Edward Eickhoff, treasurer of Cabaret 313 in Southfield, has been named as its new president, replacing Cabaret 313 co-founder and president Allan Nachman, who is stepping down.
“I attended performances in its third year and became hooked,” says Eickhoff, an area real estate executive. “Cabaret 313 has continued to grow, collaborating with next generation of performers, including its masterclass series with the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre and Dance; Oakland University’s musical theatre program; and Detroit’s Mosaic Youth Theatre.”
Nachman, a retired lawyer, will continue as artistic director and board member. He co-founded the nonprofit in 2001 with Sandi Reitelman. The two metro Detroiters developed the idea to introduce professional cabaret to Detroit, bringing talent from Broadway and New York stages to venues across the city. The nonprofit celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2022.
