Parallel Exit Gala 10/29 featuring Barry Lubin
Parallel Exit will produce a Halloween Gala that will include entertainment from the company and special guest star Barry Lubin (Grandma the Clown). The benefit takes place at 7:30pm on Monday October 29 at the 45th Street Theatre, 354 West 45th Street. Tickets are $75 for VIPs and $30 for patrons, and can be reserved at 917-407-7537or [email protected].
Barry Lubin is the creator of Grandma , one of New York Cityâ€™s best-loved cultural icons and the star of the Big Apple Circus. He appears this season in their 30th Anniversary show Celebrate! at Lincoln Center (Oct. 19-Jan. 13). Mr. Lubinâ€™s appearance at Parallel Exitâ€™s benefit will allow audiences the chance to see his beloved Grandma in a rare solo performance. Last season, Mr. Lubin starred with Parallel Exitâ€™s Joel Jeske in the Big Apple Circus show Step Right Up! and they both join Parallel Exit for an evening of Halloween fun, food, drink, raffle, and prizes.
Proceeds from the evening go towards producing Parallel Exitâ€™s newest show CUT TO THE CHASE, the â€œbiggest wee show in townâ€ as part of the holiday season at 59 E59 Theaters from December 5-30, 2007. This family vaudeville revue is directed by Mark Lonergan and features Laura Dillman, Mike Dobson, Joel Jeske, Juliet Jeske, Ryan Kasprzak, Andrea Kehler, and Derek Roland. Parallel Exit will present excerpts from the show as part of the eveningâ€™s festivities with Joel Jeske warming up the crowd with a special Halloween-themed performance.
VIP tickets include priority seating, a reception with Mr. Lubin and the performers, and recognition in the eveningâ€™s program and company website.
