BAD for YOU!
The Web Series
The Cabaret Show
Our SUCCESSFUL "BAD FOR YOU!" live show (great songs about things we know perfectly well aren't good for us) was so much FUN,
the Food Of Love decided to showcase the agony, drama, and high-jinks of how we got "BAD FOR YOU!" up, with a web-series of six 3 to 4 minute episodes, in the tradition of Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney "B" movies putting on a show in Dad's barn. But this is MANHATTAN! It's complicated.
the Food of Love Trio
the cast of BAD for YOU!
Veteran NYC performers, Alix Elias, Richard Marshall, ad Woody Regan's cabaret show "BAD FOR YOU!" featured songs about things we know darn well are bad for us (smoking, drinking, high cholesterol foods, illicit sex, etc.), --which kill us, or/or make life worth living.
Despite getting off to a wobbly start, the show SUCCEEDED, helped by funding from our original Indiegogo campaign (THANK YOU, donors!).
We're moving forward with a reality web-series about getting the silly show on its feet.

Dear friends, followers, and well-wishers, please be part of our show by giving us donations for rehearsal studios, transportation, posters, copies, etc. etc. We'll record our songs in a studio (hire musicians). We need funds for marketing, photos, videos, costumes, make-up, props. We need to rent cameras, equipment, lights. Pay a crew. Pay for post production.
We're just small fry, but we have the same expenses as any film or video production. But we're thrifty and imaginative! We beg, borrow, steal. We're resourceful.
Please help us realize our goal, so we can bring "BAD FOR YOU!", the reality web-series, to your tiny screen, and share with you our creative adventures in the demi-monde of NYC Cabaret.
