The After Party

The After Party

The After Party is a cabaret held at 10:30pm every Friday night at the Laurie Beechman Theatre, located in New York City's West Bank Cafe. Many other great events are also held at the Beechman; - we are not affiliated with them in any way.

From their website: "Hang out for our weekly showbiz soiree, THE AFTER PARTY. Come and relax with a cocktail as some of New York's most talented performers grace the stage at this social schmoozefest. Or better yet, come up on stage & sing yourself. Iron lunged hosts Brandon Cutrell & Alysha Umphress keep things hopping, with piano man Ray Fellman at the keys. Lisa Asher & Annie Brummel are also on hand to serve drinks & food as well as a few tunes. Located just blocks from the Great White Way, you never know who might drop by. NO COVER."

Most of these videos are from a single YouTube fan channel, hdjk28, also not associated with the events. However, it may be one of the best YouTube channels we've found. The videos below only scratch the surface of what's available in this wonderful collection.
