R.E.D. Hat Fight Club, a musical parody concert with Broadway performers on Mother’s Day
May 14 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM$19 – $79
Just in time for Mother’s Day, The Green Room 42 presents the world premiere concert of R.E.D. Hat Fight Club, with Broadway performers in an utterly ridiculous and overtly queer musical parody written by American Theatre Wing’s Jonathan Larson Grant and MAC Award-winning Joel B. New (Tempting Mr. Lincoln; Undertaking Christmas). Katharine Pettit directs a cast of six, including Renee Claire Bergeron (Nat. Tour: Whistle Down the Wind), Tari Kelly (B’way: Mr. Saturday Night, Groundhog Day, Something Rotten!, Anything Goes, The Boy From Oz), Wendy Makkena (Film: Sister Act movies; B’way: Lend Me a Tenor, Pygmalion, Side Man), Charles Sanchez (Web Series: Merce!), Dawn L. Troupe (B’way: 1776), and Jill Melanie Wirth (TV-Film: The Normal Heart – HBO). Gillian Berkowitz is music director. One performance will be staged on Mother’s Day, May 14, 2023, at 7:00 p.m. EST at The Green Room 42, 570 Tenth Avenue in New York City, and the concert will also be livestreamed.
After getting fired on her fiftieth birthday, a plucky milliner falls in love with a mysterious stranger and starts an underground fight club. But when it all inevitably spirals out of control, she must get even pluckier to put a stop to the mayhem and save the world before it’s too late. Starring some of the funniest leading ladies from Broadway and beyond, R.E.D. Hat Fight Club is the perfect gift this Mother’s Day: a knock-out musical parody celebrating the joys of aging and sisterhood!
“R.E.D. Hat Fight Club is a love letter to all the amazing women in the world who’ve taught us it’s never too late to make lifelong friends, learn something about yourself, or be a fabulous queen,” said Joel B. New. “It’s the perfect Mother’s Day gift for moms, dads, and their adult kids; the LGBTQ+ community; cabaret, comedy, and new musical theatre enthusiasts; and the Rebellious Empowered Divas in all of us.”
