Jan. 11 - Jan. 30, 2022 

You asked, and we heard you! The wildly popular, sell-out team of Tony Braithwaite and Jen Childs is back to the Playhouse stage this month! Inspired by legendary comedy couples and Broadway musicals, this fresh NEW cabaret features hilarious songs and sketches from the best of the best – Comden and Green, Irving Berlin, Stiller and Meara, The Carol Burnett Show, Nichols and May, Burns and Allen and so many more! And of course, you won’t want to miss Tony and Jen’s laugh-out-loud, cruise ship lounge act, “T.B. and Jenny.”
Featuring Owen Robbins at the piano.

“Braithwaite and Childs are the king and queen of Philadelphia comedy.” -Philadelphia Theater Reviews
