The signature cocktail alone is enough to pique an interest in ‘Part of This Complete Breakfast.’ When a show’s boozy equivalent is a fruit loop infused gin martini, be prepared for some sweet, sweet sarcasm.
Jude Perl is a commercial jingle writer with album aspirations. Over the course of the show, she demonstrates that she exceptionally well qualified for her job. Her original songs are catchy send-ups of the music and entertainment industry. She pours her broken heart into a power ballad – comparing unrequired love to Italian desserts and zoo animals. She celebrates female pop-singers’ careers with hilarious and painfully spot-on observations. (The later number is performed in a dress made of boobs.) The musical comedy show is also infused with stand-up. Her take on the cliché advice of ‘follow your dreams’ will likely strike a chord with any starving artists in the audience.
The production is a fun addition to the Butterfly Club’s season. It’s a pleasure to listen to Perl’s voice, whether she is creating a three part harmony or passionately singing about STDs. After attending ‘Part of This Complete Breakfast’, one can only hope that Perl will continue to “follow her dreams” and provide more enjoyable, entertaining nights out in the city.
Jenny S is an event adventurer. When she’s not attending live shows, you can find her sampling the latest craft beer or sipping a creative cocktail.
