Black's THE CZAR OF ROCK AND ROLL Opens At Joes Pub 4/6
"THE CZAR OF ROCK AND ROLL"
Grammy-nominated writer/comedian Lewis Black (The Daily Show) and composer Rusty Magee (Ubu Rock, The Green Heart) join forces to tell the story of Eugene Reeves, a small-town American boy who became the biggest rock star in the Soviet Bloc. From his humble beginnings as "The Singing Dishwasher" in Nevada, to his hit record as "The Groovey Gringo" in South America, to his Soviet superstardom as "The Czar of Rock and Roll", Eugene's story is an international rock epic about one man's search for Marxism, music, and the hottest women on the far side of the Iron Curtain.
Directed by Evan Cabnet, this one-night-only event will feature Broadway's hottest stars performing such Eugene Reeves classics as "I Am Not Particularly Fond of America", "I'm Just a Red Who's Singing the Blues", and the greatest Marx-inspired hip hop dance break ever staged. "The Czar of Rock and Roll" is not to be missed. $20
THE INCOMING SERIES: A Shared Evening of Under the Radar works at Joe's Pub
Monday, April 6 at 9:30 PM
Mark Russell will introduce the evening as well as give a performance lecture on "Theater from the Underside". Vocal performance artist Joel Israel will perform excerpts from Reluctant, an audio experience which combines dark stories with dialogue, surveillance audio tapes, multilayered soundscapes. And The Nonsense Company will bring us Great Hymn of Thanksgiving which takes place at a dinner table, where the sounds of conversation have been replaced by fragments of news reports from Iraq, scraps from the Army prayer manual, invented Arab folk tales, and a recurring State of Emergency pointing everywhere and leading nowhere. $12
