Both charming and disturbing, The Suit combines a rich musical score with remarkably simple staging as it tells the story of a husband who doles out an unusual punishment to his cheating wife: He asks that she treat her lover's abandoned suit as a guest of honor in their home. Accompanying her wherever she goes, the suit becomes a whimsical yet cruel reminder of her infidelity. African melodies interweave with jazz standards to underscore this surprising, sharp-witted tale set in Apartheid-era Johannesburg, in a haunting production that integrates virtuosic musicians directly into the action.

Was curious to see this because Justin Bond was a neighbor years ago and heard of him over the years and never saw the shows. Piano was too loud but he was SO talented and really managed to be animated despite having to play. KiKi is funny but the show was too long and not everything really warranted the time it got. 45 - 60 of this would have been great.
I feel like I've watched trannies for 30+ yrs play the same washed up self-obsessed drunk who's not a great mother and I'm amazed people keep thinking that same characterization is brilliant. I'd either like to see a different characterization or some dimension added to it. But for what it was, Bond did it well. I thought some audience interplay was desperately needed and would have been more enjoyable in a much smaller venue. I'm glad they've had the sucess they've had.
Quotes & Highlights
“Kiki & Herb: Alive on Broadway are alive with a capital A. Irresistibly full-bodied art and perverse showbiz genius. A magnified cabaret concert that has the heat and dazzle of great balls of fire.” _—The New York Times _
Top Ten List & “Best of 2006” in _The New York Times _
Not satisfied simply doing endless versions of cabaret standards, Kiki & Herb display their unique musical prowess reinventing popular songs by great 20th- and 21st-century artists like Wu-Tang Clan, Joni Mitchell, Styx, Pat Benatar, Radiohead, Nirvana, Bonnie Tyler, and Britney Spears. Kiki DuRane is a brash, boozy, septuagenarian chanteuse. She’s never much cared what other people think, but she’s always willing to say what she thinks. Onstage with her stalwart accompanist and only living friend Herb, Kiki somehow stumbles her way through a selection of songs, punctuated by political rants, searching social commentary, and recollections of a lifetime filled with unforgettable memories.
