Celebrate summer while it lasts @ the Paper Mill Playhouse Cabaret! 


Paper Mill Playhouse


Liz McCartney

Join us at the Brookside Cabaret

SEP 1–4

Liz McCartney has appeared at Paper Mill in Pirates!, Mary Poppins, and Ever After, but perhaps most notably as Ursula in The Little Mermaid. On Broadway, she performed in My Fair Lady, Sunday in the Park with George starring Jake Gyllenhaal, South Pacific, Annie, The Phantom of the Opera, Mamma Mia!, Thoroughly Modern Millie, and Les Misérables. Liz created the roles of Sue Tilly in the Boy George musical Taboo and Rebecca in Dance of the Vampires. She was part of the City Center Encores! productions of Road Show, God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater, and Carnival with another Paper Mill alum, Anne Hathaway. Liz has received two best actress awards from the New York Musical Theatre Festival and a Backstage Bistro Award for her show Rosemary and Time: A Musical Biography of Rosemary Clooney. She has appeared on TV and film, at cabarets around New York, and can be heard on several cast albums. She is also a writer, composer, and costume designer.




Coming up next week

SEP 8–11

Kelli Rabke brings her brand-new show to the Brookside Cabaret, celebrating big—though small—ladies of song in Tiny Giants: Petite Powerhouses from Garland to Gaga. In this salute to Edith Piaf, Bette Midler, Stevie Nicks, and many more, Kelli and pianist John Fischer perform unforgettable songs from nine decades of popular music. Kelli got her “big break” as Dorothy in Paper Mill Playhouse’s The Wizard of Oz and went on to play the Narrator in the Broadway revival of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (US cast recording), and Éponine in Les Misérables on Broadway, among others, and she returned to Paper Mill in the landmark production of Stephen Schwartz’s Children of Eden. Kelli is now a staple in the NYC cabaret world. Her first solo cabaret debuted to a sold-out crowd at Feinstein’s/54 Below, and she has since been featured in shows ranging from Sondheim to Streisand to Bernstein.
