    Tony Tsendeas in TONY TSENDEAS IN THE POE SHOW
WHEN:  September 13, at 7:30 PM
Actor, writer, director, and adored BSA Theatre instructor, Tony Tsendeas, is Edgar Allan Poe and his maniacal characters in a deliciously terrifying ma-cabaret!
"Tony donned costume and makeup right before the viewers’ eyes to draw them closer into his web of Poe’s imagined world; and as if propelled by a fatal attraction, the audience hung on every word, jumped with every swing of an imagined ax or thrust of a knife that wasn’t there. A thrilling performance. —Maureen Mancini Amaturo, Event Chair, Rye Arts Center, Rye, NY

THE APPLE SCRUGGS: THE BEATLES UNPLUGGED
WHEN: September 15, at 8:00 PM

$10 cover.
With a dedication to accurately reproducing the music of The Beatles, The Apple Scruffs perform shows that allow audiences to re-discover the fab four's repertoire all over again. As a quintet, they are able to reproduce songs from The Beatles' later "Studio Years" such as "Strawberry Fields" "I Am the Walrus" and the entire Abbey Road album to name a few. No costumes, no wigs, just the music that changed the world.

Playing two sets of Beatle classics, covering every era of their incredibly varied songbook, The Apple Scruffs will perform their first Unplugged show at Germano's Cabaret. A charming intimate venue coupled with a tailored set of music that will make you feel that "maybe this is what it would have been like to sit in the studio with The Beatles."
