The Asbury Park Theater Company will present “Kabaret Kaput,” described as a surrealist concert-style rock cabaret, to open its 2024 season, April 5-7 at The Jersey Shore Arts Center in Ocean Grove.
Singer and actress Ellen Folley — who appeared on Broadway in “Into the Woods” and “Hair” and on television in “Night Court,” and sang the duet part in the Meat Loaf hit “Paradise by the Dashboard Light” — will co-star with Robert I. Rubinsky, and Remember Jones will co-produce and direct.
“Kabaret Kaput” was co-conceived by Foley and Rubinsky. It is described in a press release this way: “With an implicit theme of ageism, two ancient vaudevillians hang in a surreal Dada world, somewhere outside time and space. This duo is lost and trapped by memories of past glory, and by outside forces, they must continue to belt out classic tunes of hoofing into eternity as they try to break free and find themselves in spacetime.
“The cabaret concert features music made popular by Meat Loaf, Queen, Blondie, Radiohead, Broadway favorites, and many surprises.”
Shows are scheduled for April 5-6 at 8 p.m. and April 7 at 3 p.m. Visit asburyparktheatercompany.org.
