Alice Ripley, Lesli Margherita, and More Will Strip Down with the Skivvies for HALLOWEEN HOOTENANNY

THE GREEN ROOM 42 will welcome back the "undie rock" sensation THE SKIVVIES with a special "Halloween Hootenanny" on Wednesday, October 31 at 10:30 PM. The duo made up of Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley will welcome special guests from Broadway and beyond including Lesli Margherita, Alice Ripley, Ellyn Marie Marsh, Dan DeLuca, Rebecca Faulkenberry, Isaac Cole Powell, Vasthy Mompoint, Tamika Lawrence, Diana Huey and Conor Ryan. The show is an intimate one-night-only performance of song and comedy that showcases what Out Magazine calls "an unusual explosion of satire and sultry...part Weird Al parody and part sexy Burlesque." Come dressed up, celebrate Halloween, have a drink or six, and keep your clothes on!

Following this show, THE SKIVVIES will launch a national tour with shows in Pensacola, FL (Nov 1-2), Philadelphia, PA (Dec 6-8), Laguna, CA (Dec 10-11), San Diego, CA Dec 12), San Francisco, CA (Dec 13) and Palm Springs, CA (Dec 14). More details are at www.TheSkivviesNYC.com.

THE SKIVVIES are Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley, singer/actor/musicians performing stripped down arrangements of eclectic covers and eccentric originals. Not only is the music stripped down - cello, ukulele, glockenspiel, melodica - but the Skivvies literally strip down to their underwear to perform. Nominated for "Show of The Year" for the 2015 MAC Award, The Wall Street Journal calls them "smart, sophisticated...ingenious," and Out Magazine says, "The Skivvies have managed to carve out a niche that we never knew needed to exist: part Weird Al- parody and part sexy burlesque...and unusual explosion of satire and sultry." People Magazine named The Skivvies "The Most Playful Performers" in The Most Talked about Bodies of 2014 issue and Sports Illustrated named them "Favorite New Band." The New York Times calls them "a hot musical comedy duo specializing in unexpected arrangements, incongruous mashups, and of course, highly toned displays of skin."

Molina (Desperate Measures, Broadway's Rock of Ages, Sweeney Todd, Mary Zimmerman's Candide - Helen Hayes Award, Marry Me A Little) and Cearley (Broadway First National All Shook Up, Pageant, and on the OUT 100 list as one of the 'most compelling actors of 2014') met in 2003 performing in Theatreworks USA's national tour of the "Just So Stories." Quickly becoming best friends and musical collaborators, they began performing together in the city, with clothes on. The Skivvies were born in 2012, when they became YouTube sensations with their unique covers of artists like Robyn, Carole King and Rihanna. The videos led to live shows, and now this "musically thrilling", undie-rock, comedy-pop duo continues to perform to sold-out audiences in New York and beyond.

The Skivvies have performed at events such as Broadway Bares (raising money for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS), A Tribute to Angela Lansbury with Tyne Daly and Christine Ebersole, Broadway for Obama, Human Rights Campaign benefit, Theatre C. They have made appearances on NBC, and filmed pilots for Fox, A&E, and WE. They also have a single, "Hardbody Hoedown" and music video directed by Augusten Burroughs, bestselling author of Running With Scissors. Previous venues include their residency at 54 Below, 42 West, The Highline Ballroom, Roseland Ballroom, Joe's Pub, The Cutting Room, Rockwell Table & Stage in Los Angeles, The Smith Center in Las Vegas, Williamstown Theatre Festival, Huntington Theatre Company in Boston, City Theatre in Pittsburgh, Bay Street Theatre, Philadelphia's Kimmel Center, Key West's Red Barn Theatre, and The Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, PA where they also starred as Brad and Janet in The Rocky Horror Show directed by Hunter Foster.

THE SKIVVIES will perform the "Halloween Hootenanny" at The Green Room 42 (570 Tenth Avenue at 42nd Street, on the 4th Floor of Yotel) on Wednesday, October 31 at 10:30 PM. The cover charge ranges from $20 to $75. There is no food and drink minimum. For tickets, please visit www.TheGreenRoom42.com.
