Southfield, Mi, November 6, 2023 — Cabaret 313 co-founder and president Allan Nachman is stepping down and Edward Eickhoff, treasurer, is the new president.
Nachman, a retired lawyer, will continue as Artistic Director and board member. He co-founded the nonprofit in 2001 with Sandi Reitelman. The two Metro Detroiters developed the idea to introduce professional cabaret to Detroit, bringing premier talent from Broadway and New York stages to stunning venues across the city. The nonprofit celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2022.
“I attended performances in its third year and became hooked,” said Eickhoff, an area real estate executive. “Cabaret 313 has continued to grow, collaborating with next generation of performers, including its masterclass series with the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre and Dance; Oakland University’s Musical Theatre Program and Detroit’s Mosaic Youth Theatre.”
Nachman said Cabaret 313’s mission is dedicated to bringing the artform of cabaret to Detroit while supporting and enhancing the increasing energy and vibrancy of the city. He said the organization has become a cultural staple in Detroit.
Cabaret is an intimate genre in which the singer tells a story through song. It evokes both laughter and tears and forges a connection between the artist and the listener.
