Laura Benanti, Wesley Taylor and More to Join The Skivvies at the Cutting Room, 11/19
THE SKIVVIES bring their unique blend of stripped-down, amped-up pop to The Cutting Room on Monday, November 19 at 7:30 PM. THE SKIVVIES are Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley, award-winning NYC singer/actor/musicians doing stripped down versions of eclectic covers and eccentric originals. Not only are the arrangements stripped down-cello, ukulele, glockenspiel, melodica-but the Skivvies and their special guests "from Broadway and beyond" literally strip down to their underwear to perform. Tickets are $18 and may be purchased at www.SpinCycleNYC.com, or by calling 212-352-3101. The Cutting Room is located at 44 East 32nd Street, just off of Park Avenue (directly off the 6 train at 33rd Street).
The November 19th performance marks the start of an ongoing residency at The Cutting Room, Chris Noth's new venue just off Park Avenue. The performance will feature special guests including Tony Award Winner Laura Benanti (Gypsy, In The Next Room, Women on the Verge), Wesley Taylor (Rock of Ages, The Addams Family), Emily Bergl (Southland, Desperate Housewives), Adam Kantor (Avenue Q, Rent), Mitchell Jarvis (Rock of Ages), and Joseph Morales (In The Heights & Bombay Dreams national tours). It will also serve as a lunch party for the debut of THE SKIVVIES' debut single "Hardbody Hoedown."
Molina (Marry Me a Little, Rock of Ages, Sweeney Todd) and Cearley (All Shook Up and the lauded one-man show And Then I Wrote a Song About It) are YouTube sensations with THE SKIVVIES, performing covers of artists including Robyn, Lana Del Rey, Carole King and Rihanna. They have been making quirky pop music together and playing across the country since 2004, with a live show that's fast and funny and packed with big voices, crazy harmonies and fun arrangements.
THE SKIVVIES will appear at The Cutting Room every first and third Monday of the month at 7:30pm, with different guest stars each week.
