The New Century Follies: A Night at the Folly, a Vaudeville Tribute to the Marx Brothers!
In early 2012 in the artistic hotbed that is the one and only Kansas City, an idea was born. Let's bring the best of the best in the region, these new millenium innovators in vintage performance arts, to an historic stage, for a dazzling night. Live music, dancers, showgirls, pantomime artists, acrobats, comics, femme impersonators, vocalists, and novelty acts, all showcasing their skills in a big way, not seen in our town for nearly a century. On April 6th, the vision took shape, and the crowd was wowed. This, very clearly, couldn't be just a one time occurrence! And thus, a show was born. Four times a year The New Century Follies graces the stage of The Folly Theater in Kansas City, Missouri. The People's Liberation Big Band provides the accompaniment as the NCF's dazzling rotating cast takes you simultaneously back in time, and to the future of variety entertainment.
The Autumnal installment is heavily ripe with talent, including:
The People's Liberation Big Band of Greater Kansas City
From Dallas, Texas, LULA HOUP-GAROU
From St. Louis, Missouri, XANDER LOVECRAFT
Fresh from Fire Island, JUSTIN VALENTINE
VICTOR & PENNY
RUBY VON BLUSH
