Ryan Raftery Returns to Joe's Pub with THE OBSESSION OF CALVIN KLEIN Photo Ryan Raftery Returns to Joe's Pub with THE OBSESSION OF CALVIN KLEIN
by Julie Musbach - Sep 17, 2018

This fall, Ryan Raftery returns to Joe's Pub for his fourth consecutive run, premiering his new celebrity bio-musical comedy The Obsession of Calvin Klein. The career and life of one of the most ubiquitous monikers in the world gets the Raftery treatment - the artist's signature blend of comedic stage play and popular music parody. Like the modern classic film Black Swan, The Obsession of Calvin Klein imagines the madness that goes hand-in-hand with the gift of creativity, set to reworked versions of popular songs from the past four decades interwoven with Tchaikovsky's haunting Swan Lake.
