Feedback from audience members' hearing aids (which are meant to be turned off when using the theatre's listening devices) was a problem. A distinct high-pitched squeal.

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 _

Description

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.
