Litzsinger (Beauty and the Beast, Amour) and Reinders (Wicked, Gypsy) will perform at the Feb. 28 "Fat City Lounge" as their music-comedy duo, TastiSkank. Billed as "the rockin' love child of Tenacious D and the Indigo Girls," TastiSkank will perform songs from their repertoire including "The Sex Song" and "I Heart Dirty Boys."
Nilaja Sun will perform her current Off-Broadway work No Child..., Feb. 28- March 4. (The show will not perform in New York while Sun is at the Colorado-based festivites.)
Hal Brooks directs No Child, which is billed as "an unflinching look into the New York City public school system... [in which Sun transforms] into the teachers, students, parents, administrators, janitors, and security guards who inhabit our public schools every day and are shaping the future of America."
Also featured at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival will be Alan Zweibel, who contributed to Billy Crystal's 700 Sundays. The Emmy Award winner and original "Saturday Night Live" writer will perform his new one-man show, Alan Zweibel: The History of Me, which concerns his SNL career.
