Bedford & Bowery on CHERCHEZ LA FEMME

Cherchez La Femme

Continues through June 12 at La MaMa, 66 E 4th Street, East Village. 7pm (Sundays at 4pm), tickets are $35 ($30 for students/seniors). More info here. 

Classic experimental theater hub La MaMa isn’t exactly known for churning out toe-touching tunes and sweeping glitzy dance routines. But it is known for bringing surprises, so I guess it has made a wise choice in its new production of musical Cherchez La Femme. Written by August Darnell, Bronx-bred leader of 1980s Latin-Caribbean-disco music group Kid Creole and the Coconuts, and NYU professor of punk and reggae Vivien Goldman, this show places King Creole songs of yore and new compositions alongside infectious dancing and a story that alternates between New York and the Caribbean. It sure sounds like a lot of fun.
