KRITZERLAND #86: THE APRIL FOOLS Celebrates 6th Anniversary at Sterling's Upstairs at The Federal
For our 86th show we once again celebrate April Fools and all things April Foolish, one of our favorite shows to do. After a year and three months of doing the initial Kritzerland shows, we inaugurated the Sterling's Upstairs at The Federal room on April 1, 2012, so this is our sixth anniversary in the room. That, of course, is reason enough to come but it's also always a wild and wacky show.
Where else will you hear not one but two songs from the legendary three-performance flop Pousse Cafe by Duke Ellington and Marshall Barer? And we have many other wild and wacky treats in store for you - songs that are classics and stuff you may not know as well or know at all, because that's what Kritzerland is all about. We've assembled a wonderful cast and because Easter felt it necessary to copy us and happen on the first (for the first time in decades - why can't Easter make up its mind), we will have gaily-colored Easter eggs for all attendees, some of which may even by chocolaty.
So, make your reservations for our April Fools show because These Foolish Things make Fools Rush In and the room gets full quickly. Hope to see you all there. Kritzerland is produced and hosted by Bruce Kimmel and co-produced by Doug Haverty. Musical Director is Richard Berent.
