Markowitz Sings! Political Cabaret Comes To KCC

Who could resist seeing a musical extravaganza with songs such as “Don’t Touch My Junk,” “The Sarah Palin Ballad,” and Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz making a guest-star appearance to sing his “Bike Lane Cantata.”

Resist no more, since New York City’s “only political cabaret series” — Symphony Space’s “Thalia Follies: A Political Cabaret” — is coming to the Kingsborough Performing Arts Center (KPAC – 2001 Oriental Boulevard), April 16 at 8 p.m. Public radio host and Symphony Space Founding Artistic Director Isaiah Sheffer will lead a colorful cast of Broadway and cabaret entertainers, including Ivy Austin, David Buskin, Nora York, The Chalks, and more, in “Divided We Stumble,” a special edition of The Follies.

The series, which features songs and comedy sketches on issues New Yorkers hold dear, was created by Sheffer with producer Martin Sage, and will surely turn the day’s issues and events into insight and laughter… something we could all use a little more of these days.

Tickets for the “Thalia Follies: A Political Cabaret” are $25 and are on sale now at KPAC, 2001 Oriental Boulevard. Box office hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
