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.

Charles Busch is the author and star of such plays as The Divine Sister, Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, The Tribute Artist, and The Tale of the Allergist's Wife, which ran for 777 performances on Broadway and received a Tony nomination for Best Play. He wrote and starred in the film versions of his plays, Psycho Beach Party and Die Mommie Die, the latter of which won him the Best Performance Award at the Sundance Film Festival. In 2003, Mr. Busch received a special Drama Desk Award for career achievement as both performer and playwright. He is also the subject of the acclaimed documentary film The Lady in Question is Charles Busch. He is a two-time MAC award winner and has performed his cabaret act in many cities including San Francisco, Palm Springs, Provincetown, New Orleans, Atlanta, London, Paris and in New York at the Ballroom, Birdland and 54 Below.

Tom Judson has appeared on Broadway in the Roundabout Theater production of Cabaret at Studio 54. He toured the country in that show and in 42nd Street. He composed the score to Whit Stillman's indie film classic Metropolitan and has written songs for Sesame Street, Ann Magnuson, Lisa Kron and many others. Tom is also an author (Laid Bare), magazine columnist, and Huffington Post contributor.
