The Love Show is a theatrical dance company based in Brooklyn that combines cabaret, ballet, rock, comedy, and theater into creative performances all over the US and beyond. The Love Show has entertained all audiences, rocking stages from Lebowskifest to The Public's Shakespeare in The Park. The Love Show was commissioned to perform original choreography for clients including Banksy, Veuve Clicquot, Bacardi, and Vogue Magazine.
An active presence on the New York art scene, The Love Show was also awarded a week-long residency with Chashama, and recently closed the seventh season of their very popular holiday show, "Nutcracker: Rated R", which they also performed in Tokyo. The Love Show also has three other full-length productions, "Dance Mayhem: A Grindhouse Ballet", "SEVERED: The Tragic Loves of Frankenstein's Monster" (premiered to a sold-out house at Highline Ballroom), and "Boomstick Ballet: A Rock Opera tribute to Bruce Campbell" (set to reopen October 2016). The Love Show has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Post, and TONY, and The New York Times sent a reporter to exclusively follow the troupe's exploits on Bastille Day. The Love Show recently performed on a resort in Egypt for a live and electronic music festival, premiered a cameo piece commissioned by The Public Theater in their run of "Twelfth Night" at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park, and danced in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The Great Dubini
Master of the sleight-of-hand arts in action, the Great Dubini is regularly seen plying his trade at the crossroads of the world, right outside the Ripley's Believe It or Not! in Times Square. Familiar to Downtown audiences from his barnstorming appearances in both The Love Show and Sleep No More.
Jonathan Cunningham (Corn Mo) has toured America, Australia, New Zealand and Europe supporting the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, Wheatus, The Pontani Sisters, Nick Offerman, Ben Folds, They Might Be Giants and the Polyphonic Spree. He is Disco Mountain Man in a Bee Gees Metal Tribute called Tragedy. In the studio, he shared vocals with Ben Folds on Folds' cover of "Get Your Hands Off My Woman" for the Supersunnyspeedygraphic EP, joined the choir for the Polyphonic Spree's Together We're Heavy and played accordion on TMBG's "Particle Mo". He has written 7 albums for Corn Mo and his band .357 Lover, the latest being The Purchase of the North Pole. He co-wrote a musical about Grizzly Adams with Nick Jones for The Huntington Theatre in Boston, MA. He co-wrote "The Rainbow Song" with Nick Offerman of Parks and Rec for his American Ham show. He co-produced a ballet called SEVERED: The Tragic Loves of Frankenstein's Monster with The Love Show featuring the music from his album The Purchase of the North Pole. He's is currently working on the next album.
David F. Slone, Esq.
Born on the day that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated, David F. Slone, Esq. was born to save the world â€” a destiny from which he has been running his entire life. Raised on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, his was a life of relative ease an privilege. Mixing from an early age with debutantes and drag queens, he was exposed to all that life had to offer.
He was quick to channel these life experiences into the arts. He debuted on the New York theater scene in the early seventies in the title role of an all but forgotten musical, Off-White. However, shortly thereafter, he disappeared from the professional stage for nearly two decades.
While historians disagree as to the exact details, it seems that David spent the era from the mid-seventies to the mid-nineties focussing on his formal education. By the time he returned to the New York stage, he had earned Ivy League degrees in both philosophy and law. It has been theorized that he pursued the latter degree simply so that he might add the honorific of Esq. to his name. This theory is lent some credit by another example of his strange vanity: Some years ago, realizing that he would never be a rocket scientist or a brain surgeon, David became a member of Mensa, strictly for bragging rights. However, despite strong academic scholarship suggesting that non-Hassidic Williamsburg was overwhelmingly clean-shaven before his arrival one-decade ago, he refuses to accept credit for having introduced the beard to the hipster community of Brooklyn.
Upon his return to the city, he returned to the stage, working with such underground luminaries as Jonathan Ames, Julie Atlas Muz, Tom Murrin, and David Levine. Along with his mother, performer and lyricist Bobbie Horowitz, David founded, ran and taught for The Times Square Group, bringing arts education to underserved populations in the NYC school system. His edgy, remixed arrangements of standards and show tunes have been commissioned by the likes of notorious gender illusionist, Lady Clover Honey. He produces and emcees Angela Harriellâ€™s The Love Show and their alternative holiday perennial, Nutcracker: Rated R, traveling the country and touring Japan.
As a singer, actor, and variety performer, David has shared the stage with such stars of cabaret, circus, film, radio, and Broadway as F. Murray Abraham, Sarah Rice, Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick, Rob Base, Phoebe Legere, Constantine Maroulis, Tammy Grimes, Michael Musto, and Randy Jones.
