Mansion Inn Presents Cabaret Dinners and Live Shows

ROCK CITY FALLS– The Mansion Inn is well-known in Saratoga for hosting weddings and special events and now it will be known for something new: Cabaret. Introduced just last month is the Mansion Inn’s 801 Supper Club, nights of gourmet food and live performances from Tony award winners and nominees that will continue all summer.

Jeff Wodicka and Neil Castro, owners of The Mansion Inn, have been working hard to establish cabaret entertainment for some time and are excited to finally be able to see their plans come to fruition.

“I feel very fortunate,” Wodicka said. “We were able to bring in talent you normally wouldn’t see in a theater so small.”

Thursday evening the Supper Club presented Lee Roy Reams, a Tony Award nominee for his work in the musical “42nd Street” along with an impressive resume of shows such as “Oklahoma,” “Hello Dolly,” “The Producers” and “Beauty and the Beast.” The first Supper Club, held May 28, hosted celebrity impersonators Joe Posa and Scott Townsend. Dressed as Joan Rivers and Cher, the duo used their own voices to impersonate these stars.

Upcoming shows include Liliane Montevecchi on July 16, Beth Leavel on July 30 and Sharon Mcknight on August 6. Coming in September, there will be shows scheduled that focus on Jazz singers and entertainers.

Wodicka is looking forward to Montevecchi’s upcoming performance on July 16 and said he was “amazed” the Supper Club was able to bring her in for a show. Liliane Montevecchi, born in Paris, recently appeared in Manhattan at the revival of the cast of “Grand Hotel” to rave reviews in the NY Times. For her work in the musical “Nine” she won a Tony and the Drama Desk Award for best actress. She has appeared in films such as “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” and “Wall Street” and has performed at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center.  At the age of 82, she can still kick her leg over her head. For the Supper Club she will be singing, dancing and sharing stories of her vast experiences.

Those who attend the Supper Club will be treated first to a three-course supper and then a 90 minute show in an intimate setting, the recently renovated Carriage House at the Inn. The stage is big and with around 100 guests, the audience can look forward to an interactive, up-close performance.

Preparing the supper is Executive Chef Rick Bieber. He is a classically trained French Chef and a graduate from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts. Guests get to choose their menu from a prepared list, beginning with a salad or bruschetta option, a supper choice of prime rib, grilled swordfish or eggplant stack, and dessert is either crème brûlée or a chocolate truffle tart.

The Mansion Inn is located at 801 Route 29 in Rock City Falls, just seven miles west of Saratoga. Tickets are now on sale for Supper Club online at TheMansionSaratoga.com or by calling 518-885-1607. For the entire evening, dinner and show included, tickets are $55.
