Quotes & Highlights

“You’ll howl with delight as this happy-faced duo launches into absurd medleys … a delightfully god-awful lounge act riotously over the top.”
 —_LA Weekly _
“The show. . .is not just awful — it’s awfully entertaining.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune

Description

Starring Judy Heneghan and Michael Halpin

With Peter Staloch and the Swizzle Stick Dancers

Experience Martini and Olive’s whistlestop medleys of hit 1970s pop songs, played out by two characters in costumes that should be considered crimes against humanity and backed up by a trio of middle-aged tap dancers whose credo is “overmedicated and ready to rock.”

See what the St. Paul Pioneer Press called “such deliciously, marvelously, intentionally appalling stuff that you’ll find yourself alternately holding your head in your hands and wiping tears of laughter out of your eyes. Shaken or stirred, Martini & Olive are a heck of a cocktail. These people know how to make us laugh. First time I saw them… I laughed so hard I also gave myself a hernia.”
