Jesse Tyler Ferguson Sings LaChiusa and Finn at Joe's Pub June 13-July 4

Jesse Tyler Ferguson, the red-headed performer who plays Leaf Coneybear in the hit Broadway musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, will bring his solo show, Adios Pantalones!: The Music of William Finn and Michael John LaChiusa, back to Joe's Pub for three performances only—June 13, June 20 and July 4 at 9:30 PM.

The evening will be directed by Jason Eagen and will feature music direction by Vadim Feichtner. In it, Ferguson will pay homage to the two musical theatre luminaries, both of whom featured Ferguson in shows. As well as singing songs from LaChiusa's upcoming See What I Wanna See and Finn's current hit, Spelling Bee, Jesse will sing from their lesser-known shows including Little Fish (LaChiusa) and The Royal Family (Finn).

Ferguson appeared on Broadway in the Public Theater's revival of On the Town. In addition to The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (for which he received a Drama League Nomination and a Drama Desk Award), his other theatrical credits include Where Do We Live, The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told, Little Fish, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) and newyorkers 
as well as the City Center Encores! production of Hair. Ferguson's screen credits include Absolutely Fabulous, Sally Hemings: An American Scandal, Ordinary Sinner and Mercury in Retrograde.

LaChiusa is the composer-lyricist whose Broadway credits include The Wild Party, Marie Christine and Hello, Again. Shows that have been produced regionally include R Shomon (which has been renamed See What I Wanna See), Little Fish, The Highest Yellow and The Petrified Prince; his First Lady Suite received a revised staging at off-Broadway's Transport Group last year.

Finn's musicals A New Brain, March of the Falsettos and Falsettoland have all been produced off-Broadway at Playwright's Horizon, with the latter two consolidated into Broadway's Falsettos.

Joe's Pub is located at 425 Lafayette St.

Tickets, which are $25, can be ordered by calling (212) 239-6200 or by visiting www.telecharge.com.
