Welcome to the Cabinet of Wonders, a one-of-a-kind variety show featuring world-famous musicians, leading novelists, and comedians in a rare showcase of talent hosted and curated by musician and author Wesley Stace.



Since its inception in 2009, Cabinet of Wonders has established itself in New York, and on tour in the USA and Europe, as an exciting stage for both prominent and emerging voices in music,
literature and comedy. Stace originally conceived Cabinet of Wonders as a way to bring together his creative friends; he handpicks the performers and facilitates unusual onstage collaborations for each show, managing to weave the diverse lineup into an unforgettable night. An acclaimed artist in his own right, Stace has released 16 albums under the name John Wesley Harding, one under his birth name, and published four novels.


This year, Stace adds a holiday twist to the proceedings as he assembles an all-star cast for the Cabinet’s debut at the Strand Theater in Lakewood, NJ.

A DICKENS CHRISTMAS CAROL by DICKENS!
“A Christmas Carol’ as you have never experienced it before!
Join us as we welcome Gerald Dickens, the great, great grandson of Charles Dickens, for his one-man show, a theatrical performance of A Christmas Carol inspired by Charles’ own energetic readings of the 1860s.
Gerald Dickens conjures A Christmas Carol with just a table, wing chair, and hat rack accompanying him on stage. As he leaps, sobs, and laughs, 26 characters of the classic tale are brought vividly to life. Gerald has created different postures and voices for each character, achieving this so adeptly that the audience has no doubt about “who is who,” so to speak.
The Strand is happy to welcome Gerald to a theater his great, great grandfather would be comfortable in and, hopefully, start a new tradition with this one of a kind “A Christmas Carol.”

YELLOW BRICK ROAD A tribute to Elton John

There is no other performer who looks and sounds so much like Elton John, nor any tribute act that provides the experience of being at an actual Elton John concert, the way Gerald Brann and Yellow Brick Road does. Brann not only bears an uncanny resemblance to the international superstar, complete with his mannerisms and gap-toothed smile, but he meticulously re-creates Elton John’s vocals and playing to the letter. To truly capture the essence of the piano man, Brann dresses in custom-tailored replica costumes and Elton’s trademark sunglasses
