In 2006, Kyle Golemba met Adam White and asked him to team up on a one-off cabaret. Adam said he’d agree if Kyle could secure a date and venue. Within a week, the theatre was booked, and the pair got to work. Sixteen years, nine cabarets, three provinces, one album and a forever friendship later, they’re still at it with a brand-new show: Handsome, But Charmless. Titled after Kyle’s worst review, Handsome, But Charmless is full of great Broadway music, hilarious stories, and reflections on a life in Canadian theatre. Kyle and Adam have been called “an excellent team” (BroadwayWorld) with “spunk and style” (Toronto Star), who are “witty” and “charismatic” (The Carillon). Together, they make Handsome, But Charmless a performance to remember!
Originally from Regina, Saskatchewan, Kyle has performed on stages from Nanaimo, BC to Summerside, PEI, including seasons at the Stratford, Shaw, and Charlottetown festivals.
