The DUPLEX CABARET THEATRE is a intimate off-Broadway venue that features performances of all types nightly. Established in 1950, the legendary Duplex Cabaret Theatre is the cornerstone club in Greenwich Village, the cradle of New York City cabaret. Originally under the direction of Tony Award winning actor Hal Holbrook, the club has built its reputation as a dynamic platform for new and emerging talent, performers seeking to launch their career and hone their craft. Luminaries such as Woody Allen, Joan Rivers, and Barbra Streisand are among the incredible talent who graced our stage early on in their careers. Continuing this time-honored tradition, we attract and work with the best and brightest up-and-coming composers, singers, and comedians, as well as established Broadway professionals and award-winning recording artists. Our historic Off-Broadway Black Box theatre is the quintessential New York performance space.
