Follies-JamieCummings

May 12, 10:30PM: NYC’S DANCE MUSIC COMEDY ART SHOW!

Follies-JamieCummingsNow in its 5th Year, Ten-Foot Rat Cabaret features an inspired, curated monthly roster of thrilling music, smart comedy, amazing dance, clever storytelling, sexy burlesque, art and theatrical vaudeville spectacle. A great show in a legendary East Village venue: a NYC night out like no other!  (Featured Event in “What To Do in NYC Tonight”)

Saturday May 12, 10:30pm Show Features:

ELIZABETH TAYLOR’S GHOST:
Character genius Adrian Sexton (half of the acclaimed “Drinks with George and Martha: Improvised ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolfe?'”) brings you want you know you secretly desired and longed for: An evening of Q&A with the soused, swearing, violet-eyed ghost of Liz Taylor!  (See the writeup in BroadwayWorld.com)

HIPHOP VAUDEVILLE:
Dynamic, cool, funny, this show-ensemble led by Jordon Waters brings modern sensibilities to an ancient entertainment form: Rebirth of Rabbit’s Foot is about to explode with dance, patter, and energy.  (Rabbit’s Foot appears at Feinstein’s 54 Below, Joe’s Pub and won a 6-Month Residency at the PIT Theater!)

RAZOR-SHARP COMEDY
Audience favorite and Expat Katie Boyle (host and producer of “Transplants”) returns gives the Rat her unique take on coming from Ireland, surviving NYC, work and dating… and hopefully she’ll tell the hysterical story about her close relative who might have been an axe murderer!

BURLESQUE PERFORMANCE ART:
The Fishnet Follies‘ lead dancer Andrea Elizabeth Palesh breaks precedent with a daring, surprising, saucy Historical-themed Burlesque number as WWI spy Mata Hari!*

GORGEOUS MUSIC:
Singer-guitarist David Segovia brings sweeping sounds, beauty, passion and a “Sacred Fever.” He “plays with the blood.” The Rat is thrilled to have him as our May Musical Guest!

MONTHLY ART-ENTERTAINMENT BRILLIANCE:
The Rat’s not complete without the funny, clever, eccentric work of Bill Chambers. A horrifying parody of an Apple expo, the tale of Vincenzo the Chain-Smoking Monkey, re-animating a “dead” Teddy Ruxpin a la Mary Shelly — expect the unexpected. Bill is seen in the Frigid Festival, Canuck Cabaret, Rocco’s Witness Protection Revue and the annual East Village Antifolk Festival.

produced by Rob Dub and Gregory Levine
