Being a part of an audience that can conjure up an artiste like Marlene Dietrich and successfully re-create a 90 minute one-woman show is no easy task. Cindy Marinangel, however succeeds in pulling it off at the Triad, albeit for one performance but with many more scheduled.

Written by Willard Manus and directed by Judith Rose with Russell Daisey at the piano. Ms.Marinangel channels Ms.Dietrich with aplomb and even sings Lili Marlene and Falling in Love again, which will surely evoke a tear or two of nostalgia from people of a certain age, recalling "The Blue Angel" a film that Stands out from her Hollywood days of yesteryear.

The action takes place in her dressing room at Berlin's Tatania Palast Theater,1960. We see Dietrich being interviewed by a reporter, answering phone calls and yes,a song or two. However we are only witness to one person on stage, with
Marianangel transporting and hypnotizing us into a frenzy. The illusion remains throughout the piece despite Dietrich convincing us that she's holding court with someone - and she does - and it doesn't matter. It's Marlene we all came to see!

Stay tuned, Dietrich will be back soon to entertain us with songs and stories. Hopefully more songs, less stories.

Small theatre on the 2nd story over a restaurant. Saw Dozen Divas” and it was so fun. Great singing, funny, just great entertainment. 2 drink minimum. Average price for cocktail was $15. Not sure how much beer was. Tickets were inexpensive though. Worth it. Got photos with the performers after first come first served seating I’ll go back

Great experience!! I would highly recommend. The admission price was reasonable and the drink prices are what I would expect.

An intimate off-Off-Broadway theater experience well worth one's effort to find. Hint: look above the doorways around 158 W 72nd Street to see its "marquee" - easy to miss and walk by. But well worth the effort! We arrived with discounted tickets for the balcony but a smile and chatty banter got management to set us at the foot of the stage for what was to be the production's closing night - though this show's popularity had earned a month's extension by then.

Emulating a Capitol Steps type production, this musical skewers President Trump - the "Me" of the title - and his minions. Witty. Clever. Well-crafted. Exquisitely cast with 5 uber-talented performers. Superb. Thoroughly delightful. Mia Weinberger aces her savage satires of Melania, Ivanka and, yes, Kim Jong Un. It should go on-the-road or to another venue after its October 1 close at The Triad.

A two-drink (alcoholic and nonalcoholic) minimum is enforced for floor seating and, no shock here, the beverages are expensive (a shelf whiskey sour goes for $12). Factor this into your entertainment budget. Then again, this is NYC...

Our experience with "Me the People" reflects others' reviews for previous productions, so it appears The Triad holds itself to consistently high standards. We will definitely check out future runs at The Triad when Broadway or business calls us into NYC again.

Went to see Spamilton... lots of talent, very entertaining. Paid for premium seats but wound up sitting at an upper level, by choice, because premium seating was too crammed.

I loved the musical Spamilton. The parody's target were broader, taking on more of Broadway and Lin Manuel than I expected. Some extremely funny moments.

We love Broadway musicals and we love spoofs which do their homework. This musical is amazing and the voices are great. Homework signed sealed and delivered!! If you love Broadway, laughing, and quaint venues this is the musical for you. Location was a little tricky to find due to the construction on the street but do not give up for this show is worth it!! There is a two drink minimum so don't be surprised. They cast is small but mighty with many wonderful moments woven throughout the musical. A must see and no high priced tickets to keep you from viewing one of the best laughing moments uptown!!

We enjoyed this great little venue for a spoof on Hamilton - big Broadway, in general. Intimate setting with little tables and a friendly staff made the experience very pleasant. The show was very well done, entertaining and funny! It has a small, very talented cast who performed the entire show (about 90 minutes) with a great energy. Even not having seen Hamilton, we truly enjoyed the performance. Great little theatre and great show!

Yes! you read it correctly: Spamilton is NOT to be confused in any way, shape or form by Spamalot - the musical-comedy sensation by the Monty Python troupe seen on Broadway several season's ago, nor Hamilton, the current Broadway smash hit - although, just to be clear, this parody of Hamilton is much closer to American History than the UK send-up that was Spamalot. - rhyming with Camelot - but that's another review...hahaha

Confused? No need to be. I loved the show - part TV's SNL but totally fresh and clever. Like me, I have been unsuccessful up to now to see Hamilton, so this is the next best (and big) thing!

And to be completely clear: this comedic spoof of Hamilton is NOT by Lin-Manuel Miranda, but rather an amusing pastiche by Author and Director, Gerald Alessandrini, who succeeds in re-telling this Historical tale as a send-up and take-off the likes you'll never see anywhere else!

The ensemble cast of characters will bring laughter and tears of joy as the show unfolds. The night i was in the audience,
Christine Pedi and Tyler Milliron were added to this very talented cast.

Forbidden Broadway has the distinction of compiling every Broadway show imaginable into 90 minutes of hilarity and this rendition is no exception!

My last review indicated that the Turkish restaurant, Seven's is directly below The Triad and so I suggest why not make an evening out of it and dine & wine and see the show all under one roof and at one night!

You won't be disappointed!
