ABOUT: The Nitz/Howe Experience celebrates its 20th anniversary as the longest-running cabaret show in the country, with over 1,200 shows at its home base of Chicago’s Davenport’s. Joined by George Howe, Daryl Nitz is bringing the production to his hometown. It's part request, part audience participation and part stand-up comedy. Nitz’s 30 vocal impressions include Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, Neil Diamond, Carol Channing, Billie Holiday and Edith Bunker. The show has been hailed as “the best party in town” by New York’s Cabaret Scenes magazine.
