Check out our interview on actor Laird Rehegnas' Entropy Therapy Podcast here to hear the full story of Salon!
Salon is a live, quasi-monthly variety show which features original material from actors, stand-ups, writers, and musicians across New York City. It was created in 2016 by Steven Russo & Justin Gabel–two longtime friends and artistic collaborators. Since it's inception, Salon has featured everything from improv-comedy, jazz, spoken word, and even opera–holding true to it's identity as a classic, cabaret-style variety show.
The premise of the show is simple: Take an awesome party with your most creative friends, add a stage, and workshop your freshest, newest piece. Throw in some family and friends, good food and good beer, and you got yourself one unique Sunday soirée.
Essentially, Salon is a safe space that finds the sweet spot between being a polished show, and a developing, artistic communal experience.
