Seeking Asylum!, which marks a long-awaited reunion for Justin Vivian Bond and Kenny Mellman, plays Joe's Pub April 21-May 6. The duo were Tony-nominated for Kiki and Herb: Alive on Broadway in 2006.
The entire run is sold-out.
Here’s how their latest show is billed: “In 2007, after triumphant successes on Broadway, Carnegie Hall and the International Concert Circuit, cabaret legends Kiki and Herb decided to take a break from the grind of live performance and touring in order to explore more mainstream opportunities in film, television, and journalism which ultimately culminated in a brief stint as Middle East correspondents for Al Jazeera. Having recently been released from undisclosed locations in Syria and Thailand respectively, Kiki and Herb are anxiously awaiting their return to Joe's Pub with a brand new show Kiki and Herb: Seeking Asylum!”
Seeking Asylum! is part of New York Voices, the Joe’s Pub artist commissioning program. This run is also part of Bond’s yearlong celebration of V’s 25th anniversary of cabaret, which commenced with the revival of Dixie McCall’s Patterns for Living, V’s first-ever cabaret show and collaboration with Mellman, and continues monthly with shows from Bond’s catalog.
