Cabaret Theatre

The DUPLEX CABARET THEATRE is a 70 seat off-Broadway venue that features performances of all types nightly.
From our humble beginnings in the 50's, under the auspicies of Hal Holbrook, the Duplex's first Booking Manager, DCT has served as a jewel in the crown of the NYC cabaret world for over fifty years. Performers such as Barbra Steisand, Woody Allen, Joanne Worley, Lovelady Powell, KT Sullivan, Karen Mason and Lea Delaria all are Duplex alumns. Also in the past, DCT audiences were lucky enough to catch premiere versions of hits like NUNSENSE, HELLO MUDDAH! HELLO FADDAH!, and a slew of other new shows.

More recently, DCT has been the venue of choice for the award-winning NEW MONDAYS series, featuring new work from composers both up and coming and legendary, from Frank Wildhorn to Stephen Schwartz, Charles Strouse to Galt MacDermot, Jason Robert Brown, Michael John LaChiusa, Andrew Lippa and many others.
