13-02-2019 12:00:00 13-02-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Dr. Bradley's Fabulous Functional Narcissism Dr. Bradley Jones return to the stage on Feb. 13th, 2019 with a performance of the hilarious and moving coming-of-age story, "Dr. Bradley’s Fabulous Functional Narcissism…The Psychoanalytic Odyssey of a Once Glorified Chorus Boy," to benefit The Actors Fund. Dr. Bradley’s musical memoir has been packing in SRO audiences for months at clubs and theaters in New York, Connecticut and Los Angeles, CA. “Dr. Bradley wielded his psychological prowess like a surgeon’s scalpel, with the exquisite timing of a Borscht-Belt comic.” – David Sabella, CabaretHotSpot 100% of net proceeds will go to The Actors Fund. Founded in 1882, The Actors Fund is a national human services organization that fosters stability and resiliency, and provides a safety net for performing arts and entertainment professionals over their lifespan. Through offices in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, The Fund serves everyone in film, theater, television, music, opera, radio and dance with programs including social services and emergency financial assistance, health care and insurance counseling, housing, and secondary employment and training services. Visit www.actorsfund.org. Dr. Bradley’s Fabulous Functional Narcissism…The Psychoanalytic Odyssey of a Once Glorified Chorus Boy regales us through 70 minutes, with Jones applying a rapier wit and his psychoanalytic expertise (that shingle is REAL) to true tales of his early childhood as a budding theater queen, nearly ten years on Broadway in A Chorus Line, backstage life and excessive drug use, living through the AIDS pandemic, a murder and making his decision to pursue a new career. In the penultimate scene, he recounts his own 15 years of psychoanalysis in under seven minutes in tap shoes. The show features mainly the music of Jones’ milieu: Broadway standards including the songs of Stephen Sondheim, Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin, Rodgers and Hart, Harold Arlen, Ray Heindorf, Brian Yorkey and more. Dr. Bradley’s Fabulous Functional Narcissism is directed by KT Sullivan, artistic director of the Mabel Mercer Foundation, and an internationally renowned performer. Jones is supported by The Freudians, a quartet led by Music Director, Mike Pettry. "The Doctor is IN. IN-sync. IN-spiring. And just the teeniest bit IN-sane. Dr. Bradley Jones (yes, that shingle is real) has just the right amount of observation, rhythm and razzle-dazzle to charm anyone within earshot.” - Tulis McCall, The Front Row Center Photo: Michael Stever http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=348903 The Laurie Beechman Theatre The Laurie Beechman Theatre
