THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW YORK: THE PARODY MUSICAL is Coming to The Green Room 42 for Two Performances

THE GREEN ROOM 42 will present the return of The Real Housewives of New York: The Parody Musical on Friday, June 16 at 7:00 PM and 9:30 PM. Written by 2023 Richard Rodgers Award winner Dylan MarcAurele, the show is coming back to the club following a sold-out debut, a sold-out encore, and an appearance on Bravo TV’s “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.” The cast will include Brooke Sweeney, Deborah Berenson, Nina Jayashankar, Kim Onah, Olivia Miller, Rocky Paterra, Tess Davison, and Zofia Weretka. The show is directed by Marc Tumminelli.


The Real Housewives of New York: The Parody Musical is a raucous revue celebrating and satirizing thirteen seasons of the iconic reality series. Set during 2018’s nation-dividing conflict between the Skinniest Girl and the Kennedy Princess, the story follows “Real Housewives” cast members past and present as they compete for their chance to win a spin-off—or to fade into obscurity forever. The show is an offshoot of the popular Instagram channel @RHONYmusical, which amassed 28,000 followers over the course of the pandemic. Created, written, and directed by MarcAurele, the account’s short musical sketches have drawn praise from celebrities like Molly Shannon, Gary Janetti, and Antoni Porowski.


Dylan MarcAurele is a New York-based writer. He recently won the 2023 Richard Rodgers Award, was a 2020-21 Dramatists Guild Foundation Fellow, and was a 2021 Jonathan Larson Grant finalist. Composing credits include bluegrass pop musical tragicomedy Lewis Loves Clark, interactive dark comedy Tea with G (directed by Scott Schwartz), and family musical The Land of Forgotten Toys (“This score could compete with a lot of far more famous holiday attractions... You might want to catch this show just to hear MarcAurele’s tunes.” – Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune). He also wrote book/music/lyrics for the queer horror pop musical M3GAN: The Parody Musical. He has composed songs for several youth musicals available for licensing through Broadway Licensing and Theatrical Rights Worldwide. B.A. in Music, Harvard University, ’16.

Tuesdays at 7:00 PM through June 27

Lady Bunny

“Don’t Bring the Kids”


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.”
