News   Justin Bond of Kiki & Herb to Perform at Spiegeltent Sept. 22
Justin Bond, one half of the stage team known as Kiki & Herb, will perform at the Spiegeltent Sept. 22.

The show, in which Bond is joined by his back-up group The Freudian Slippers, is described as "an autobiographical melange of music and video in which Justin tells all about his years teetering on the edge of the sidewalk between the nightclub and the gutter from San Francisco to New York to London."

Kiki & Herb Alive on Broadway, the first stab at Broadway for the cabaret duo Kiki and Herb, ended its limited run Sept. 10 at the Helen Hayes Theatre.

The Spiegeltent—a smallish, art nouveau structure in which booths and mirrors surround a small playing stage—was brought to New York by Ross Mollison and P.S. 122 artistic director Vallejo Gantner. A beer garden sits next to it, offering an array of handcrafted beers from New York City's Heartland Brewery, as well as a variety of food choices.

According to press materials: "The Spiegeltent pavilions were used as traveling dance halls and wine tasting marquees since the early 20th century. The intricate, historic design consists of woven balloon canopies, a circular teak dance floor, stained cut glass windows, intimate booths, an ornate bar, beveled mirror columns and a magnificent Art Nouveau chandelier at its breathtaking center. There are only a handful of these and legendary 'tents of mirrors' left in the world. An awesome sight of wood, mirrors, canvas, leaded glass and velvet and brocade details, each has its own personality and style offering a unique entertainment experience for audiences."

The venue capacity of the Spiegeltent is 400 standing, 320 seated, and 300 with full table and chair cabaret seating. Additional ticket information is available through Ticket Central, (212) 279-4200, daily from 12 noon to 8 PM, or on line via www.spiegelworld.com.
