Due to an exposure to COVID, and out of an abundance of caution for the safety of audience, staff and everyone involved, Laura Benanti regretfully will no longer be able to perform at The Cabaret Project of St. Louis Gala event on April 29, 2022.
We regret to let you know this information but we have made a very exciting replacement for the evening:

Tony Award-winning actor and singer SANTINO FONTANA will perform in Ms. Benanti’s place.

Fontana is a Tony winner for his lead role in the Broadway hit musical version of Tootsie and has performed in 8 additional Broadway shows including Cinderella, Billy Elliott, Hello Dolly (with Bette Midler), Sunday In The Park with George and more. His television and film work include the voice of Prince Hans in the Disney smash Frozen, the recent season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Mozart In The Jungle, and much more.

If you no longer wish to attend this event, refunds may be requested through MetroTix until Friday, April 29, 2022 at 1 p.m. Please email online@metrotix.com or call 314-534-1111 with your refund request.
