With original songs too.Tommy Koenig has always combined the worlds of stand-up comedy, theater and rock and roll music in his one-man shows over the years. And now he's done it again with BABY BOOM BABY. People have said: What an amazing talent. He's like a combination of Jerry Lewis and George Carlin. The New York Times called him A Master of Caricature, and The L.A. Weekly called him Hilarious.Humor, Music, Romance, History, Message – this show has it all! A perfect mix of Comedy, Music and Theater.

Additional Notes:
As millions of people in our world today are being displaced from their homes and swept across tumultuous seas and often unwelcoming lands in their desperate need and desire for the safety and basic comforts of a home, immigrant theater has a crucial role in raising consciousness about these wrenching realities of our world. Domnica Radulescus play Exile Is My Home deals precisely with such realities from the perspective of female displaced travelers crossing a confusing and terrifying universe in a desperate search for safety, peace, a place they can call home. The plays poetic and tragic comic actions and language, the courage, intelligence and sass of the two protagonists and the multicolored array of good and evil characters they encounter along the way create an artistic landscape that is as moving as it is entertaining, as politically engaged it is shocking, as troubling as it is comforting in its utopian ending. Directed by Andreas RobertzAssistant Director Karen EilbacherFeaturing: Mario Golden, Vivienne Jurado, Nikaury Rodriguez, Noemi de La Puente*, David van Leesten, AB Lugo, and Mirandy Rodriguez.*Courtesy of AEASet Design by Jon Collins / Costume Design by Nicole Slaven Light Design by Joseph ThompsonMusic by Alexander Tanson, Art Work by Traci Mierzwa.
