South Orange Performing Arts Center’s (SOPAC) crowd-favorite Cabaret in the Loft series returns this Sunday, January 28 at 7PM with locally-beloved performer Julie Galorenzo in her show Only Famous on TikTok. In this evening of music and frivolity, Galorenzo will perform from the Musical Theatre canon along with some of her favorite Pop songs to a sold-out audience! All audience members are invited to stay after the performance and grab the mic during Cabaret in the Loft’s first ever “Spirits and Show Tunes” post-show experience.
Galorenzo is a north Jersey native who grew up performing in musicals throughout Essex and Passaic counties. In 2018, she starred as Mrs. Lovett in Light Opera of New Jersey’s production of Sweeney Todd right here at SOPAC. You may have also seen her in one of her many “kooky sidekick” roles all over the country, including in Washington, D.C., New Hampshire, Idaho, and Arizona. Additionally, Galorenzo has amassed thousands of followers on social media, where she shares tips to improve how you sing, ace your auditions, and so much more.

Galorenzo joins the stellar list Cabaret in the Loft alumni that includes Wicked’s Ginna Claire Mason; Titanique’s Mark Evans; Broadway composer Eli Bolin and his friends who included Kara Lindsay, Christiane Noll, Charlie Pollock, and more; and SOPAC’s first-ever Drag Show featuring Queen Astala Vista. Galorenzo made Cabaret in the Loft history after selling out her show in the first 48 hours!
Beginning in 2022, Cabaret in the Loft has quickly become a SOPAC audience favorite. Curator Matthew Luminello draws on the wealth of talent from the greater South Orange-Maplewood (SOMA) area to put together this series of intimate storytelling and unforgettable performances.
