Opening April 10

The first show will include Roe Hartrampf (Broadway's Diana: The Musical, Netflix's "Emily in Paris"), Kaylee MacKnight (the show's co-creator/producer), Julie James (Sirius XM Radio's "On Broadway"), Nick Cearly (The Skivvies, "Out 100"), Emma Degerstedt (Nickelodeon's "Unfabulous"), and Dean Cestari (Off-Broadway's' "Stranger Sings!"). Starting April 15, Billie Aken-Tyers (Titanique) will join the cast. This fun, 90-minute interactive evening, for audiences 21 and over, takes musical highlights from your favorite musicals and sets them to a parody script, telling the story of each show (while poking fun at it) so even your favorite non-Broadway lover will understand the premise. The actors are challenged to perform while the audience has the ability to send them shots. The sobriety of these actors is completely in the audience's hands. Drunk Musicals features parodies of Wicked, Beauty and the Beast, Chicago, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Little Shop of Horrors, and many more. Half scripted, half improv, you will never see the same show twice.

Melissa Errico

"Terminal Ingenue: The Mis-Education of Melissa Errico"

With the racy wit and smiling mischief that have delighted readers of her columns in The New York Times, Melissa Errico will sing her way through her own history, on Broadway and off. Falling in love with the theater at the ripe age of twelve, her journey takes her through her precocious appearance as Eliza in the Broadway revival of My Fair Lady, her triumphs in One Touch of Venus and Amour, and her struggles with the more equivocal adventures of High Society and Dracula. Wryly dubbing herself the "terminal ingenue," with her ever-fresh prettiness and silver-flute voice sustaining her in ingenue roles until well in her forties, she sings her way right through promise, frustration and absurdity - and then past marriage and into motherhood and on to maturity. A special singers' story, Melissa's "miseducation" is also an everywoman's story of silence and song, frustration and eventual fulfillment. The show, including songs by Lerner & Loewe, Kurt Weill and Ogden Nash, Cole Porter, Michel Legrand and Stephen Sondheim, will feature musical director Tedd Firth.

Sunday, April 23 at 9:30 PM

Reeve Carney

*Livestream Available*

After countless sellout performances, Reeve Carney returns to play another solo concert while starring in Hadestown on Broadway. He is best known for his portrayal of Dorian Gray on Showtime's "Penny Dreadful," Riff Raff in Fox's Rocky Horror Picture Show Reimagining, as well as originating the role of Peter Parker in Julie Taymor/U2's Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. Featuring selections from his 5-time Independent Music Award-winning album, Youth Is Wasted, as well a few surprises from the Broadway canon and the Great American Songbook, Reeve delivers a one-man-show cabaret that feels more like an invitation-only after-party than a traditional concert performance.

With Brandon James Gwinn, Dylan Hartwell and Greg Sullivan

*Livestream Available*

Real-life actor husbands Dylan Hartwell and Greg Sullivan force their long-time friend Brandon James Gwinn to co-parent "Three Men and a Baby Grand," a night of music and comedy.

The show, which has enjoyed successful appearances at Provincetown in addition to sold-out performances in New York City, was nominated for "Best Cabaret Show" at the 2022 Glam Awards and is the winner of two 2022 Broadway World Cabaret Awards for "Best Debut Show" and "Best Original Song."

Lady Bunny

"Don't Bring the Kids"

*Livestream Available*

Drag royalty Lady Bunny will present an hour of jokes and demented song parodies. The internationally known drag icon, comedian, recording artist and jet-set DJ is as famous for her big-banged bouffant and her notoriously naughty wit as for her ability to get a dancefloor jumping. A Manhattan gal since the early 80s, Lady Bunny shares Atlanta roots with fellow drag star and former roommate, RuPaul, and is most famous for co-founding and emceeing Wigstock, the annual New York City Labor Day outdoor drag festival that ran for nearly 20 years. She tours constantly, taking her bawdy brand of humor to audiences from Cincinnati to Los Angeles, Buenos Aires, London, Marrakesh and Sydney. Bunny has been lucky enough to share the stage or screen with many of her idols including Patti LaBelle, Joan Rivers, Bea Arthur, Charo, Lynda Carter, and Christina Aguilera at Radio City Music Hall. One-woman show titles like "That Ain't No Lady!," "Trans-Jester," "Pig in a Wig," and most recently, "Cuntageous," offer a hint as to what to expect. From riotously risqué to vividly vulgar, Bunny gleefully delivers full-strength, downright dirty, gobsmackingly un-P.C. adult humor. Lady Bunny can be seen in films and television, most recently in Wig, the HBO Wigstock documentary made with Neil Patrick Harris, and the feature film Hurricane Bianca: From Russia with Hate. She was the "Dean of Drag" on three seasons of "RuPaul's Drag U," has been roasted by Joan Rivers, roasted Pam on "The Comedy Central Roast of Pamela Anderson," and emceed the LGBT prom in one of the most popular episodes of "Sex and the City.

"Sing for Your Ghosts" - Solo Concert Debut

*Livestream Available*

Danielle Ferland, from the original cast of Broadway's Into the Woods, grew up on stage. She made her Broadway debut at age 12 and spent her formative years entertaining packed audiences instead of going to the junior prom. Through stories and songs, Ferland explores the conundrum of perception versus reality, and reveals what it's like to always be singing for your supper. From backstage with Sondheim, to family drama, to farm animals, join Ferland for a jaunt of self-discovery, laughter and of course, music. The show is written by Danielle Ferland and Abby Sher, directed by Darren Katz, and features musical direction by Brian Nash.
