Having fun poking fun at Broadway shows


The Madison Theatre at Molloy College will present Seth Rudetsky’s Big Fat Broadway Show for one hilarious and insightful afternoon this Sunday, Sept. 10 at 3 p.m.

An Emmy award-winning writer, radio host and accompanist to the stars, Rudetsky will take the audience on a journey that mocks and deconstructs Broadway musicals.

In this 90-minute, one-man show that is part critique, part comedy, Rudetsky will share the inside scoop on vocalists like Madonna, Bea Arthur and Patti LuPone.

For instance, he will dish about Cher playing four roles in the “West Side Story” TV special.

He will also explain the stage-to-screen transition of the leading ladies of “Evita,” while analyzing the hits sung by stars that should have never made it past the producer.

Rudetsky’s Big Fat Broadway Show will feature him lip-syncing, dancing, lecturing and laughing to his own personal audio and video collection.

He will also throw in some Broadway history and trivia for fun.

Sharon Eberson from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette said the following about the show: “You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you’ll cry again from laughing until your sides ache.”

Artistic director Angelo Fraboni says, “If you love Broadway, you will absolutely love this show!”

Rudetsky currently hosts his own radio show on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio called “Seth’s Big Fat Broadway,” as well as a talk show called “Seth Speaks.”

He has also been a pianist and performer in dozens of Broadway shows, including “Phantom of the Opera,” “Grease” and “Ragtime.”

Rudetsky says, “I’ve done this show in London, on the high seas and even in L.A. in front of Barbra Streisand. But I’ve wanted to do it on Long Island where I grew up.”

The Madison Theatre at Molloy College is located at 1000 Hempstead Ave. in Rockville Centre.
