gaining weight has long been a likely boite crooner. Lately, however, he’s been showing remarkable depth in his work.

Alex Rybeck at the piano.
