Are you a James Bond aficionado? Are you a fan of the Bond theme songs, past and present? Do Broadway performers up close give you a thrill? Are you looking for a great date night geared towards mystery and intrigue, served with cocktails on the side? Then look no future than Shaken Not Stirred, the ultimate night of immersive cabaret for Bond fans, secret agents, and anyone looking for a good time!
The fabulously hot band plays a song list that includes the music of Adele, Aha, Sheryl Crow, Duran Duran, Garbage, Tom Jones, Paul McCartney, Nancy Sinatra, Sam Smith, and Jack White. The musical arrangements by Andy Peterson are downright sinful as Andy on piano, David Salter on guitar, Billy Smollen on bass and Derek Swink on drums rock the house.
Interactions with Barry Cade (the vocally wonderful, PJ Griffith), Anna Sassin (the sassy, Grace Stockdale), Mona Lott (the seductive, Amy Gordon), Bloomin’ Onions (Anna Copacabana), May Day (Kaitlyn Urban) and the dangerously sexual Romanova dancers (Katherine Hozier-Adams, Emily Palmquist and Katherine Roarty) give their all for your entertainment.
Conceived and created by Damien Gray, co-created and produced by Peter McCabe, with choreography by Katherine Roarty, this is a fabulous way to spend your Sunday evening.
My only complaints are the small plates are not fresh, expensive and rather minuscule, so eat before you go. Also, the sound design needs some fine-tuning, as the show plays on a decimal level that is rather loud.
Performances run Sunday nights through November 19th, at The Django, a Parisian jazz age inspired club inside The Roxy Hotel, 2 Avenue of the Americas.
There are two shows, one at 6 pm – Operation Golden Balls – and one at 9 pm – Dare If You Don’t. Get there early for magic acts and plenty of libations mixed with magic that was the best part of the show.
$49 – table seating, $69 – VIP reserved table, complimentary champagne.
On Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday catch Michael Garin on piano from 6-8
