What exactly is the CT Cabaret Theatre? It is a non-equity professional cabaret theatre that produces Broadway-style musicals and comedies year-round. Being a cabaret theatre means you sit at cozy round tables where you are invited to bring in whatever you like to eat or drink. Hence our motto being “BRING YOUR OWN, WE’LL PROVIDE THE REST”. We do have a small dessert bar that provides a variety of treats and beverages to purchase as well.
