"Last Monday, April 24, 2023, the iconic Chapel at The Abbey in West Hollywood was transformed into a musical escape as it hosted the "Defying Labels" live show and competition, produced in collaboration with Studio For Performing Arts LA." -BroadwayWorld
"Musical Mondays, a weekly event showcasing live performances, has been a staple of West Hollywood's nightlife for years, having started at Eleven nightclub before moving to Rage and now The Chapel at the Abbey and this week's celebration marked its 14th anniversary. Ishka Maher, the producing promoter behind Musical Mondays, made sure the event was extra special, with a red carpet event and food and drinks served "cabaret style" throughout the evening.
The event was a huge success, with a packed audience enjoying an unforgettable night of music and entertainment. The evening started with a special two-hour musical improv/lip-sync performance by "The Fans of MuMo," a group of talented artists who paid tribute to their favorite musicals by accompanying music videos. The audience sang along and cheered as they were transported to different worlds of musical theater."
