ABOUT THE DUPLEX

The Duplex Cabaret Theatre is an off-Broadway venue that features performances of all types nightly.

Established in 1950, the legendary Duplex Cabaret Theatre is the cornerstone club of 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.

“It is with great pride that I’ve joined Boundless Theater as one of their ambassadors. When I was first told of their inclusive mission and goals, of supporting new works and new artists of every origin, race, and gender, it reminded me of why I entered the Industry in the first place, and why the role of an actor is important to give voice to all different kinds of narratives and artistic expression. Let’s break down borders, and engage with our communities to bring about these boundless opportunities” - Jenn Colella
