The Luvely Rae’s One Night Stand: The Past
The Luvely Rae’s One Night Stand was created as a temporary event back in 2008. The Luvely Rae had received a phone call from a friend over a little East Village bar called Rififi.* The media had announced only weeks before that the bar would be shutting it’s doors that month, but here it was past the deadline of the venue’s supposed departure and they were still open. Rae always eager for a production challenged agreed to provide entertainment for one night only and began calling talent that had been waiting to tryout for her successful variety show Spice!
- A show no one had heard of
- Talent nobody knew
- At a bar that the world thought was closed
- For one night only!
Recipe for disaster? Not really. There were maybe 10 people in the audience, but the performers gave it their all. Rae agreed to bring back the show a week later, with the understanding that The Luvely Rae’s One Night Stand would offer a home to newer performers. It wasn’t long before Rae had invited more seasoned professionals to come in and mentor newer talent and that the doors were opened to out of town performers as a place to perform while making new friends. Since it’s humble beginnings The Luvely Rae’s One Night Standhas featured over 150 performers, many of which have gone on to produce their own shows. Some of NYC’s hottest talent enjoyed their very first shimmy on our stage.
