Sh*ts & Giggles (NOT Your Average Musical Revue) Sun. Jan. 11, 2015, 4 PM Roxy & Dukes Roadhouse 745 Bound Brook Rd., Dunellen, New Jersey 08812 $15 at the door - all ages A crazy cast of elite vocalists, actors, dancers, comedians, a live band and visual artists come together to present a two-hour, non-stop, high-energy presentation of songs and scenes from your favorite musicals, movies, as well as a few covers and originals, in ways never before seen. The cast includes Patricia Allende, Jean Navarr Caponigro, Ryan Crowley-Hughes, Dan Gualtieri, Erin Roche Gualtieri, Sarah Hannah, Jamie Marie Hannigan, Amazing Amy Contortionist, Cyle Jackson, Nikki Manx, JaQuita May, Lex Rex, Meg Robertson, Jess Silverman, Carolyn Wells, Bobby Wolfe and Scott Wolfson.

As the show’s flyer touts: “Theater geeks and sideshow freaks, don’t be afraid of what you might witness! Give in to the voices, for we are all misfits. Experience laughter, tears, joy and rage. And if we like what we see from you, we’ll invite you on stage…” Among the antics will be a spectacular opportunity for audience member makeovers, rather transformations. Top hair and makeup artists from NYC and NJ will transform brave audience members into their favorite freakshow character from a movie or television show, or their very own crazy creation. All while the cast performs around them. Proceeds will benefit Arts Access. The Arts Access program empowers individuals with disabilities to create art without boundaries. www.artsaccessprogram.org Live art will also be created during this performance.

“Amazing Amy got positive coverage in an article in The Jewish Daily Forward! Amazing Amy, a contortionist whose rubber body is nothing short of mind-boggling, also incorporates her heritage into her shtick, performing numbers that celebrate — and gently mock — her Jewish roots, such as “Yoga Yenta.” Amazing Amy has truly lived the outsider’s life — not as a Jew, but as a mature woman. Indeed, she feels she is not getting a lot of work because she’s “not young, glamorous or sexy. But I’m constantly challenging age and gender stereotypes,” she said. When I saw Amazing Amy performing at “The Gong Show Live,” she was doing ”Yoga Trek,” proclaiming “to boldly stretch where few seniors have stretched before.” ”
