THE REVUE returns with the Cabaret Edition to Hollywood’s legendary Bourbon Room on September 17
Last spring, pandemic-weary audiences returned to the theater with a heightened appetite for farce, satire and fantasy. They and critics have been very pleased with “THE REVUE,” a groundbreaking new parody of film and theater classics that pokes fun at the very fact that “not everything should be a musical.”
On September 17, THE REVUE returns with a special cabaret edition featuring brand new songs based on favorite movies turned into musicals including: Top Gun, Caddyshack, The Empire Strikes Back, Aliens, Men in Black, The Princess Bride, There’s Something About Mary, Pulp Fiction, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and many more. The new edition will also feature a live band performing in the style of “Rock of Ages”.
Conceived and produced by composer Jim Dooley (Pushing Daisies, Lemony Snicket’s: A Series of Unfortunate Events and Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Beginning), this production will be directed by Rick Batalla (Being the Ricardos) and consulted with Troubadour Theater Company Founder Matt Walker. Returning cast members include Katie DeShan (The Parent Trap), Tiffany Daniels, (Grace & Frankie), Isaac Robinson-Smith (Final Fantasy), and newcomer Philip McNiven (Scrubs, CSI).
Said Dooley “The audiences at the Colony Premiere proved to us that this is the type of show the world needs right now, and we are thrilled to bring it back by popular demand to the iconic Bourbon Room which once hosted so many great music parodied especially from ‘Rock of Ages.’ What makes the series special is that it is truly accessible to everyone, thanks to a simple familiarity with memorable classic moments and characters from cinema and TV. However, we’ve spiced up this version, so leave the kids at home this time!”
As a popular revival of the first edition, the new show will also feature an array of recognizable iconic props from Broadway movies and shows such as the “neuralyzer” from Men In Black, Judge Smails’ hat from Caddyshack, the Darth Vader’s helmet from The Empire Strikes Back and medieval wine goblets from The Princess Bride.
