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. He’s been named winner of the 2012 Noel Coward Foundation Cabaret Award, probably because of his astute way with the British master. Coward and others requiring panache on the list. Alex Rybeck at the piano.
