Will Swenson, Wesley Taylor, Ashley Brown and More Set for THE SKIVVIES at Joe's Pub, 8/5
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 literally strip down to their underwear to perform.
Molina (Broadway's Rock of Ages, Sweeney Todd, Mary Zimmerman's Candide) and Cearley (first national All Shook Up and the lauded one-man show And Then I Wrote a Song About It) are YouTube sensations with their Skivvies covers of artists like 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.
On Sunday, August 5, the Skivvies will be at Joe’s Pub at 7:30 with the following semi-clothed, special guest lineup:
Will Swenson (Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, Hair - Tony nominee, Rock of Ages)
Mitchell Jarvis (Rock of Ages, Fiddler on the Roof)
Wesley Taylor (Smash, The Addams Family, Rock of Ages)
Ashley Brown (Mary Poppins)
Susan Blackwell ([title of show])
Jessica Hendy (Aida, Cats, Amour)
