(10.21) During the worst days of the quarantine and the past administration, Randy Rainbow’s videos provided a welcome break from the horror and plenty of good laughs. Sadly, we still have a need for his unique brand of goofy, musical lampooning; the good news is, he’s doing it live and we can all go out now.
America’s favorite musical satirist, Randy Rainbow, is taking his act on the road! On The Pink Glasses Tour, the four-time Emmy-nominated singer, writer, and comedian will take on the hottest topics and skewer politicos of the day as only he can, as he brings his most viral video song parodies to life onstage. Featuring live accompaniment by some of Broadway’s finest musicians, the show will also include personal stories, an audience Q&A, and brand new original songs written by Rainbow with Marc Shaiman (Hairspray, Mary Poppins Returns) and Alan Menken (Little Shop of Horrors, Beauty and the Beast).
Mix in some personal stories, a few wardrobe changes, and an audience Q&A, and “you’ve got yourself a fabulous evening. It’s going to be mahvelous, dahling!”
All ages. Running time: 90 minutes. No cameras allowed.
