Scott Raneri in EXTRA! EXTRA!
December 5, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST$20
Scott Raneri’s brand-new cabaret, EXTRA! EXTRA! continues at New York’s famed Triad Theater with an added and final performance on Sunday, December 5 at 3pm. Raneri, a Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Broadway World award nominee, will share the near hits and misses of both his professional and personal life as an “extra.” Whether rubbing elbows with Christian Slater or the marvelous Mrs. Maisel herself, Rachel Brosnahan, Raneri will keep audiences guessing how they know him through his exhaustive list of credits on stage and television, while awaiting his big break.
Directed by Mark Corpron with music direction by Fred Barton, EXTRA! EXTRA! features an eclectic selection of songs ranging from Broadway standards to the folk rock of Janis Ian. The original concept was the brainchild of Corpron. Together, he and Raneri delved into the depths of the grit it takes to keep going when someone’s star refuses to rise in art and life.
Raneri wrestled with the idea at first, saying, “I wanted the audience to connect to my personal life in addition to conveying how it feels to be so near and yet so far from my professional goals— hanging out in the background of popular shows with some of the biggest celebrities in the world within arm’s reach. In telling this story, I wanted to lean heavily into up-tempo and 11 o’clock numbers.”
The band will include Dr. David Ashton on woodwinds, Steve Picataggio on drums and music director Fred Barton on piano.
EXTRA! EXTRA! can be seen at Manhattan’s Triad Theater, 158 West 72nd Street, on Sunday, December 5th at 3:00 PM. Doors will open a half hour before the performance. The show can also be viewed via live stream on Metropolitan Zoom. For reservations visit ScottRaneri.com.
