Louisa, Requested is a musical cabaret revue show with a twist: it’s all improvised. Louisa, a semi-washed up Broadway diva, is back in her old stomping ground for one night. Singing through her “repertoire” of original, legendary show tunes and ballads, Louisa will lead the audience through a (totally improvised) journey of her monumental career.
Lulu Krause is delighted to be returning to 54 Below, after making her debut there this past winter. A former member of ComedySportz Philly, Lulu has been performing both straight and musical improv for five years. Her work has been seen at Dixon Place, The Duplex, the PIT, and The Magnet — where you can catch her performing musical improv every Tuesday night. She was recently nominated for a “My Favorite Child Award” by her mother, but lost (humbly) to her brother, who received his PhD in Math at age 25.
