DECEMBER 27, 2019 at 9:30pm
AT FEINSTEIN’S/54 BELOW, BROADWAY’S SUPPER CLUB,
FEINSTEIN’S/54 BELOW, Broadway’s Supper Club, presents Joe Gulla in The Bronx Queen on December 27th at 9:30pm. Playwright/actor/reality star Joe Gulla, best known for his award-winning shows, Bronx Queen Trilogy, Garbo, Gay.Porn.Mafia, Sleeping With The Fish, and his sold-out engagements at Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater, makes his Feinstein’s/54 Below debut with The Bronx Queen.
In homage to legendary monologist Spalding Gray, Joe sits alone at a table, notebook and water bottle at the ready as he (bait and!) tackles the issue of growing up a gay Italian boy… in the Bronx! Provocative, poignant, hysterical, The Bronx Queen, with its electric combination of spoken word and song, packs a Bronx-style emotional punch and promises real tears from equal parts crying and laughing!
This very special Feinstein’s/54 performance of The Bronx Queen will feature special guest, internationally acclaimed singer, actress, and concert artist Natalie Douglas. Natalie is a two-time Bistro, Nightlife, and eleven-time MAC Award Winner and has appeared at Carnegie Hall, Rose Theatre, and The Appel Room at Jazz at Lincoln Center, and The Town Hall among others and has produced over 70 different concerts at her musical home, Birdland Jazz Club.
