Julie Halston, Rebecca Luker, Micah Stock And More Join Benefit For God's Love We Deliver
Villain: DeBlanks makes its Birdland Theater debut with a one-night-only benefit performance on December 12. This star-studded event promises to be an evening of laughter and shenanigans, with 100% of proceeds to benefit God's Love We Deliver -- the non-profit organization which cooks and home-delivers nutritious, individually tailored meals to people in the New York City metropolitan area living with severe illness.
After a year away from New York -- playing shows in Los Angeles, Maine, and Scotland's Edinburgh Festival Fringe -- Villain: DeBlanks is back in time for holiday hijinks. Do not miss this unpredictable show, starring the hilarious "Legend of Off-Broadway" Julie Halston ("Sex and the City," Tootsie the Musical), three-time Tony-nominee Rebecca Luker (Music Man, Mary Poppins), Tony-nominee Brenda Braxton (Smokey Joe's Cafe?, "SMASH"), Tony nominee Micah Stock (It's Only A Play, The Front Page), UCB funnyman Jeff Hiller ("30 Rock," Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson), and scene-stealer Jared Zirilli (Summer - The Donna Summer Musical, Lysistrata Jones).
A Time Out NY Critics' Pick written by Billy Mitchell, Villain: DeBlanks is the uproarious improvisational comedy where the cast says words you put in their mouths. The audience provides nouns, adjectives, verbs, etc. (the wilder, the better), and the actors provide the laughs-uncensored and unrehearsed-as they enact the story of Philip DeBlanks' untimely demise. It's "Clue" meets adult "Mad Libs," and it's never the same show twice.
So grab a thesaurus and a few friends, and come laugh your (BODY PART)_____ off!
Villain: DeBlanks plays Birdland Theater, 315 West 44 Street, NYC, on Wednesday, December 12 at 9:45pm. Tickets $30, $10 food/drink minimum. www.BirdlandJazz.com, 212-581-3080
