Raunchy Little Musical -- Belle Barth is Back!

Book by Joanne Koch, Music by Ilya Levinson with Lyrics by Owen Kalt

 

"I talk dirty in a cute way!" --- Belle Barth

Breaking the glass ceiling for Amy Schumer, Joan Rivers and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Belle Barth was the original irreverent female comic, Queen of the Borscht Belt, deflating anyone who dared take sex too seriously. Raunchy Little Musical -- Belle Barth is Back, is a 90-minute hilarious and heartfelt show that chronicles the launch of the 50's Queen of Crass. It is an evening with this pioneer of edgy comedy anchored by an original Grammy award-winner score and plenty of her jokes and songs that topped the charts of the "Adults Only" record section...the "party records" your parents played when you were sent to bed. Inspired by her Jewish comedian father, Belle, a classically trained pianist, defied the odds (and her mother's wishes for a career at Carnegie Hall). She rose to the top of a very limited genre of performers playing to packed clubs worldwide in an era when "women ain't comics" culminating in a sold-out appearance at Carnegie Hall...her greatest success and yet her demise.

Original songs by Grammy-nominated composer Ilya Levinson with lyrics by Owen Kalt, the book of Raunchy Little Musical was penned by Joanne Koch, author of the Off-Broadway hit Sophie, Totie & Belle.. Nationally known actor/singer/comedienne, Sara DelBeato belts the "ditties of the titties" and grabs Belle's character by...well, you know!
