STAGE TUBE: Bridget Everett and Patti LuPone Perform 'Me and Bobby McGee' at Joe's Pub
Last night at Joe's Pub, ROCK BOTTOM benefit star Bridget Everett invited the legendary Pattil LuPone on stage to perform Janis Joplin's 'Me and Bobby McGee.' Check out their rendition of the classic bluesy rock song below!
Bridget Everett's Rock Bottom is a brand new theatrical event commissioned as part of its New York Voices series. Written by Everett with Tony-winning writing duo Marc Shaiman & Scott Wittman and Adam Horovitz of the Beastie Boys, Rock Bottom is the entertainer's first major show since 2007's At Least It's Pink and the first since her critically-acclaimed tour with Comedy Central's Inside Amy Schumer. In Rock Bottom, Everett barrels through life tip-toeing toward disaster, wine bottle by wine bottle and man by man. Instead of succumbing to her chardonnay-induced stupor, Bridget embraces a series of revelations that lead this voice of an angel to redemption. Rock Bottom is what happens when you're too passionate to give up, and too big to fail. The performance will feature familiar songs from Everett's monthly sold-out showcase at Joe's Pub with her band The Tender Moments (Everett, Vocals; Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz, Bass; Carmine Covelli, Drums; Mike Jackson, Guitar; Matt Ray, Piano) as well as new songs written with Shaiman, Wittman and Horovitz.
New York Voices lets musicians explore different ways of storytelling, narrative and songwriting while connecting them to The Public Theater's artistic staff and a wider theater audience. The goal of the program is to work closely with each artist to develop new works that are ultimately toured nationally and internationally.
