Cabaret Comico 2015

Cabaret Comico returns to San Francisco on Friday November 13 at 7:30 pm. Paul will once again be performing his own work as part of this festival dedicated to original, cabaret-style, comic songs. Inspired by our Italian cultural exchange partners at the Festival of the Shaman and the Showman in Vallecamonica, Italy, we will be holding this year's Cabaret Comico at the Italian Athletic Club in North Beach. Click here for tickets, or visit the New Performance Group Website for more information.

You are also invited to meet our Italian visitors and hear other local songwriters perform at Pena Pachamama on November 15, where a Songwriters Showcase and dinner will be jointly presented with West Coast Songwriters. For more information, see the New Performance Group Website.

The second edition of Musical Cafe took place on May 3, 2015 at Stage Werx Theater in San Francisco. The show comprised staged readings from four new musicals, including Lord Arthur's Crime, a project Paul is currently developing in collaboration with writers Sandy Kasten and Jerome Gentes and composer Richard Jennings. Two of Paul's songs were performed: Dancing With the Angels and The Future Is In Your Hands. A demo recording of Dancing With the Angels can be heard on the Songs page.
