About the show

Ruby Lynn Reyner directs and appears in her musical satire, "Singin' in the ER," a bad trip to the hospital that's performed in Playhouse of the Ridiculous style.  More…

From the show:

The piece is inspired by ordeals in a New York City hospital suffered by the author and her husband. Now she believes that the only way to deal with such life changing experiences is through unrestrained, exorbitant laughter. The score includes the song, "Biggest Balls in Town," written by Reyner and Jackie Curtiss. Ms. Reyner was a star of Vaccarro's Playhouse of the Ridiculous, appearing in "Conquest of the Universe," "Heaven Grand In Amber Orbit" and "Trilby in La Bohemia" (Drama Desk Award for Acting), among others and starting her well-known band, Ruby and the Rednecks, with musicians she worked with in the Playhouse.

Quirky, Raunchy, Hilarious, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You want to step back to the days of the Playhouse of the Ridiculous and the early days of off off Broadway.

Don't see it if Glitter, live music and over the top raunchy humor aren't your thing.
