A duo lost, trapped by memories of past glory and by outside forces, they keep on belting out classic tunes and hoofing into eternity.
This is KABARET KAPUT.
by Robert I Rubinsky and Ellen Foley.
ELLEN FOLEY has been in some form of show business longer than she can remember. The thing that never dies, and she’s glad of it, is Paradise by the Dashboard Light with Meat Loaf. Through it she remains a horny teenager forever. And in no particular order, there is - Night Court, Ian Hunter, creates the Witch in Sondheim’s Into the Woods, the Clash, One Life to Live. Fatal Attraction, Hair, Blue Oyster Cult, Tootsie, hausfrau, Pandoras Box, Married to the Mob, etc, etc. “Get the picture”? “Yes, we see”

Besides Hair, he was Herod in Jesus Christ Superstar, co-wrote the cult musical Dementos with Marc Shaiman, and in this century, he was Bobby the Middle Aged Celebrity his late night off-Broadway tell all.
