Half vaudeville plus half Dada equals a whole lot of fun.
Following a pre-pandemic run at LaMama, performers Ellen Foley and Robert I. Rubinsky will present their Club Dada/Kabaret Kaput for a residency at Dixon Place beginning May 24–25. Additional dates will be announced.
In the show, Foley and Rubinsky play two ancient vaudevillians lost in space and time—forced to perform, belting tunes and hoofing while under the control of mysterious voice.
Tom Aulino directs with musical direction by Charly Roth and choreography by Robin Carregan. The Weimer voice over is Jonathan Freeman (the voice of Jafar in Aladdin).
Foley's credits include a few turns on Broadway, including Hair, Me and My Girl, and the Witch in Into the Woods, a role she created in the pre-Broadway tryout. As a rock vocalist, she released five albums and is perhaps best known for her collaboration with Meat Loaf, dueting on the song “Paradise by the Dashboard Light.”
Rubinsky (aka Robert I) was in the original company of Hair on Broadway, and co-wrote the cult musical Dementos.
