"A mind-popping Broadway debut! A magnified cabaret concert that has the heat and dazzle of great balls of fire." - The New York Times
Kiki DuRane is a brash, boozy, septuagenarian chanteuse. She's never much cared what other people think, but she's always willing to say what she thinks. Onstage with her stalwart accompanist and only living friend Herb, Kiki somehow stumbles her way through a selection of songs, punctuated by political rants, searching social commentary, and recollections of a lifetime filled with unforgettable memories. Not satisfied simply doing endless versions of cabaret standards, Kiki & Herb display their unique musical prowess reinventing popular songs by great 20th- and 21st-century artists like Wu-Tang Clan, Joni Mitchell, Styx, Pat Benatar, Radiohead, Nirvana, Bonnie Tyler, and Britney Spears.
The outrageous Kiki & Herb, the alter egos of Justin Bond and Kenny Mellman, bring their smash-hit Broadway show to Boston for the first time in a limited run. Fresh off having Kiki & Herb: Alive from Broadway named one of the ten best Broadway shows of 2006 by The New York Times, the duo's signature blend of old showbiz antics and indie-rock attitude will have Boston audiences swooning with adoration and doubling over with laughter.
Approximate Running Time: 1 hour, 50 minutes
