Your teeth are dry because you haven’t been able to close your mouth
in such a long time, your jowls are quivering, and tears are streaming
from your eyes. Is this any way to watch a Broadway show? Well, if
the wild and wacky ball of energy known as MARIO CANTONE is on stage,
it is! Cantone is indeed in his element in LAUGH WHORE - he’ll do
anything to make you laugh, and whatever he does works. Whether he’s
performing “Rollin’ On A River” as Tina Turner, Cher and Kate Smith
in concert or presenting a Jim Morrison Christmas or simply revealing
his childhood in an Italian household, the laughs are non-stop.
Cantone is acerbic, sassy, and totally irreverent. He’s both
hysterical and hysterically funny and a damn good singer to boot.
LAUGH WHORE is a marvelous Christmas gift to yourself. Warning:
Take deep breaths during intermission because this is the only
opportunity you’ll get!
