Carbondale natives John Baldino and Erin Canedy will lead a cast of Jonathan Alunni of Archbald and Lauren Smith of Scranton with music direction by Linda Houck of Luzerne in this outrageous night of music and comedy. “Completely Inappropriate in NYC” will mark John & Erin Cabaret Productions’ New York City debut after performing in venues all over northeastern Pa. since 2005. The company has been growing in cast, production value and bookings since December of last year.
“Our debut in Manhattan is the next logical step in our expansion in the professional theater world,” said Baldino, who serves as Executive Producer and Lead Performer. “We expect this to be the beginning of a regular series in New York and plan to expand into Philadelphia next year.”
“We’ll never forget our roots here in Carbondale and northeastern Pennsylvania and will always play the venues of our region,” said Canedy, Producer and Lead Performer. “We’re excited, though, for the opportunity to take the talents we’ve developed here to a new audience in the heart of American musical theater.”
“Completely Inappropriate in NYC” is not for the faint of heart. From love to sex to religion to coffee, no topic is off limits in this hilarious cabaret.
“Comedy is everywhere,” saidys Baldino. “It’s all in how you look at things. This cabaret is a collection of music that takes a lighthearted look at some heavy issues. It’s our way of telling our audience not to take life too seriously and find the good and the humor in every situation.”
“This night will leave you in pain and in tears – from laughing,” said producer and lead performer Erin Canedy. “It’s a great night out and a chance to just relax, laugh and forget about life for a couple hours.”
