Collaborators Christopher Pazdernik and Aaron Benham are preparing to pay "loving tribute to their two favorite musical theater icons" in a new show, "Carol & Patti: Together Again for the First Time," running Feb. 16 & 17 at Davenport's Piano Bar & Cabaret, 1383 N. Milwaukee Avenue.
The show's premise goes like this: "What would happen if Carol Channing and Patti LuPone were double-booked with their one-woman shows in the cabaret space at Davenport's?" The co-written show will contain real-life and imagined stories from the two divas' lives in show business, punctuated by songs they made famous, as well as by songs they've never sung before. Pazdernik will play Lupone, with Benham (who also serves as pianist) as Channing.
Showtimes are Sat. at 8 p.m. and Sun. at 7 p.m. For tickets ($9 plus a 2-drink minimum) call (773) 278-1830 or visit www.davenportspianobar.com.
