New York Cabaret to Benefit Colectivo 41
By David Johanssen
New York award-winning cabaret performer and recording artist Frans Bloem returns to Shelter with his new show “Kabarett Beyond Borders.” Singing in five languages across 52 countries from Paris to Shanghai, Frans is famed for his unrivaled interpretation of chansonnier Charles Aznavour, who personally authorized him to sing his classics. Cabaret Scene writes of Frans, “…a riveting show with a passion that binds the audience to him.”
