Photojournalist Helane Blumfield picks her 2021 favorites from cabaret and concerts


I sent a mission to our excellent Broadway World Cabaret penpals asking, “Would you please make a list of your favorites of the year?” A ‘Best of’ genre? Of course, some of our early re-emergence reporters didn’t stay with us long enough to have a list of this nature, and some of the newer writers haven’t built a CV long enough to create anything yet. like that . There are however three correspondents who did not wait a moment to return the text message saying: “Yes! And .. Voila! ”And“ On that! ”Our brilliantly gifted photojournalist, Helane Blumfield, was the first to rise to the challenge and, today, Helane’s choices stepped in, accompanied by a note saying,“ You understand that was impossible, right? ”, Which, of course, I did. In true photographic form, Helane chose to remain silent on whether it was or not his favorite acts of the year, his favorite artists of the year or his favorite photographic creations of the year. As a one-off photographer myself, I just let Helane’s art do the talking. of himself. So, dear readers, here are the choices (and photos) of Helane Blumfield for
