"BIZARRE BRUNCH" is Back! See Leslie Carrara-Rudolph Live on Stage at The Green Room 42

"BIZARRE BRUNCH" is back! Following a sold-out, pre-pandemic residency five-time Emmy Nominee Leslie Carrara-Rudolph returns to the New York City cabaret stage, making her debut at The Green Room 42.

Laugh along with Leslie as she takes a break from Sesame Street to entertain adults in this hilarious matinee cabaret filled with weird whimsy. Bring your appetite for a musical menu of savory stories, sweet surprises, and a cuisine of quirky characters as The Green Room 42 presents Humor With a Heart’s “Bizarre Brunch.” Featuring original music, comedy, and classic tunes with a twist, there’s always a new ingredient in this hilarious, heart-filled cabaret series. Directed by Jamie Donmoyer with Emmy Award winner Paul Rudolph on percussion and Michael Hicks on piano.

"She can think of something funny to say or do and have the humor out on the stage faster than you could ever move your eyes from stage left to stage right. Nothing throws her, and she just keeps moving, making each moment funnier than the next, making you think that miracles really do happen because that's what Leslie Carrara-Rudolph is: a miracle." - Stephen Mosher | Broadway World
