Kidding on the Square

Actress and singer Emily Bergl took the cabaret world by storm with her hit debut show, Kidding on the Square.  This uniquely theatrical evening, complete with stunning instantaneous costume changes, is a vintage cabaret told from the perspective of a modern girl. Ms. Bergl does much more than sing the classics; she creates a cast of colorful characters that bring the elegant melodies of the 1920’s and 30’s to life.  Audiences are transported to a unique world that blends classic hits from Noel Coward to Fats Waller with modern favorites from Madonna to the Scissor Sisters. Kidding on the Square is a cabaret for anyone who feels nostalgia for more glamorous days gone by, or simply craves an evening of good old-fashioned entertainment.


Ms. Bergl’s follow up cabaret, NY I Love You, premiered at the legendary Café Carlyle in May to rave reviews from the NY Times and Wall Street Journal.  This deeply personal show explores a life long love affair with New York City, and uses the past to illuminate and understand modern city life.


Ms Bergl’s latest show, “Til I Get It Right” debuted at Feinstein’s in San Francisco and is now touring the country.  It is her most personal show to date and offers a diverse musical selection and Ms. Bergl’s signature nouveau cabaret style and acting prowess.


All shows directed by Sarna Lapine (Warhorse, Sondheim on Sondheim, South Pacific), and musical directed by Jonathan Mastro, composer and musical director for David Cromer’s hit revival of Our Town. Kidding on the Square: Live at the Algonquin is available on Amazon and iTunes.
