Tori Scott Returns to Joe's Pub with I'LL REGRET THIS TOMORROW Tonight
Just in time to break all her New Year's resolutions, belter and bad decision expert Tori Scott returns to Joe's Pub tonight, February 6th at 9:30 p.m. with her solo show Tori Scott: I'll Regret This Tomorrow, an evening of brassy songs and slurred autobiographical stories. This salute to a glittering array of poor life choices, past and present, will feature Scott's signature performances of hits by Dolly Parton, Michael Jackson, Florence and the Machine and more.
I'll Regret This Tomorrow is the 7th Joe's Pub show for Scott, who has also graced the stages of 54 Below, the Laurie Beechman, the Metropolitan Room, and every gay bar on the Eastern Seaboard; counted to 20 as a singing garbage woman on Sesame Street; and dubbed the vocals of a singing hooker on HBO's "Cathouse: The Musical." She strives every day in every way to be a consummate lady and sometimes wonders if she actually still has a liver or not.
I'll Regret This Tomorrow is co-written by Scott and her longtime collaborator Adam Hetrick (co-writer of Scott's previous shows at both Joe's Pub and 54 Below) directed by Seth Sklar-Heyn (associate director of Les Miserables, Evita and A Little Night Music on Broadway); and featuring musical direction by Jesse Kissel (Conductor/Musical Director of Chicago National Tour, Leap of Faith on Broadway, The Scottsboro Boys L.A. premiere). The band includes Kissel on piano, Mat Fieldes on bass (Matilda, Book of Mormon, Next to Normal), and Mike Lunoe on drums (Birdland, Gramercy Theater, Glasslands.)
Tori Scott: I'll Regret This Tomorrow will take place at 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 6th at Joe's Pub. For tickets ($15 in advance, $20 at the door, plus a $12 food and beverage minimum), visit joespub.com or call (212) 967-7555.
ABOUT JOE'S PUB AT THE PUBLIC Joe's Pub at The Public is one of New York City's most celebrated venues for emerging and established performance artists. Named for Public Theater founder Joe Papp, Joe's Pub debuted in 1998 and plays a vital role in The Public's mission of supporting young artists while providing established artists with an intimate space to perform and develop new work. Joe's Pub presents talent from all over the world as part of The Public's programming downtown at its Astor Place home, hosting approximately 800 shows and serving over 100,000 audience members annually. The diverse roster of programming featured at Joe's Pub includes top performers from Broadway, cabaret, dance, world, singer-songwriter, jazz, country and indie genres as well as New York Voices, its commissioning initiative, today's rising stars and GRAMMY Award winners. Joe's Pub also collaborates with other Public Theater programs to present events such as the Under the Radar Incoming series and the Public Forum lecture and debate series. The New York Times has praised Joe's Pub as at the "nexus" of "a downtown axis of clubs whose performers gleefully fuzz the boundaries between old and new, and between pop, rock, jazz, rhythm-and-blues, swing, country, world music and performance art." Its elegant neoclassical design, intimate atmosphere, and superior acoustics have consistently landed the venue on annual Best of New York lists. A top-to-bottom renovation was completed in 2011, leading to improved sightlines, expanded seating capacity and a new menu from acclaimed Chef Andrew Carmellini. www.joespub.com
