The Presenters Dolan have announced dates for two cabaret shows to be presented this spring at the Kranzberg Arts Center, 501 N. Grand.
Singer/actors Lara Buck (pictured, above left) and Donna Weinsting (below left) will team up for "Bold, Bawdy, Blonde - and Funny," an election-year themed show billed as "standards meet standup and politics greets parody" that will play at 8:00 p.m., Friday, March 30 and Saturday, March 31.
Buck has done political parody before, spending two years in the satiric musical revue Political Idol, while Weinsting is a veteran of local theater productions and winner of a Kevin Kline award for "outstanding lead actress in a play" in the New Jewish Theatre's 2006 production of From Door To Door. Tim Schall will direct, with Greg Schweizer serving as music director.
The following month, Jeffrey M. Wright will return to the Kranzberg stage with "Southern Roots" at 8:00 p.m. Friday, April 13 and Saturday, April 14. Described as "an evening of songs inspired by growing up south of the Mason-Dixon line," Wright's show will feature Carol Schmidt as music director.
Tickets are $25 each for "Bold, Bawdy, Blonde - and Funny," $20 each for "Southern Roots," and can be purchased online at http://www.licketytix.com/ or by phone at 314-725-4200, ext 10.
