Bruce Vilanch to Perform at Queens Theatre in the Park May 7
By: Dan Bacalzo · Feb 28, 2011 · New York
Emmy Award winner Bruce Vilanch will perform with special guests, The Bev Leslies, at Queens Theatre in the Park on Saturday, May 7 at 8pm.
Gagwriter for the Oscars and many Hollwood stars, Vilanch is considered one of today's most outrageous, uproarious personalities. His one-liners have tickled audiences when delivered by Bette Midler, Lily Tomlin, Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O'Donnell. Vilanch also starred in the Broadway production of Hairspray and his one-man off- Broadway show, Almost Famous.
The Bev Leslies are a unique powerful soulful band serving up a musical cocktail of greasey soul and smokey torch, rockin the house with tunes from Etta James to Tom Waits. They are fronted by Bette Sussman and Elain Caswell and also include John Putnam, Shawn Pelton, and Paul Socolow.
