My prolific friend Niegel Smith is directing a new show starring Lady Rizo at Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater in NYC. Niegel and I worked on Andrew Barrett’s award-winning play RAINY DAYS AND MONDAYS for the NY Fringe Festival. It was later published by Samuel French as CIRCUITRY. Niegel’s new musical show features the talents of Lady Rizo.

Shows: 9:30 PM – November 04; 9:30 PM – November 11; 9:30 PM – November 18; 7:00 PM – November 16. Price: $20 in Advance; $25 at Door.

Show Description: Lady Rizo has recently been ordained by the temple of glitter. Aggressively feminine and possessing a distinct absence of inhibition, she will lead you in a night praising the power of song, giggles, madness and glamorous glances in this new collaboration with director Niegel Smith (Assistant Director of FELA).

The ‘Cabaret Superstar‘ (New York Magazine), comedienne and chanteuse revives the genre by creating vintage arrangements & theatrical explorations of pop songs from every decade. Lady Rizo (nee Amelia Zirin-Brown) co-created the cult caburlesque spectacular Lady Rizo & the Assettes in 2005 and has been in residence with Joe’s Pub with her sold out monthly show for over two years. She has collaborated on albums with Moby and Yo Yo Ma; and in 2010 won her first Grammy on an album with the acclaimed cellist. She is the Mistress of Ceremonies for current hotspot The Darby, a decadent modern supper club in the West Village.
