The Downtown Cabaret Theatre Presents:


The Music of Elton John by Bennie and the Jets

Bridgeport’s award-winning Downtown Cabaret Theatre (DCT) invites you to Ring in the New Year Cabaret Style! On December 31 at 8:30pm the music of Elton John will be performed by Bennie and the Jets. Following the performance, DJ Kevin from Celebrity Entertainment will be taking the stage with you as you make your way to the Cabaret Stage for the the dance party that takes place immediately after the show.

Bennie and the Jets is the world’s premiere Elton John Tribute Band. Bennie and the Jets is led by Greg Ransom whose vocals, on stage mannerisms, and piano playing are exactly like those of Elton John. Backed up by an incredible band of musicians, Greg has the ability to make you believe that you’re at an Elton John concert. If you were to attend an Elton John concert today, you would miss seeing the plumage and costumes of yesteryear. With Bennie and the Jets, you get both.

The $75 all inclusive price includes the concert, dance party, parking, per ticket service fees, party favors, concessions, noise makers, balloon drop, and coffee & danish. As part of the Cabaret tradition, you are allowed to BYOB and Picnic.

Why not make it a package? Dinner, Hotel, and a Show! The Cabaret has partnered with the Holiday Inn and Bridgeport to provide our patrons a safe alternative to to driving home. The Holiday Inn has extended a $99 room rate for the night and is only four minutes walking distance from the Cabaret. The Cabaret has also partnered with Trattoria ‘A Vucchella, the authentic Italian Restaurant right down the steps from the Cabaret on Fairfield Ave. Patrons can get a pre night bite to eat or drink before the show at 15% off with their ticket to the show.
