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
Quotes & Highlights
Fresh from the San Francisco SketchFest, The Tribute returns to The Steve Allen Theatre for TWO NIGHTS ONLY!
“It’s Better to Be Dead and Remembered than Alive and Forgotten.”
Starring and written by Tracy De Nisi, Crissy Guerrero, Laura Milligan, & Pinky Turzo
Co-written/directed by Dave Foley
Co-directed by Steve Hibbert
Choreographed by Linda Kostalik
Written by and starring Tracy De Nisi (White Trash Wins Lotto), Crissy Guerrero (White Trash…, El Vez, La Posada Magica), Laura Milligan (White Trash…, Waiting for Studio 54), Pinky Turzo (Guadaloop, El Vez) and written by Dave Foley (Kids in The Hall, Newsradio, Celebrity Poker Showdown), The Tribute takes a comedic, ascerbic look at four forgotten former bandmates whose lives fell apart when lead singer and tabloid bad girl from their 1980’s girl band, Sparkle, went solo.
After the Diva’s recent, and, sadly, not at all surprising demise, the four women are reunited after 15 years to perform a tribute show in her honor. Weaving in standards and musical theater songs, the soaring vocals and lush harmonies will almost make you forget that the four women are only here hoping for one last pathetic chance at fame.
The Tribute is co-directed by Dave Foley and Stephen Hibbert (who directed the Groundlings’ most recent and well-received show, and who also directs the show’s video pieces), and choreographed by Linda Kostalik (La Posada Magica). The four singers are supported by a three piece combo, including Gere Fennelly, Mark Rivers and Willie Bongiovanni.
