“This title can’t begin to do all Joseph Keckler‘s many talents justice. At Dixon Place this spring, Keckler’s delightful one-man show I am an Opera showed off his chops as a classically trained bass-baritone opera singer, rock balladeer, actor, pianist, multimedia artist, and storyteller. And he tackled a subject you won’t likely find at the Met anytime soon: a ‘shroom trip gone horribly wrong. Indeed, Keckler has a wonderfully absurd sense of humor, as anyone who’s seen his earlier works can attest to (in his show Cat Lady, he has a song that’s more or less a list of “good names” for felines, including Ambassador Baby, Velvet Elvis, and Bucket of Cuddle). His concerts at Joe’s Pub and other venues around town are also not to be missed. When he performs his cover of “I Put a Spell on You,” he literally does.”
