The Skivvies Set for Series of Shows at City Theatre, 2/13-15
City Theatre has announced The Skivvies, a City Events special presentation featuring the musical duo's signature undie rock and comedy pop. The Skivvies will perform in City Theatre's Hamburg Studio for four shows, one weekend only, February 13-15, 2014.
Award-winning NYC singer-actors Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley don't just perform "stripped down" arrangements of distinctive mash-ups and originals; they literally strip down to their underwear to play cello, ukulele, glockenspiel, and melodica. The New York Post calls the show "a mash-up of all things sultry." Expect a hilarious evening of genre-hopping pop perfection with local special guests!
The Skivvies are Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley. Molina is an award-winning Broadway actress, musician, and singer-songwriter known for her roles in Broadway's Rock of Ages, Sweeney Todd, Mary Zimmerman's Candide, and the Drama League-nominated, two-person revival of Stephen Sondheim's Marry Me A Little. Cearley's credits include the first national tour of All Shook Up and the lauded one-man show ...And Then I Wrote a Song About It.
The Skivvies became YouTube sensations with their covers of artists including Robyn, Carole King, and Rihanna. The videos led to live shows, and now the duo performs to sold-out audiences in New York and beyond. Previous venues include 54 Below, The Highline Ballroom, Roseland Ballroom, Joe's Pub, The Cutting Room, Rockwell Table & Stage in Los Angeles, and The Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, PA.
The Skivvies have performed at events including Broadway Bares (a fundraiser for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS), A Tribute to Angela Landsbury with Tyne Daly and Christine Ebersole, Broadway for Obama, and Human Rights Campaign benefit, Theatre C. They have made appearances on NBC, and they filmed a pilot for the A&E network.
Their single "Hardbody Hoedown" has a music video directed by Augusten Burroughs, bestselling author of Running with Scissors.
Most recently, Nick and Lauren were cast as Brad and Janet in The Rocky Horror Show at Bucks County Playhouse, directed by Hunter Foster.
