Sandra Bernhard, who was last seen in New York City performing her cabaret act at downtown Manhattan's Joe's Pub (and turning down a role in The Rocky Horror Show), will return to the Off-Broadway stage later this month in a new show, The Love Machine. The limited run, Dec. 27-Jan. 14, 2001, will play the Jane Street Theatre in Greenwich Village.

The actress-performance artist has starred in such Off-Broadway solo turns as Without You, I'm Nothing and I'm Still Here, Damn It. The latter transferred for a brief Broadway run two seasons ago.

At Joe's Pub, where she played last July, Bernhard brought her usual mix of comedy, commentary and tongue-in cheek song stylings. Backing her up was a five-piece combo.

According to an advertisement, Bernhard will play 8 PM shows, Wednesday through Saturday and a 7 PM show on Sundays. On New Year's Eve, the show will begin at 10 PM. Tickets ($35) are available through Tele-Charge.
