Australian Kim Smith is an award winning cabaret artist known for his Weimar-inspired cabarets that juxtapose authentic musical material with stylistic takes on more current popular tunes. His newest cabaret, Morphium (directed by Christian Coulson) premiered in March 2009 at the Neue Galerie’s Café Sabarsky in New York, before touring to Melbourne, Australia. Morphium has since returned to Café Sabarsky, and performed at Joe's Pub at the Public Theater, and at Don’t Tell Mama, NYC. In 2008, Smith debuted his acclaimed cabaret, Johnny Come Lately (directed and produced by Karen Kohler) at New York's Don't Tell Mama, transferring to The Duo Theatre at DMAC. Past cabaret works include Quietly Kim Smith, Kim Smith is Madly Adored, and Kim Smith's Jungle Parade—the latter having run for a total of five seasons at Melbourne's Butterfly Club and headlining at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2007. In 2009 Smith was presented the Ira Eaker Back Stage Magazine Bistro Award for Special Achievement as an outstanding performer on the rise (honoured alongside Broadway and Cabaret legends Liza Minnelli and Charles Aznavour), and was nominated for both 2009 and 2010 MAC Awards in the Outstanding Male Vocalist category. He is also a recipient of the American Australian Association's Dame Joan Sutherland Award for aspiring artists, and is a member of the Kabarett Kollektif, a troupe of New York-based artists dedicated to preserving the European cabaret tradition. Smith has also headlined for Earl Dax's Weimar New York and Tingel Tangel Club, as well as for Floating Kabarett at Galapagos Art Space, DUMBO. Other theatrical credits include Merrily We Roll Along (Charlie Kringas), The World Goes 'Round (Redroom Theatre), and the New York premiere of Jude, a new British musical after Hardy's Jude the Obscure (as Philotson). Mr. Smith studied in Australia at the Ballarat Arts Academy (BA, Music Theatre), and has worked extensively with the Walt Disney Company. He now resides in New York City.
