Baltimore native and Germano’s favorite, Mary Claire Curran, is delighted to be back again at Germano’s for a summer cabaret. In Mary Claire’s opinion, nothing pairs better with bottomless mimosas than bottomless Broadway show tunes! Her cabaret show “Broadway Brunch” will feature show tunes and Disney-a cabaret show for all ages.
The Cabaret opens at 11 am for brunch and the performance begins at noon.
