Courtney Freed and Rebecca Johnson will star in The Coco & Ruby Variety Hour, a dazzling trip down memory lane and a peek into the hilarious and wacky lives of the these two ginger dames. Coco and Ruby mysteriously fell out of their humdrum lives in 1940's Newark, New Jersey and into modern day Hollywood to live the dream! These two characters from the hit web series, "Coco & Ruby," written by Rachel Roderman and directed by Steve Brian, will shuffle-ball-change right out of your computer screen on February 15th to bring you a LIVE show full of old-school comedy and musicianship reminiscent of Lucille Ball and Betty Hutton. The Coco & Ruby Variety Hour will include many of your favorite WWII era standards, as well as vintage takes on contemporary pop songs.
This evening of music and laughter will open with Portland's own swinging band, The Jenny Finn Orchestra and feature special guests The Portland Rhythm Shakers and local actor/singer/Dapper Dan, Sammy Hawkins. The dynamic pairing of Portland native Courtney Freed as "Coco" and Rebecca Johnson as "Ruby" entangles old Hollywood glamour with clever, contagious revelry and absolutely dynamite, show-stopping vocals.
