Cabaret artist Salty Brine continues his residency at The Red Room on East 4th Street with HE’S SO UNUSUAL, a dazzling evening of song and scene that places Cyndi Lauper’s debut album She’s So Unusual into a world of Prohibition and perfectly-coiffed pansies. No stranger to taking on entire albums in one evening, Brine’s past “Spectacular Living Record Collection Cabaret” shows have included Joni Mitchell’s Blue and the soundtrack to Dirty Dancing. There will be surprises, and there will definitely be impressive costumes. Even Ms. Lauper herself gave it her seal of approval. Originally slated to end as October began, Brine is bringing this particular show back for two encore performances.

He’s So Unusual stars Salty Brine and is directed by Max Reuben with dramaturgy by Taylor Adamson, arrangements by Ben Langhorst, costume design by One-Half Nelson, lighting design by Mike McGee, sound design by AJ Surasky, and stage management by Ryan Courtney. Also featuring Ben Langhorst, Chris Nattrass, Ben Arons, and Rob Mosher.
