Broadway. We all know it. We all love it. Distorted Broadway asks and answers the simple question: What if your favorite Broadway shows didn't end up being quite what you expected? What if Avenue Q really turned out to be a ballet about south Brooklyn or if Jersey Boys was about the Jersey Shore? What would Oklahomo, Trannie, The Queen & I, The Book of Morons, or West Village Story be like? And what the heck does "Turn Off The Dark" mean, anyway? Find out in this truly wicked 70-minute, non-stop musical theater tribute, where everything gets twisted -- even the happy ending!

This ever-evolving 75-minute non-stop extravaganza features high-energy dance numbers, comedy, dazzling costumes and lip-syncing "ladies"-- with a bit of Cher, Patti LuPone, Idina Menzel and Rihanna thrown in for good measure! This show is certain to offer a happy ending -- if you believe in fairies, that is!

Fiore Barbini makes his NYC cabaret debut in I'm Still Here My Story: The Songs of Leading Ladies. He's an actor, singer, and dancer who's toured with Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and A Chorus Line, has regional credits that include The Full Monty, Sunday in the Park With George, Singin' in the Rain, Damn Yankees, George M!, Funny Girl, Hello, Dolly!, and performed in cabaret stagings of Grease, Chicago, and Cabaret. He might also be known by some as his adult entertainment alter ego Hugh Hunter. In his first solo outing, he tells the story of his 31 years in show business with his own twist — the songs he sings to tell that story were originated by his favorite Broadway leading ladies! Songs include "Not a Day Goes By," "Meadowlark," a medley from Miss Saigon, Jesus Christ Superstar, Jekyll & Hyde, and Les Misérables, and "I'm Still Here." At 42, Fiore is back in NYC and ready to get back on the boards because in his own words, "I'm still here."
Jim Caruso's Cast Party, a popular weekly event on Monday nights, is now at Birdland!
"No one can be called a true New Yorker until they've been to the Cast Party, which is to Broadway what the Conde-Nast cafeteria is to publishing. Divas and dapper-dans insouciantly sip cocktails while watching each other sing and perform at the open-mic event during Broadway's dark night," says Next Magazine. Broadway impresario Jim Caruso hosts a combination open-mic, networking event and party in which the biggest stars on Broadway relax on their night off by performing their favorite songs in an informal setting. Performers are accompanied by Billy Stritch, pianist and musical director for Liza Minnelli and Charles Aznavour.

After 19 years in downtown Manhattan, this dinner show transferred in 2012 to the Times Square area, where the shenanigans continue today.

The entire show runs the gamut from R& B and improvisational Jazz to soul,funk,blues, rock & roll and more. It is a bold and daring nightclub act for the modern world.
