Vaudeville Is Back and it Wants to Buy You a Drink!
After decades of plying their wares in dive bars and seedy back-alley clubs, vaudeville is back and making a triumphant return to its classic venue: The Stage!
Bringing vaudeville into the light for a whole new generation, Richard Kent Green and Nelson Lugo, in association with the WorkShop Theater Company, proudly present “VAUDEVILLE NOUVEAU an Extravaganza of Burlesque Proportions”. VAUDEVILLE NOUVEAU is a brand new monthly late-night variety show that will feature a rotating cast of musicians, jugglers, freaks, illusionists, ecdysiasts, escapists, sideshow artists, comedians, ventriloquists and a whole lot more! With its ever-changing line-up of guest artists, VAUDEVILLE NOUVEAU strives to present the most unique and entertaining novelty acts available. Every show is jam packed with side-splitting comedy, jaw dropping stunts, rocking music and scantily-clad burlesque beauties. Served up with tongues firmly planted in cheek, one never knows what new and strange acts will appear on the VAUDEVILLE NOUVEAU stage. But one thing is certain, it will be amusing, amazing and unforgettable.
VAUDEVILLE NOUVEAU is a late-night show that is scheduled to run once a month on Saturday the ‘teenth. As a mnemonic reminder, VAUDEVILLE NOUVEAU will perform on Saturdays which have dates ending in “teenth” (13th, 14th, …19th). Tickets are only 15 dollars, beer and wine are served, and the first drink is FREE. Dates, times and talent line-up information can all be accessed online at either VaudevilleNouveau.com or at workshoptheater.org
