Directed by Taylor Negron, Who Loves You Baby? runs through Aug. 28 for five performances only.

Written by Hunter Nelson, the "posthumous lounge act" stars DiMenna as 1970s sex icon Telly Savalas.

Who Loves You Baby?, according to press notes, "turns the conventions of traditional cabaret to its own purposes, diagnosing and—before your very eyes—curing this generation’s all-around cultural incontinence, forcibly remedying our decade’s ever-weakening grasp on romance and masculine sexual identity. This is all achieved through the blunt reminiscences and unapologetic posturing of the late great Telly Savalas, the no-nonsense Greek-American actor best known as TV’s Lt. Theo Kojak, who subsequently had a rather successful career as an interpretive recording artist, gambling enthusiast, and would-be seducer of the entire known universe."

The Bowery Poetry Club is located at 308 Bowery (between Hudson and Bleecker Streets). For more information, visit www.tellysavalaslive.com. For tickets, call (866) 468-7619 or visit www.FringeNYC.org.
