The latest Deconstructing with Seth Rudetsky installment will spotlight the seventies television show "The Brady Bunch Variety Hour." Rudetsky, who is also a stand-up comic, will deliver running commentary about the program, scene dissection and "hilariously harsh judgments." According to production notes, Rudetsky will "ponder the gal who replaced "Jan," gush over Ann B. Davis’s bedazzling pantsuit and muse on the H.R. Pufnstuf chipmunk dancing behind guest star Tony Randall in a classic episode." Show time is 8 PM. Creator and host of Seth's Broadway Chatterbox, Seth Rudetsky has served as a pit pianist and/or conductor for such Broadway shows as 42nd Street, The Full Monty, The Phantom of the Opera, Mamma Mia! and The Producers. He also conceived the idea for the all-star Chess concert to benefit the Actors' Fund of America as well as the two previous benefit concerts, Funny Girl and Dreamgirls. Rudetsky was a member of the comedy writing team for "The Rosie O'Donnell Show" for two years, and his awards include the Duplex's Stars of Tomorrow, the Backstage Bistro and the Funniest Gay Male in New York. He was also the author and star of the recent one man, GLAAD-nominated show Rhapsody in Seth.
