The Mel and El Show – Show and Tell


Mel and El on 54th street is a real break from Broadway.

This is a funny innuendo riddled show for the X Generation able to laugh at itself.

While for everyone, this show hits the sweet spot for creative tribe
types as Mel and El have a Jersey Jewish background that is sure to
resonate with fellow tribes women.

What makes the show art is the tie in of music and the great 80s
culture. Yes its an XX club, decorated with The Boss’s albums, lavish in
lady pink centered on a visit to memories performed and memories woven
into a glorious set design: A design that underlies how a generation of
women were influenced through pop culture, music and the arts while
dreaming of, shall we say, “their serviceable areas.”

While El is happily hitched in reality, each performer sings and shares
their “club” memories that are cleverly sexual and, flat out hilarious.
A great part of the performance delves into these two real characters as
blossoming teens developing ads for a fictitious product sponsor:
“WOMAN”.

For those who need comparisons, this is an off Broadway show similar to
Jewtopia. Its niche success should resonate with a broad audience – if
niche can be broad.

When at the Ars Nova Theater, mention that you heard the ad for “WOMAN”
at The Art Quarterly. Tickets available online
