Produced by Barbara Busackino and Tandem Otter Productions, the show received a rave review from Ben Brantley in the New York Times and played to sold out houses for 6 months. The show has since toured to Los Angeles and Paris and spawned a “docufantasy” film of the same name which premiered at the TriBeCa Film Festival in 2010.
“Arias with a Twist: Deluxe,” a revamped and expanded version of the show returns to New York for a limited run at Abrons Arts Center from September 14 to October 16, 2011.
Arias’ relationship with Abrons began in October 2010 when “Joey Arias in Concert” marked Arias’ first concert appearances in New York in over a decade.
Presented by Earl Dax and music directed by Ben Allison, the shows filled the 300-seat Abrons theater to capacity at each performance prompting the addition of an added late night performance.
Based on the success of the show, Dax collaborated with Josh Wood who produced Arias in concert at New York’s legendary Town Hall on April 21, 2010.

The San Francisco based production premiered Off-Off-Broadway at the Grove Street Playhouse in 2000 starring Arias as Joan. Arias also starred in a 2001 revival of the play at the Chelsea Playhouse.
