Next week, Stage 72 is hosting an evening with Susie Essman and Mario Cantone. It will be an over-the-top laugh riot. Most people know Essman from her foul-mouthed turn on Curb Your Enthusiasm; in fact, people often come up to her and ask her to swear at them the way she does on the show. Cantone, despite an illustrious theater career, is best known to audiences as Charlotte’s best friend on Sex and the City.
Essman is a quite funny comic and actress. I remember seeing her in the Vagina Monologues in 2000. She starred for a couple of weeks opposite Robin Givens and Donna Hanover. Susie had the audience in the palm of her hand from the minute the curtain went up. She was hilarious and heartbreaking.
Likewise, Cantone has wowed Broadway audiences and is a hit with the popular series Celebrity Autobiography where celebrities read from other celebrities’ autobiographies. The narcissism and navel gazing provide big laughs.
November 20th, check out Susie Essman and Mario Cantone together.
