Tim McArthur sings SONDHEIM’S DIVAS – March 11 at 7:30 ($20 – 25)
Sondheim aficionado Tim McArthur performs a classic evening of the leading ladies songs from Sondheim’s greatest musicals. For the past 18 months Tim has been hosting and performing Cabaret Nights for the Sondheim Society. Each month performing various songs from Sondheim’s varied catalogue Tim was inspired to relook at all of the leading ladies songs in his shows with a gender retake on them, If you love your Sondheim – you will love this Diva show!
So having been in Into The Woods, Company, You’re Gonna Love Tomorrow and Assassins and directing A Little Night Music and Sweeney Todd – the Sondheim Society asked me to host and program their monthly cabarets. So each month I started singing one diva song and this resulted in me performing a 85 min set of the diva songs.

Mountains – A musical Adventure with Tim McArthur – March 13 at 7:30.
British West End performer and international Cabaret artiste Tim McArthur makes his debut in Chicago after appearing at Feinstein’s 54 Below early this month. Recounting his journey from starting out in the big old world to establishing a career in British Theatre from performing, directing and presenting – an evening of stories, anecdotes, all delivered with humour, wit and panache. This Mountain of a show is a musical journey of a 40 year olds journey through time, life experiences, challenges and courage. Performing classics such as Before The Parade Passes By to She Used To Be Mine and a few hidden theatrical gems this is a show not to be missed.
