The quirky and comic musical revue "Awesomer & Awesomer!!!: The Songs of Phoebe Kreutz" returned for another run of performances at the Triad (158 W. 72nd St.) yesterday, September 17, with a second performance on September 23 at at 7pm. Check out photos from the event below!

For years award-winning composer/lyricist Phoebe Kreutz has been singing her downtown "joke-folk" ditties in the dirtiest clubs in the Western world. Now her songs are putting on their fancy pants and being re-imagined by Broadway actors and musicians. 

The New York Times said "Phoebe Kreutz's chanteusey delivery and comic writing were genuinely funny", and the New Yorker called her "the kingpin of the joke folk scene". Kreutz's songs are often inspired by diverse subjects, such as historical figures ("Oh, Elizabeth I"), literature ("Lonesomest Dove on the F Train"), relationships (‘Disaster") and the pitfalls of rock and roll excess ("The Ballad of Throat Culture"). As a lyricist, she's written for "Johnny and the Sprites", "Dance Dance Revolution" and "The Water Coolers". She's currently working on two new musicals, "The Dirty Hippie Jam Band Project" with Dan Israel and "Thanks!" with Gary Adler.
