Photo Coverage: Kiki & Herb Preview at Madame Tussaud's

Popular downtown stars Justin Bond and Kenny Mellman--aka Kiki and Herb--will star on Broadway for a limited engagement at the Helen Hayes Theatre.  The stars recently appeared in a press preview at Madame Tussaud's, where wax statues of the two were unveiled.

Following the run of Sarah Jones' hit Bridge & Tunnel (ending August 6th), Kiki & Herb Alive on Broadway will play the Helen Hayes from August 11th through September 10th.  After that show's limited run, Jay Johnson: The Two and Only! will move in on September 19th.

"Kiki is a brash, boozy septuagenarian chanteuse. She's seen it all and done it all, just don't expect her to remember it all.  Kiki has never much cared what other people think, but she's always willing to say what she thinks.  On stage with her stalwart accompanist and only living friend Herb, Kiki lets rip with political rants, searing social commentary and confessions about their own highs and lows....In a performance worthy of the Great White Way, Kiki & Herb display their musical prowess with reinventions of songs by great artists old and new such as: The Cure, Bob Merrill, the Wu-Tang Clan, Bright Eyes, Dan Fogelberg, The Mountain Goats and many more....Between songs, Kiki regales their audience with self-indulgent pronouncements and grand delusions, taking on a wide range of subjects from motherhood to gay marriage, the president to the pope," state press notes.
