TOXIC AUDIO TO HEADLINE BRIGHT NIGHT

Music and Comedy Group Brings its Award-Winning Show to Providence

PROVIDENCE, RI, December 1, 2004 – Bright Night Providence announced today that it has secured Toxic Audio to be the headlining act for its annual New Years Eve festival. The group will perform three shows, at 6, 8, and 10 p.m. at the Providence Performing Arts Center.

"This is a real coup for Providence," said Adam Gertsacov, director of Bright Night Providence. "Toxic Audio is a fantastic, family friendly show and highly entertaining. They were an award-winning hit Off Broadway, and now, through special arrangement with their manager Castle Talent Inc, we are able to bring the show to Providence audiences for just $10. And you get to see over 40 other great shows too!"

Rated Number One by a recent WALL STREET JOURNAL/ZAGAT THEATER survey, Toxic Audio has been showcasing their unique vocal, comedic and improvisational skills at the John Houseman Theater since April. By May, the show had won a Drama Desk Award for "Outstanding Unique Theatrical Experience." The five vocalists of Toxic Audio use no instruments but the human voice to create a rich musical experience, performing contemporary pop songs, timeless classics, jazz-scat and original compositions. More information about Toxic Audio is available at http://www.toxicaudio.com

Tickets to Bright Night, which includes admission to see Toxic Audio and over 40 other performances at venues throughout Providence, are $10. Family four packs will be sold for $35.

Tickets will be available in early December at the following locations:
• All Bank RI locations
• Whole Foods Markets ($9 ticket with donation of a can of food)
• The Cash Place (at the Arcade)
• Providence Performing Arts Center (December 31 only)
• Online through http://www.arttixri.com or by phone at 401-621-6123.
• For other sale locations, visit our website: http://www.brightnight.org

About Bright Night

Bright Night was founded in 2003 after Providence’s long-running New Year’s Eve festival, First Night, was cancelled. Organized in less than three months, the event drew over 12,000 people to downtown Providence, making Bright Night the largest New Year’s Eve party in the state. The festival features local artists and performers at venues throughout downtown Providence, and provides a fun, vibrant atmosphere for the people of Rhode Island.
The festival’s director, Adam Gertsacov, is an actor, director, and clown based in Providence, RI. He wears many hats, including that of a flea circus impresario, a local author, the esteemed hat of the Clown Laureate of Greenbelt, Maryland, and many others. He became the Festival director of Bright Night Providence last year, when a group of local artists (himself included) didn't want to see the city go dark on New Year's Eve.
