VIDEO: Lesli Margherita Joins The Skivvies For a Post-Show Set at SEX TIPS FOR STRAIGHT WOMEN FROM A GAY MAN
Broadway's favorite undie-wearing duo, The Skivvies - Lauren Molina (SWEENEY TODD, ROCK OF AGES) & Nick Cearley (PAGEANT, ALL SHOOK UP 1st Nat'l Tour) - have joined the cast of Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man, giving the first performance of their three week run on July 16th.
Molina plays Robyn (the "straight woman") and Cearley plays Dan (the "gay man"), with each performance through July 30th followed by a signature Skivvies performance featuring a special scantily clad guest star.
The guest star for their premiere performance was the outrageously funny Lesli Margherita, the Olivier Award-winner who won over Broadway with her zany antics in MATILDA and DAMES AT SEA.
Margherita can be caught at Birdland tonight, July 18th, and Monday, July 25th at 7PM in BROAD, her nod to the brassy, ballsy, bawdy broads who inspired her.
Now in its third smash year Off-Broadway, Matt Murphy's Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man, based on the best-selling book by Dan Anderson and Maggie Berman, takes the audience on a hilarious and wild ride where no topic is taboo and the insider 'tips' come straight from the source: a gay man. Directed by Tim Drucker, Sex Tips began performances on January 22, 2014 and opened on February 9, 2014. Sex Tips launched its wildly successful national tour last year with several sold out runs at performing arts centers in Des Moines, IA, Tampa, FL, and Buffalo, NY among others. For the 2016/2017 season, the touring company will set out for more than 18 weeks across several states including Colorado, Florida, Texas, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Arkansas.
Lesli Margherita's BROAD is an evening celebrating the controversial women of yesteryear. Women who knew how to serve it up and dish it out. Women who took no prisoners and gave no apologies. With heart, humor, and more than a dash of seduction, Margherita takes center stage delivering racy and rare gems from the 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s that landed many of the women who sang them in hot water...just the way they liked it.
Written by Margherita, the evening is directed by Lauren Bass, with musical direction & arrangements by Brett Ryback and produced by Jordan & Lauren Bass. For more information & tickets visit leslimargherita.com.
