"Every so often we are fortunate to cross paths with somebody with that intangible spark that makes them stand out in a really good way. They bring enthusiasm to all they do, and they inspire others to reach far beyond what seems possible. I ran into such a person some years ago, and I’ve been amazed by what this young fellow has done and continues to do."

After a year and half, Val and Samantha Belding are reuniting for another duet cabaret at Cafe Zoë! Complete with delicious food and drinks, this blissful evening of songs takes you into the chaotic minds of two musical theatre nerds through a collage of memories, dreams, and scrapped stories that await their moment in the spotlight.

The cabaret will also be streamed live on Instagram on the @val.zvi and @sammyroo16 accounts. Doors open at 5:30pm - seating is first come, first served. No tickets or reservations necessary!

MARCH 17 - 19, 2023

A true theatrical event, this legendary masterpiece is considered by many to be the greatest musical ever created. Surreal, sophisticated, compelling, heart wrenching and epic in scope, Follies by musical theatre legend, Stephen Sondheim, and author, James Goldman, uses the musical theatre as a metaphor for the collapse of American innocence and naivete in the post-Kennedy years.

Val is directing, vocal directing, and lighting designing this production, which sets out to bring a new concept to this classic musical!
