The Tribute Artist

Written By: Charles Busch

Directed By: Bethe Ensey

This show, directed by the talented Bethe Ensey, is a wonderfully frantic farce about the insane, illegal, and frequently criminal measures that desperate people will stoop to just to get their hands on a nice piece of Manhattan real estate.

Expect Busch's signature blend of quick-witted banter and gender-bending hijinks in this play from the master of Off-Broadway farce. Author of DIE MOMMIE DIE!, THE TALE OF THE ALLERGIST’S WIFE, and THE DIVINE SISTER, Charles Busch weaves a frenzied tale with a cast of characters that is both human and hilarious.

We are delighted that Mr. Busch has agreed to attend our season opener. Details on his special one-night, one-man-show performance "CHARLES BUSCH: That Boy, That Girl" are below.

September 23, 2017

The inimitable Charles Busch, two-time MAC Award winner, Tony nominee, and drag legend, brings to Terrific New Theatre an eclectic program of songs both contemporary and from the past.

 

New York Times critic Stephen Holden wrote, “He has the gift of comic gab like few other entertainers. Innately funny, endearing and acutely intelligent, he also has claws. For an audience, the possibility of being scratched, although remote, lends his humor a bracing edge. ”

 

Accompanied by his dashing longtime musical director, Tom Judson, Charles combines hilarious personal reminiscence, character sketches and superb storytelling through song into one glittering and glamorous evening in cabaret.
