A Fabulous Evening with Charles Busch
Bridge Street Theatre is proud to present a very special sneak preview performance of a new cabaret show by Charles Busch which will have its official premiere in late February as part of the American Songbook Series at Lincoln Center in NYC.
Charles pays tribute in song and story to four cabaret legends (Elaine Stritch, Polly Bergen, Julie Wilson, and Mary Cleere Harran) as well as Joan Rivers, all of whom were close personal friends. Charles will be joined by his longtime musical director (and Catskill resident) Tom Judson at the piano, Joe Gallant on upright bass and Guy Klucevsek on the accordion.
This fabulous evening, the very first public performance of this new show, will be presented as a benefit for Bridge Street Theatre in their intimate "Speakeasy" space on Saturday evening February 20 at 6:00 PM (please note the early curtain time) and will be followed by an champagne meet-and-greet with the artists. Tickets are $40 per person and seating is extremely limited. Call Bridge Street Theatre at 518-943-3818 if you would like more information about the show.
