Sally Schwab Comes to the Laurie Beechman with ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING, 2/26
NYC's favorite babysitter, Sally Schwab, is back by popular demand with more hilarious anecdotes, high-octane vocals, and too-bizarre-to-be-true stories of her "ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING". Written with and directed by Back Stage Bistro award winner and 3 time Drama Desk nominee Tom D'Angora (NEWSical the Musical, Naked Boys Singing!, and Divas I've Done), this 60 minute show follows a young wide-eyed aspiring actress as she navigates the insane world of auditions, cruise ships, children's theatre, "Camp Broadway", and her go-to survival job of raising NYC's most...colorful...children.
Sally Schwab is a proud member of Actors' Equity whose Off-Broadway credits include A Broadway Diva Christmas starring Ellen Greene, Divas I've Done and Back In Pictures. Regionally, Sally's favorite roles include Queenie in Lippa's The Wild Party (Provincetown Theatre) and Barbra in Avenue X. She has also toured nationally with Camp Broadway playing Lola in Damn Yankees, Annie Oakley in Annie Get Your Gun, and Winnifred in Once Upon A Mattress. Sally attended the University at Buffalo for musical theatre where she played Morales in A Chorus Line and Rose in The Wild Party. Sally also holds a Masters degree in Education from Hunter College.
Featuring songs from Sondheim and Cy Coleman to gospel spirituals to New Kids on the Block - "ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING" features music direction from Bistro and MAC Award winner TRACY STARK and background vocals by the cast of Naked Boys Singing (David Bryant, Eric Restivo, and Steve Riggle). The show is written by Sally Schwab, with Tom and Michael D'Angora who also serve as the show's directors.
