About the show

Part of 59E59's Brits Off Broadway fest, this solo show by comedic singer/songwriter Dillie Keane (of Fascinating Aïda fame) features new tunes and old favorites that showcase her quirky take on life. More…

Funny, gutsy, and always brutally honest, Dillie Keane writes songs that speak of a lifetime fully, if not always sensibly, lived. Keane will break your heart, mend it again, and have it sent to the cleaners for pressing. As the founder of the satirical singing group Fascinating Aïda (three-time nominees for the Drama Desk Award and London's Olivier Awards for Best Entertainment), Keane has been entertaining and delighting audiences for more than three decades.

"If you're looking for a cabaret entertainment with the fizz and bittersweet kick of a gin and tonic, consider Dillie Keane's intimate get-together...If her show is sometimes deeply felt, it is never maudlin, and her wicked, coruscating sense of humor is never out of reach...Dillie Keane has a st...

"Take a pinch of Noel Coward’s patter, a soupcon of Elaine Stritch’s sass blended with a dash of Tallulah Bankhead’s slurry growl, a twinkle of Anthony Hopkins’s acting chops, and a smidgen of Lotte Lenya’s world weariness. Mix them all together and what you get is Dillie Keane...Keane demonstrat...
