BREAKING NEWS - NYC: UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT'S JASON KRAVITS AT THE DUPLEX
Actor/ writer /musical improviser Jason Kravits brings his improvised cabaret show "OFF the TOP" back to THE DUPLEX CABARET THEATRE (61 Christopher Street, NYC - 212-255-5438) on Friday, May 13th at 7:00 pm. The entire cabaret show is made up on the spot - perhaps you've seen him on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Madam Secretary. In his musical high-wire act, Jason, assisted by a fearless and agile band, spontaneously creates a character, a life story and an entire evening of original songs, all based on audience suggestions. Showstoppers, medleys, character songs, trifles, segues, backstories - Jason makes it all up in real time, off the top of his nimble brain to the amazement of his audience. Jason began improvising cabaret shows a little over a year ago, with a first performance at FEINSTEIN'S/54 Below. He draws on 30 years of experience on stage and screen including Broadway (The Drowsy Chaperone, Sly Fox and Relatively Speaking) and hundreds of TV appearances including recurring roles on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Madam Secretary, Smash, The Michael J. Fox Show, Royal Pains, Dallas and a long run on The Practice, as well as memorable appearances on Blindspot, The Blacklist, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Hot in Cleveland, Married, Masters of Sex, Raising Hope, 30 Rock, The Good Wife, Gilmore Girls and Everybody Loves Raymond. His film credits include Chinese Puzzle, The Stepford Wives, Sweet November, Morning Glory, and What Just Happened. As a writer, Jason penned the 10-minute play, Green Eggs and Hamlet, the holiday stories, The Kvetch and A Christmoose Story, as well as the acclaimed web-series Lords of the Playground. In 1999, his two-man sketch show, An Evening with Kravits and Jones, won the Jury Award at the U.S. Comedy Festival in Aspen. He is a founding member of The Rumble in the Red Room writing collective, as well as the improv troupe, Erasable, Inc. There is a $20 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.
