JEROME ELLIOTT in "Bat Out Of Jersey" with VICTOR JANUSZ
Jerome Elliott shares his wild ride from Jersey high-school theater nerd to Palm Springs cabaret artist, fulfilling the prophecy to "Sparkle, Neely, Sparkle!" Renaissance man and music director Victor Janusz opens with a short set.
Jerome Elliott is a prolific cabaret performer residing in Palm Springs. His critically acclaimed shows include Up In Flames, Sweet Nerd Of Youth, Crawling Back To Broadway, A Dry Heat and Bat Out Of Jersey. In 2008, Jerome participated in the Sixth Annual International Cabaret Conference at Yale University. He has since played major cabaret venues in New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, San Diego and St. Louis. An award-winning actor, Jerome performed Fred Barton's cult classic Miss Gulch Returns! to critical acclaim at Desert Ensemble Theatre in 2015; he also, conceived, directed and performed in Desert Ensemble Theatre's 2014 and 2015 opening night musical galas. Jerome won a 2013 Desert League Theatre Award for his performance in Standing On Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays.
One of the Northwest's most in-demand piano men, Victor Janusz has fronted his own band for 15 years, headlining at venues from Canlis, Columbia Tower Club and El Gaucho to Tulalip Casino and Salty's on Alki (where he has been resident "Weekend Brunch" Pianist for eleven years). His one-man show "HANDS SOLO: Pianoman" (directed by Lori Larsen) sold out an exclusive two-week engagement in ACT Theatre's 2014 season; the show also played the Duplex in NYC, the Arthur Newman in Palm Springs, and the Yale International Cabaret Conference where it was workshopped. Victor has enjoyed "Command Performances" for both President Barack Obama and Microsoft Chief Steve Ballmer!
