Franco Milazzo is the editor-in-chief and co-founder of This Is Cabaret, Europe’s only website dedicated to covering burlesque, circus, drag, musical comedy, songbook and everything in between. Established in 2012, This Is Cabaret now has four editors and over 20 expert contributors including current performers and producers. It is the only website that has been shortlisted for a prestigious London Cabaret Award. Last year, America’s Daily Beast website called him “a man with an encyclopedic knowledge of the city’s cabaret culture,” and this year, he has been a judge for the two-week Mimetic Festival and the UK Drag Idol competition. As a critic, Franco has covered all the above art forms as well as opera, ballet and theatre and is looking forward to seeing what Milan has to offer!
