Bridge Street Theatre Presents A Benefit Performance Of Charles Busch: MY KINDA 60S

Bridge Street Theatre Presents A Benefit Performance Of Charles Busch: MY KINDA 60SHe's back! Tony nominee, Drama Desk Lifetime Achievement honoree, and two-time MAC Award winner Charles Busch returns to Catskill's intimate Bridge Street Theatre on Saturday February 24 at 4:00pm for a special one-time-only benefit performance of his most personal cabaret show ever: "My Kinda '60s."[SP1]

This delightful new show, which premiered last September at Feinstein's/54 Below in Manhattan and recently received a 2017 Broadway World Cabaret Award as "Best Show - Celebrity Male", whisks audiences back to the Manhattan of the tumultuous 1960s. Charles interweaves personal tales of a childhood and adolescence spent coming of age under the guidance of his indomitable Aunt Lillian with songs from the decade by such artists as Burt Bacharach, Jimmy Webb, The Beatles, Henry Mancini, Bob Dylan, Stephen Sondheim, and Kander and Ebb.

Appearing with Mr. Busch in this hilarious and poignant afternoon of song and story-telling will be his long-time musical director/arranger Tom Judson.

"My Kinda '60s" will be presented once only on Bridge Street Theatre's Mainstage at 44 West Bridge Street in the Village of Catskill, NY. Doors open at 3:00pm for a pre-performance "High Tea" in the theatre's Speakeasy, provided by Verdigris Tea & Chocolate Bar, and the show will be followed by a champagne reception with the artists, both included in the ticket price. Tickets are $60.00 and can be reserved at http://busch60.brownpapertickets.com. However, if you choose to become a 2018 Bridge Street Theatre Season Subscriber, you'll receive a password for special access to purchase seats for only $50. Season Subscriptions are available at http://bst2018.brownpapertickets.com or by calling Brown Paper Tickets at 800-838-3006. Either way, you'd better hurry - Charles Busch's previous appearance at Bridge Street Theatre was hopelessly sold out and time is running short.

The chance to get this up-close-and-personal with a luminary like Charles Busch is one you won't want to miss. For more information, visit the theatre's website at BridgeSt.org or call their offices at 518-943-3818.
