Here are some of the shows appearing at Downstairs Cabaret Theatre along with Past/Returning shows - always check here for what's currently on stage:

The Bikinis.  Back together after 20 years!  That girl group from the '60s everyone loves is bringing back the sun, fun, and all the great songs they sang down on the boardwalk at the Jersey Shore . . . all to raise money for the good folks at Sandy Shores Mobile Home Beach Resort.  With a show that promises to get everyone dancing in the aisles.

My Gal Patsy.  This show will take you on a country music journey into what a night at a Patsy Cline concert would have been like, and you won’t want to miss one second of this trip!  Featuring Josie Waverly capturing over 20 Patsy Cline signature songs including early hits like “Walkin After Midnight,” “Lovesick Blues,” and “There He Goes,” through her final hit recordings of “Crazy,” “Leavin' on Your Mind,” and “Sweet Dreams.”

Take Me Home.  Relive everything that was the 1970s and '80s in this fun-filled nostalgic salute, featuring music by Journey, Stevie Nicks, Hall & Oates, Donna Summer, Rolling Stones, B52’s, Carly Simon, Fleetwood Mac, and many more! Featuring Broadway stars and Rochester natives Nicolette Hart (Rent, Legally Blonde, Million Dollar Quartet) and Tom Deckman (Spamalot, Sex and the City), as well as fresh and exciting talent direct from New York City – in a not-to-be-missed rock 'n roll concert event that will "take you home" with some fantastic memories along the way

Cindy Miller:  I've Got the Music in Me.  Charismatic entertainer Cindy Miller returns with her hit show for an early New Year's Eve celebration! An ultra-electric performance, this hot Las Vegas-style show features great contemporary musical selections & extraordinary impersonations performed with phenomenal energy - great for the entire family.

Marc Salem's Mind Over Rochester.  Prepare to be AWESTRUCK with this truly funny and thoroughly astonishing display of mind reading and so much more! Marc Salem is a mentalist like you've never experienced, and his brand new show features material never before seen!!! He doesn't have anything up his sleeve except an amazing ability to understand and control the human mind. This jaw-dropping entertainer has baffled audiences from Broadway to London, from Australia to Brazil... and beyond!

Good Rockin' Live.  This live concert event brings the early days of Rock n' Roll to life, telling how rock was born through the music and the stories of those who lived it. In 1952 Sun Studios opened up shop in a small storefront in Memphis, setting off a chain of events that would change the course of musical history. In a few short years, this little record company would produce such superstars as Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, and B.B. King. With hits like “Great Balls of Fire,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “That’s All Right, Mama,” “Blue Suede Shoes,” and many more, this show stars Eddie Clendening (Elvis in Million Dollar Quartet on Broadway)!
