VILLAIN: DEBLANKS, July 31 at 11:30PM:
Good news: Phillip DeBlanks is dead! He was a villain, a scoundrel and a lousy dancer. Or was he? Is it possible Phillip DeBlanks was framed by one of his circle of friends? You provide nouns, verbs, adjectives, desserts and body parts, and we provide the laughs - uncensored and unrehearsed - as the cast enact the story using words you've put in their mouths. It's "Clue" meets adult "Mad Libs," performed by some of the funniest people in New York! Like a ride to summer camp in the back of a station wagon, each eye-watering performance is ridiculously one-of-a-kind, and, best of all, the proceeds benefit Broadway Cares. Special Guests: Jennifer Cody, Hedda Lettuce, Christine Pedi, Adam Feldman, Hunter Ryan Herdlicka and Hugh Hysell, with Heather Shisler. $10 cover charge. $20 food & beverage minimum or two drinks.
THE SKIVVIES, August 2 at 11PM:
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! This "musically thrilling" undie-rock, comedy-pop duo don't just strip down their musical arrangements, they literally strip down to their underwear to perform their distinctive mashups and eccentric originals for cello and ukulele, with touches of glockenspiel, melodica, and a surprising array of under-used instruments. Award-winning singer-actors Lauren Molina (Marry Me a Little, Sweeney Todd, Rock of Ages) and Nick Cearley (All Shook Up) became YouTube sensations as The Skivvies, with living room videos that displayed their powerful harmonies as well as their powerful abs. Those clips led to live shows that The Wall Street Journal called "smart, sophisticated...ingenious," and Out Magazine, "The Skivvies have managed to carve out a niche that we never knew needed to exist: part Weird Al- parody and part sexy burlesque...an unusual explosion of satire and sultry." They also have a single and music video directed by Augusten Burroughs, bestselling author of Running With Scissors. They will be joined by special guest stars who will strip down and rock out. Expect a hilarious evening of genre-hopping pop perfection. Guests include: Perez Hilton, Orfeh (Legally Blonde), Andy Karl (Rocky), Kate Rockwell (Legally Blonde), Leslie McDonel (American Idiot), Greg Hildreth (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) and Rebecca Naomi Jones (American Idiot). $30-40 cover charge. $25 food & beverage minimum.
