A different diva center stage every night.RYAN RAFTERY IS THE MOST POWERFUL WOMAN IN FASHION - THE ANNA WINTOUR MUSICALTuesdays, February 27, March 5, & March 12She has sat at the top of a $300 billion industry for twenty-six years. Her power and influence cannot be denied. But when she places Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on the cover of her magazine, the backlash is harsh and for the first time, her credibility is called into question. Through popular music and an astounding measure of creative license, “one-man musical juggernaut” (NY Daily News) Ryan Raftery returns to Joe's Pub to tell the story of a fateful day in the life of the most powerful woman in fashion.THE RISE AND FALL (AND RISE) OF MARTHA STEWARTWednesdays, February 28, March 6, & March 13 "The Rise and Fall (and Rise) of Martha Stewart" tells the fascinating story of the woman who changed the way we live our lives by daring us to try harder. From her humble beginnings in Nutley, New Jersey to her empire-building years in Westport, Connecticut, to her highly-publicized stint in federal prison, this is a chronicle of epically blind ambition set to the music of artists as varied as Beyonce, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Adele and Metallica.MOTHER OF THE YEAR - THE KRIS JENNER MUSICALThursdays, February 29, March 7, & March 14Mother of the Year finds Kris Jenner desperate for more kids to schill, so she travels to Laos for an experimental fertility treatment. Something goes wrong and she’s afflicted with temporary amnesia and is forced to stay in Laos to be re-educated about the role she’s played in creating “The Kardashians” as we know them. Then, she finds out that the experiment actually worked and she’s pregnant at 67 with a girl! However, now that she has new clarity on her parenting choices, she considers whether or not she wants to continue the pregnancy. But UH OH! Roe v Wade has been overturned during her stay abroad, which galvanizes the "New Kris" into using her family’s 1.2 billion followers to do something good for women everywhere and help get the law reinstated. And it’s a musical!!!
