Gilmore Girls, Will & Grace and Arrested Development actor brings trio of characters to life in NYC premiere.
May 19 & 20 at Laurie Beechman Theatre
LA-based actor, writer and comedian SAM PANCAKE (Gilmore Girls, Arrested Development, Will & Grace, Curb Your Enthusiasm) brings his hit show HOT SWEET & STICKY to The Laurie Beechman Theatre for its NYC debut! Performances are May 19 & 20 at 7pm. Tickets are $22 and may be purchased at www.SpinCycleNYC.com, or by phone at 212-352-3101. The Laurie Beechman Theatre is located inside the West Bank Cafe at 407 West 42 Street (at 9th Ave.). Please note that there is a $20 food/beverage minimum at all performances at this venue, with a full bar and a full dinner menu available.
In HOT SWEET & STICKY, Sam Pancake portrays three different show-biz strivers: Helluva Bottom Carter, a vivacious southern drag queen with an agenda; Dame Peggy Wooten-Heifen-Smythe, a tipsy, aging Grande Dame of the British stage and screen; and Fritzie Zimmer, the self-proclaimed "world's oldest-living openly-gay stand-up comedian/chorus boy." With this trio of divas, severe costume changes, stellar lip-syncing, stunning wiggery, "songs", bitch-fits and laughter are guaranteed. This hilarious, self-penned almost-solo show also features Steven Wishnoff on the piano.
