Winter Pageant 2011: The Teeny Lounge Presents Closing (Theater and Galleries) Recommended The Short List (Theater)

When: Saturdays, Sundays. Continues through Jan. 8 2012

Clad in period attire (long white gloves, fedoras) culled from an onstage costume rack, young patrons sip chocolate milk as an evening at the 1950s-style Teeny Lounge unfolds before them. The pint-size salon stars world-renowned lounge singer Ricky D. Fish (a brilliant Alex Balestrieri), singing about world travel and musing on his brushes with everyone from Cinderella to Justin Bieber. But Balestrieri also turns the spotlight on the audience, creating a two-tiered comedy act that works as both kitschy homage and child's play. Lanky, winsome Alice Wedoff brings pure joy to the show as Penny, Fish's mute accompanist and collaborator. —Elly Fishman

Price: $10-$20
