The Colony Hotel – which The Palm Beach Post has hailed as “probably the best place for cabaret on the planet” – continues its world class season with the Royal Room debut of Melba Moore March 6th – 17th.
Ever since she replaced Diane Keaton in Hair, becoming the first African-American woman to replace a white actress on Broadway, Melba Moore has been a star. From her Tony Award-winning performance in Purlie to co-starring with Eartha Kitt in Timbuktu to playing Fantine in Les Misérables, she has been an audience favorite along the Great White Way. A regular on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, Ms. Moore headlined her own variety show on CBS, was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best New Artist, was the first female pop artist to do a non-operatic solo concert at New York City’s Metropolitan Opera House and even had two #1 hit singles on Billboard.
The cost to attend Dinner & Show with Melba Moore is $115 for dinner and show (Tues-Thurs) & $125 (Fri-Sat); $55 show only (Tues-Thurs) & $65 (Fri-Sat). To make reservations, people should call the hotel box-office at 561.659.8100. The Colony is located at 155 Hammon Avenue in Palm Beach, just one block south of Worth Avenue, one block west of the Atlantic Ocean.
For all cabaret performances in The Colony’s plush Royal Room, doors open at 6 p.m. for cocktails with dinner seating from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. A memorable three-course prix fixe dinner is offered, as well as an a la carte menu of small plates and delicious entrees and specialty desserts from Polo Steaks and Seafood. There is no service during the cabaret performance that starts at 8:30 p.m.
