Wednesday, July 17 &

Thursday, July 18

Cabaret for Life’s own Felix Truex returns to the grand piano this summer with a new one-man show!  Musically dazzling and hysterically funny, Felix is truly a one-and-only kind performer.

You can expect covers of your favorite George and Ira Gershwin songs, medleys of hits songs from iconic pop stars of decades gone by, and musical theater pearls and gems—but you may not get what you expect.  And it’s always better.

HOUSEWIVES 2024.png

Wednesday, August 14 &

Thursday, August 15

Like the cicadas, the bennys and Beetlejuice, the Housewives of Monmouth County are back this August to bring a little joy into your boring Jersey Shore lives!  Join Nicole Marshall of Brielle, the Baroness St. Claire of Rumson, Leslie Lohan of Fair Haven and Ruth Levitz, Deal for a rip-roaring evening of gossip, bad pop music and lots of good old-fashion bitching.  (These ladies used to have real names, but they gave them up after the Great Ban of ‘22.)

 

IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you’ve never come to a Housewives show, please don’t start now!  This show is not for the faint of heart, the readily offended or anyone who mistakes satire for fake news.

 

Written and directed by Andrew DePrisco (blame him!).
