News   '80s Singer Lisa Lisa Joins Off-Broadway's Donkey Show, April 11 If Deborah Gibson can be in Cabaret, why shouldn't another '80s pop star, Lisa Lisa (of Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam fame), join the cast of Off-Broadway's long running The Donkey Show at El Flamingo. The songstress will play one weekend only, April 11-12.

Rising to fame with such hits as "I Wonder If I Take You Home", "All Cried Out," "Head to Toe" and "Lost In Emotion," Lisa Lisa brought a new Latin crossover into popular dance music. The singer is a multi-platinum recording artist. The Donkey Show, described as a "Midsummer Night's disco," opened as a six week limited engagement at NYC's El Flamingo on August 18, 1999. Created and directed by Diane Paulus and Randy Weiner, The Donkey Show resets Shakespeare's classic comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream into the disco scene of the 1970s. Nightclub impresario Oberon and exotic dancer Titania find themselves in the midst of a timeless lovers' quarrel Bottom is replaced by a pair of afro-ed, disco-dancing twins. Donkey features songs that defined the disco era like "I Love the Nightlife," "Ring My Bell," "Car Wash," and "You Sexy Thing."
