with SETH RUDETSKY as pianist/host
Broadway @ The Art House
May 25 & 26 @ 7PM
BROADWAY AT THE ART HOUSE and Mark Cortale proudly present BETH MALONE for 2 shows only.
Beth was nominated for a 2015 Tony Award for her portrayal of “Alison Bechdel” in Fun Home. Both the show and her performance have been groundbreaking for the LBGTQ community and for how it entirely changed the way we talk about lesbians on stage. Malone most recently received rave reviews for her star turn as the titular character in the world premiere of a wholly re-imagined version of The Unsinkable Molly Brown, directed by Kathleen Marshall at THE MUNY this summer. She originated the role of June Carter Cash in Ring of Fire on Broadway, as well as the roles of Betty Jean in The Marvelous Wonderettes and Alison in Bingo off-Broadway.
On film, Malone can be seen in Taylor Hackford’s The Comedian, co-starring opposite Robert DeNiro, and Edie Falco. She recently appeared as the recurring character of Claudia Monarch (a surrogate Rachel Maddow) on CBS Braindead. Other television credits include the CBS hit series The Good Wife, Comedy Centrals Reno 911 and Wanda Does It, along with the Fox pilot Second Nature.
Seth Rudetsky is the afternoon host on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio’s “On Broadway” as well as the host of Seth Speaks on Sirius/XM Stars. As an author, he penned “My Awesome/Awful Popularity Plan” and the sequel “The Rise And Fall Of A Theater Geek” (Random House) as well as three volumes of “Seth’s Broadway Diary” featuring inside scoop and hilarious stories from all of the stars he’s worked with. He co-wrote and co-starred in “Disaster!” (NY TIMES critics pick”) which also premiered to rave reviews in London.
In June 2016, he and his husband, James Wesley, co-produced a recording of “What The World Needs Now” with stars like Idina Menzel, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Carole King, Audra McDonald which went to number one on iTunes and raised more than $100,000 for the Orlando shooting victims (and is still raising money. Buy it!). Seth and James have a foundation called Your Kids Our Kids that presented “Concert For America; a series around the country featuring stars like Barry Manilow, Stephanie Mills, Vanessa Williams, Tina Fey, Randy Rainbow and Audra MacDonald that raised money for 5 non-profits that have been working relentlessly since the 2016 presidential election. They also present Voices for The Voiceless, a yearly star-studded concert for You Gotta Believe which helps older foster children find families, even if they’ve aged out of the system.
