T. Oliver Reid to headline spring season
for Gaslight Cabaret Festival

The Gaslight Cabaret Festival has announced their series for spring 2015, with a slate of shows in March and April including performances of NYC actor and singer T. Oliver Reid's show "Drop Me Off In Harlem" on Friday, March 27 and Saturday, March 28.

Described as "an evening of club-hopping to the music of Harold Arlen, Duke Ellington and Andy Razaf," Reid's show won a 2013 Bistro Award for "Best Theme Show" and will include a backup band featuring music director Lawrence Yurman, trumpeter Bob Ceccarini, bassist Dave Troncoso, and drummer James Jackson.

Reid (pictured) has been seen on Broadway in shows including Mary Poppins, Sister Act, The Wedding Singer, La Cage aux Folles, Never Gonna Dance, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Follies and Kiss Me, Kate.

The rest of the spring schedule will feature St. Louis performers, with shows in March from Brian Owens, Neal Richardson, Joe Dreyer and Rosemary Watts, Linda Kennedy, Ben Nordstrom, Meghan Kirk, and Anna Blair. Performers in April will include Gina Otto, Ken Haller and Kay Love. (For a complete schedule and details on the individual shows, see the website of series producers The Presenters Dolan.)

All performances start at 8:00 p.m. in the Gaslight Theater, 358 N. Boyle. Tickets are priced from $25 to $35, depending on the show and the seating option, and are on sale now.
