It’s where The Mikado meets The Music Man. Where the HMS Pinafore sets sail forBrigadoon. Where The Pirates of Penzance take shore leave On the Town. It’s I’ve Got a Little Twist—a one-of-a-kind show that proves the Gilbert & Sullivan repertoire is as fun, fresh, and full-of-life as, well, three little maids from school! See for yourself as New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players celebrates the legacy of Gilbert & Sullivan in American musical theater, featuring favorites from Rodgers & Hammerstein, Bernstein, Sondheim, Lerner & Loewe, Meredith Willson, and Jerry Herman. Life is a cabaret and so is this show—and as we all know, it’s always more entertaining when you add a little twist.

Hot on the heels of its wicked predecessor Forbidden Broadway,Forbidden Hollywood has come to town, guns blazing and smokin’ with attitude. Forbidden Hollywood cuts through tinseltown’s bombast and star power with surgical precision. Blockbusters like Star Wars, Titanic, Harry Potter, Shrek, Lord of the Rings, Austin Powers and Moulin Rougereceive the comic once-over. No film, brand-new or venerable, is safe when creator Gerard Alessandrini wields his nasty pen!

Alessandrini keeps the show topical by constantly updating the material. Other actors who are satirized include Keanu Reeves, Melanie Griffith, Cameron Diaz, Jim Carrey, Nicole Kidman, Tom Cruise and long famous stars like Katharine Hepburn, Jimmy Stewart, Marlene Dietrich, Doris Day, Judy Garland, Marlon Brando, Barbara Streisand, Audrey Hepburn, Louis Armstrong, Ann-Margaret and Liza Minelli.

“Hilarious! Get a ticket immediately!”- Los Angeles Times

CHANTICLEER: An Orchestra of Voices
Thursday, May 7 at 7:30 pm

Called “the world’s reigning male chorus” by The New Yorker magazine, and named Ensemble of the Year by Musical America, the San Francisco-based, GRAMMY® award-winning ensemble Chanticleer embarks upon its 36th season in 2013-14, performing in 23 of the United States. A winter international tour of 9 European countries will see debuts in Dublin, Moscow, and St. Petersburg; and returns to Paris, Vienna, Budapest, Prague, Antwerp, Rotterdam, and Bruges. Praised by the San Francisco Chronicle for their “tonal luxuriance and crisply etched clarity,” Chanticleer is known around the world as “an orchestra of voices” for the seamless blend of its twelve male voices ranging from countertenor to bass and its original interpretations of vocal literature, from Renaissance to jazz, and from gospel to venturesome new music.
