Travel back in time and experience an amazing night of obscure, naughty and lovely tunes from the 1920s and '30s. Stylish flapper Janet Klein is a true ukelele lady, and along with her band members, The Parlor Boys, will treat you to spirited and inspired renditions of Tin Pan Alley, early hot jazz, vaudeville, Yiddish novelty numbers, ragtime and other lovable, rare and rustic tunes. Film historian Jerry Beck opens the show with rare vintage 16mm film clips. Janet Klein and her Parlor Boys' latest CD release -- their seventh -- is titled Whoopee Hey Hey! Tunes to Cheer in Tumultuous Times, and reflects current-day concerns with rare and upbeat songs from the Depression era. Learn More
1958 was the year it all happened: The hula-hoop was invented, Barbie was introduced to the world, Sputnik was shot into orbit. Joe Alaskey, usually heard but not seen, has been the voice of Looney Tunes characters for years. In this 6-week limited engagement, he presents new and hilarious characters, on a tour of that amazing year, 1958. See Orson Welles raise money, Lord Buckley tell a story and Vincent Price crack up on the set of “The Fly!” Written and staged by Joe Alaskey and Martin Olson.
