Joey English Stars in Desert Rose Playhouse NITE CLUB CONFIDENTIAL, Beg. Tonight

The Desert Rose Playhouse, the Valley's live stage company serving the LGBT community, will present Miss Joey English in Dennis Deal's "mid-century modern" jazz musical Nite Club Confidential. The production will open tonight, January 10, 2014 for a six-week run closing on February 16, 2014. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 PM and Sundays at 2 PM.

With an impressive background performing in nightclubs, theatres, and on television around the world, Miss Joey English stars as 1950's nightclub chanteuse "Kay Goodman", a woman who all through the Eisenhower administration, never once saw daylight. Miss English is joined by award-winning singer/actor/dancer John Ferrare as singer/agent/club owner "Buck Holden" and fresh young talent Katie Pavao as up-and-coming nightclub star "Dorothy Flynn". Also appearing are Ryan Dominguez and Jeremy Johnson as "Mitch" and "Sal", versatile and personable members of the vocal group, The High Hopes.

These five characters, accompanied by an onstage 3-piece combo, take audiences on a giddy and sophisticated global adventure from New York to Hollywood and Paris with a smart mix of Vocal Standards like "That Old Black Magic", "Goody Goody", and "Something's Gotta Give" as well as terrific new Jazz tunes. The production is directed by DRP Artistic Director Jim Strait. Broadway and Hollywood veteran Steven Smith is Musical Director/Conductor and choreography is by Mark Demry.

The Desert Rose Playhouse is a project of Desert Rose Productions, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit public benefit corporation.
