The title of the latest Kinsey Sicks show may be New York or Bust, but the Dragapella Barbershop quartet is sticking it out at home in San Francisco a little longer, bringing their newest piece back to the New Conservatory April 8-30.
The Sicks are still hoping to bring the show to New York City for an Off Broadway run in late spring, but there is no word yet on when or where the Manhattan stint will occur.
Performing together for five years, the Sicks' previous productions at the New Conservatory have included Sicks Appeal, The Balled Sopranos: At Home with the Kinsey Sicks, GreatesTits and Motel-Sicks. The group's twin CDs, "Dragapella" (1997) and "Boyz 2 Girlz" (1999), feature the new a cappella classics "Don't Be Happy? Worry," "Beaver," "AZT," "Titanic: Why Does Celine Go On?," "I Will Swallow Him," "Baby Dyke," and the Yiddish classic, "Papirossen," among others.
Tickets are $22. The New Conservatory Theatre is located at 25 Van Ness Avenue near Market Street. For reservations, call (415) 861-8972. The Kinsey Sicks are on the web at http://www.kinseysicks.com.
