No Thrill From Champagne is a champagne-sprinkled evening of Cole Porter, Nöel Coward, and Marlene Dietrich-inspired delinquency at the hands of two of Downtown NYC’s favorite post-ingenues. Musically directed by Tracy Stark, No Thrill From Champagne summons a neo-retro glamour, juxtaposing yesteryear with the here-and-now, through idiosyncratic arrangements and razor wit.
