Michael Kushner Sings His Hits For Pride
June 30, 2021
Join Broadway legend (in his mind) Michael Kushner as he regales his glory days on Broadway (again, in his mind) while singing the tunes that made him famous (once again… in his mind). This vaudevillian, gay romp is the perfect musical theatre comedy way to celebrate PRIDE as we collectively recover from a global pandemic. This show was reviewed by The Jewish Journal as “not to be believed, mainly because we haven’t seen it yet!”
Enjoy personal and hysterical stories complete with tunes from musicals such as The Producers, I’m Getting My Act Together and Taking It on the Road, Gypsy, and more. Featuring special guest Alice Ripley.
