The Five Minute Follies Posts

Rockabilly Singer Kathia Jane pays tribute to the King at the next Five Minute Follies… plus more updates!

Kathia Jane

We’ve got another slate of updates to the bill for the next Five Minute Follies, Friday, January 14th, 2011 in Philadelphia, PA.

Topping the list is Philly’s own Queen of Rockabilly, Kathia Jane, who will be singing a pair of Elvis numbers as a birthday tribute to the King (Elvis Aaron Presley was born to Vernon and Gladys Presley in a two-room house in Tupelo, Mississippi, on January 8, 1935).

This Friday will also see the return of friend of the Follies Crystal Why, who served as Co-Producer last year and presented a 2-part radio play under the banner of Nebulous Intent. This year she sneaks in as part of Evil Eye Arts, performing along with Pete Heleva and Leyla Eraslan in a skit entitled “Something is Something”.

Lastly but by no means leastly, we have the debut of scenes from a new play written and directed by Nicolle Pasquel Blackmon, “Dimensions of His Love”. Nicolle is a multi-talented actor, model and singer/songwriter who has chosen the Five Minute Follies as the place to debut her first stage play. Thank you, Nicolle!

See y’all at the Five Minute Follies on Friday…

Performer Updates for the next Five Minute Follies on January 14th, 2011 in Philadelphia

Anthony Salazar

Here are some updates on the bill for the next Five Minute Follies, scheduled for Friday, January 14th, 2011 at the Rotunda in Philadelphia:

New acts include Comedy Magician/Illusionist Anthony Salazar, Poet/Actor and author of “Tears of a Ghetto Child” John Frisby, Hoop Dancer Sarah Maccarelli, and the extremely talented vocal group Kneehigh Spunk.

We also have a couple of changes to the lineup of acts. Unfortunately, Belly Dancer Fatima Bassmah will not be able to join us for the January 14th, 2011 Follies. She has been given an opportunity to visit Egypt and we wish her all the best. Look for her return at a future Follies!

Also, vintage rock and roll band Crazy Man Crazy will not be able to play at the Follies. They are still seeking a new guitarist. Crazy Man Crazy lead singer Michael Subvert will of course still be emcee-ing the Follies and performing.

Here’s wishing you all a Happy Holiday and we’ll see you in January for the Follies!
