A Funny Proposition Featuring Bruce Dow
October 8, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Catch Dora Award Winning, Broadway Bound, Actor/Singer, and Stratford Festival Veteran, Bruce Dow in A Funny Proposition, a cabaret / vaudeville of the middle-years with Mike Karloff on piano, for one night only at Kordazone Theatre on Tuesday, October 8, 2019.
What is more ridiculous than middle-age? Certain experiences are expected, but we are truly prepared for none of them. Aging parents, divorce, new love, starting again while in the middle of the journey? Life as a clown, lost in a never ending vaudeville, faced with a series of show- cards – the show must go on – no matter what’s next!
Developed by Mr. Dow over years of presenting very personal cabaret experiences, A FUNNY PROPOSITION sold out & wowed audiences at both Stratford Summer Music and in Prince Edward County as part of the Festival Players 2018 season.
Bruce Dow has appeared on Broadway in Jane Eyre, The Music Man, Anything Goes, Jesus Christ Superstar, and has just finished a pre-Broadway workshop of DIANA, a new musical from the creative teams behind the ®Tony Award Winning COME FROM AWAY and MEMPHIS which will open at the legendary Longacre Theatre, Spring 2020.
Mr. Dow has received 2 Dora Mavor Moore Awards for his work at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre; a Helen Hayes Nomination for his work in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum for the Shakespeare Theatre Company, Washington, DC; has appeared in leading roles in Shakespeare and musicals over 12 seasons as a member of the acting company at the Stratford Festival. He recently received his 4th Dora Award nomination for his work in Dr. Silver, a celebration of life for Outside the March and Musical Stage Companies.
