Seth Rudetsky Heading to Feinstein's at the Nikko, 9/13-14
Sirius/XM radio's Broadway host, Seth Rudetsky, is bringing his hilarious one-man show - Seth's Big Fat Broadway - to Feinstein's at the Nikko for two performances only - Saturday, September 13 (7 p.m.) and Sunday, September 14 (7 p.m.). Seth's Big Fat Broadway is described as a combination of "America's Funniest Home Videos" and "The Daily Show." The 90-minute tour-de-force features his trademark "deconstructions," in which Rudetsky uses his audio/video collection to break down brilliant performances from beloved Broadway divas (Patti LuPone, Betty Buckley) as well as showcase mind-boggling videos like The Osmonds singing a medley from Fiddler On The Roof or Cher performing all of West Side Story. Seriously. This award-winning show recently played to a sold-out crowd in London where it received 5-star reviews and was called "blindingly brilliant" "unmissably fantastic" "hysterical", a "must-see"! Tickets for Seth Rudetsky range in price from $35 - $50 and are on-sale now and available by calling 866.663.1063 or visiting www.ticketweb.com.
