This is 40! A Cabaret Birthday Party
Saturday, November 23, Dressing Room Theatre 8:00pm

Starring Melissa McGuire & Friends
Music Direction by Tony Bellomy
Directed by Deb Failla

As the days dwindle to her 40th birthday, your favorite cabaret hostess Melissa McGuire reflects on 4 decades of her road less traveled. From shattered dreams of Broadway stardom to a gritty career in the bar business, a sweaty career in fitness, over 100 Tinder Dates as reported by The New York Post, two marriages, plus a shady family history, Melissa’s mid-life cabaret crisis is sure to deliver some revelations. Featuring songs by Stephen Sondheim, Jule Styne, Irving Berlin and other master Broadway composers, Melissa explores the fleeting innocence of young adulthood, the disappointment and jadedness of unrealized dreams, and remaining optimistic despite life’s setbacks. 

Motts Pelazza: Comedy Nights:
November 29 & 30, 2019  /  June 12 & 13, 2020

Dressing Room Theatre | Stamford’s own funny man Michael “Motts” Pelazza shares his brand of observational and improvisational insanity in 2 nights of absolutely side-splitting comedy. (As with most comedy nights, humor tends to adult material and may not be suitable for all audiences.)
NOVEMBER 2019 featuring "Goumba Johnny" Siliano

Radio Host, Comedian, Actor and Author was born in the Bronx and entered into the radio industry after many career changes. Shortly after graduating with a Bachelor of Science Degree from SUNY (State University of New York at Brockport), Johnny signed as a free agent in professional football with the New York Jets and then with the New York Giants. Although both opportunities were a dream for Johnny, he had to retire from the sport due to a neck injury.

After his football career ended, he established "Broadway Bodyguards" and escorted celebrities and famous businessmen in and outside the New York City area such as, Smokey Robinson, Sam Kinison, and Malcolm Forbes. With his natural quick wit and charm, Johnny has joined the ranks of other comedians by performing stand-up at popular comedy clubs like Carolineʼs in Manhattan, Mohegan Sun, Foxwoods in Connecticut, and the Borgata and Caesars Palace in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Johnny also entered and won a National talent search from the Friarʼs Club in New York City for roasting. Johnny has roasted celebrities like Matt Lauer, Vincent (Big Pussy) Pastore and Gary Dellabate.
