One of our favorite shows, BariToned, will finally be making its West Coast debut with three performances in California. They will kick of their West Coast tour with a performance at Martinis Above Fourth in San Diego on April 6th, then at Rockwell's in Los Angeles on April 9th and finally at the Oasis nightclub in San Francisco on April 10th at 8 PM. It seems appropriate that they finally appear in California whose state animal is the Grizzly Bear.
The "I Hate Men" show includes the Broadway hits “Always True To You In My Fashion” by Cole Porter from Kiss Me Kate, “Bring On The Men” by Frank Wildhorn from Jekyll & Hyde, “Wash That Man” by Rodgers and Hammerstein from South Pacific, and “Big Spender” by Cy Coleman from Sweet Charity, all mashed up together to create songs about men and their proclivities, all delivered with some gender-bending fun.
The trios new tour also includes performances on the East Coast at Birdland in New York on April 19, and Avenel on April 24th, June 20th and June 21st.

Oklahoman Kyle Hines dubs himself a “Lumber Sexual.” Kyle specializes in playing deeper than the average athlete – funny in an awkward way, but still sort of sexy. He also enjoys fixing things in his apartment while listening to the soothing sounds of the great Barbra Streisand. Above all, Kyle loves nothing more than spending an entire day hanging out with his wife and three rescue dog-babies – Rudy, Peanut, and Sushi. Some of Kyle’s favorite roles include Adam/Lazarus in the NY Times Critics’ Pick and Drama Desk Award Winning Play, The Mysteries at the Flea Theatre, and Captain Grizzle Beard in the NY Times Critics’ Pick & Off-Broadway Alliance Award Winning musical The Pirate La Dee Da at the Atlantic Theatre Company. Most recently, Kyle played Jesus in the Infinity Theatre Company’s production of Godspell, but lately has been spending most of his days with his rescue Baritones, Joe and Edward.
