Neue Galerie

Museum for German and Austrian Art, 1048 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10028

Naomi and Brent return to the Neue Galerie for their fourth season to reprise their sold-out program THE CHEATER'S ALMANAC. An electrifying cabaret about infidelity, love, lust, and crimes of passion, featuring such firm favorites as How could we be wrong and I'm Unlucky at Gambling by Cole Porter, Je ne t'aime pas by Kurt Weill, and You Can Have Him by Irving Berlin, the program swings in subject matter from the naughty to the murderous to the sublime.
