LANDE Cabaret is an arts organization established in 2009 by founders Larry Enns and Edward Haywood in Vancouver, BC. We are dedicated to advance the art forms of cabaret and musical revue, to provide an opportunity for professional singers to perform the songs of lyricists and composers of the 20th century in an intimate setting and keeping the American song book alive.

- "IRVING BERLIN: The Melody Lingers On"Thrilling, touching, humorous, sad, deep, melancholy, clever...these are the responses I felt experiencing "Irving Berlin: The Melody Lingers On". I had been familiar with and have enjoyed Berlin's compositions throughout my life, but never appreciated the range, the genius and depth of his work until that night at the Orpheum Annex. The cabaret's beautiful voices, energetic dancing, authentically soulful harmony and hilarious interpretations of the music had me laughing hysterically during one rendition and tearing up the next. The entire audience laughed throughout the "Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better" selection surprisingly sung by two males, Geoff Campbell and Jeffrey Victor. I valued the explanations about Berlin's work provided within the transitions from one song to the next. Each song's meaning was brought to life by the wonderful singing. Kudos to music director Larry Enns and director Jeffrey Victor who created a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable evening for all of us!LWJust a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed the show the other night. Please pass on our regards to the performers and all the crew - back and front of house; it really is a great team. Thanks again.

As we were leaving we heard lots of humming, whistling and murmuring about the performance. We look forward to the spring!MLCongratulations! Your show was a great success. A marvelous cast of singers. Clever choreography for many of the numbers. Top notch tap dancing! The appeal of Berlin's songs. The music of Berlin surely lingered on as we left the theatre.

- "BY STARLIGHT"
Wow, what a spectacular Cabaret Night that was at the Orpheum Annex Theatre! Our 'Heartiest Congratulations' to you and your brillant 'By Starlight' cast for another incredible show that took our breath away. K.L.
As a regular theatre goer and a season ticket holder at the Arts Club and (former Playhouse,) It was comforting and encouraging to be a part of a SOLD OUT audience in Vancouver. On behalf of all people who love songs from the Great American Songbook and the style of Cabaret, I thank you for bringing this type of performance to the city of Vancouver. Not only were these some of the best singers this city has to offer, but the quality of the production, was slick, elegant and streamlined. The pacing was perfect, and the accompaniment was stellar! - C
It was a great evening last night! Everyone was delightful and the musical choices as well. Thank you for setting up the tickets for us. We look forward to the Berlin evening. C.A.
I wanted you to know that this is the first time in several years in this city that I have left the theatre, smiling & with lightness in my heart. Bravo! You enhance the Orpheum Annex. I just wish that there were cabaret shows every month of the year, by you gentlemen, (or of the same calibre, with as much taste and depth of knowledge of the genre of Musical Theatre). I really look forward to the Irving Berlin Show. M.N.
Pretty soon you will need the Orpheum Theatre to hold the crowd. Thanks again for a truly enjoyable evening. J & B
We thoroughly enjoyed By Starlight: so many beautiful songs / such talented singers / great choreography / SUPERB PIANIST / wonderful venue / attentive audience etc . . . I'm sure everyone had a marvelous time!

"AN ELEGANT LEGACY"
I thoroughly enjoyed last night's performance of "An Elegant Legacy". It was beautifully performed and judging by all the people around me, you and your company were a hit ! It is such a delight to have the music of Gus Kahn and Yip Harburg remembered and presented in such style. R.H.
Congratulations to you and the entire cast of An Elegant Legacy!!! It was a fabulous evening of beautiful music!!! xo J & B
