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

"Re-Animator- The Musical" was insane and funny, and an entertaining musical as well! Music sometimes reminded me of Gilbert and Sullivan with the songs telling the story, and the atmospheric underscoring music was fantastic. Campy special gory makeup effects were just the right degree of goofy and gross, the lighting was in a style of "High Drama", the acting and performances were on target with just the right tone of serious/camp, and the show held your interest from beginning to end. George Wendt was hysterical as always, and the rest of the excellent cast looked like they were loving it as much as the audience. One short intermission to catch your breath, then back for a throughly entertaining evening. I LOVED it. and am going back to take friends. And one note about the "splash zones"... the first two rows are designated, but don't believe it. I saw blood fly farther than that into the audience 5-6 rows back. They assured us it will wash out, but if you are an uptight hipster who doesn't want their vintage wear soiled, leave it home and wear black. I plan on sitting close next time and getting bloodied! This show is gonna catch on big-time. See it while you still can!

In 1985, Stuart Gordon directed his first feature film and created a sensation. It was Re-Animator, a smashing success based on a horror story by H.P. Lovecraft. The film delivered as many laughs as it did screams making it a cult classic among horror fans and winning a Critic’s Prize at the Cannes Film Festival. Now, Gordon is back with his co-writers Dennis Paoli and William J. Norris and composer/lyricist Mark Nutter to turn Re-Animator into a musical for the stage.
The cast stars Chris L. McKenna (King of the Ants), and Jesse Merlin (Star of The Beastly Bombing). Also starring, Rachel Avery, Mark Beltzman, Cynthia Carle, Brian Gillespie, and Liesel Hanson, and introducing Graham Skipper as Herbert West.
Special effects are being done by the same guys who did them for the 1985 movie: Tony Doublin, John Naulin and John Beuchler. And the blood will flow so freely that the first row will be designated as a “splash zone.” Needless to say, the show is not for small children.
