ABOUT THE SHOW
Eddie Lounge and the original Cosmos returned for the 10th Annual Capital Fringe Festival last summer with The Eddie Lounge Reunion Tour: The Lounge Awakens, nearly a decade after their top selling and critically acclaimed shows in the first two Fringes in 2006 and 2007. In this all-new show the martini-swigging, sequined-swinging crooner returned to sing your fun and funky favorites during the 10th Annual Capital Fringe Festival July 9 – 26, 2015.
Lucky lounge audiences learned that nearly a decade after retiring from lounge singing following his hit second fringe show, Eddie Lounge decided to return to the lounge stage. But in his long absence, his rival, Rico, had filled the lounge void Eddie had left. And Rico isn’t keen to step aside. As Eddie and the Cosmos serve up their comedic mix of contemporary lounge-for-all-ages, Rico and pop superstar Gina Tonic shake and stir things up. Will Eddie have to reenter retirement with a dash of bitters? Or will he once again be Lord of the Lounge?
Don’t miss the next show of the one-of-a-kind lounge team The Washington Post cheered has “Bona fide charm,” the Washington City Paper hailed as “Shameless good fun,” in a new version of the show that Variety trumpeted was “A hit.” DC Theatre Scene awarded the show its highest rating of Five Fringes, saying, “Eddie Lounge and his friends…spent an hour dazzling, singing, schmoozing and charming the socks out of the audience.” Most Eddie Lounge performances in the first two Fringes were sold-out, and the show was among the top-selling productions of those festivals..
