CHELSEA TABLE + STAGE will present the return of the "undie rock" sensation The Skivvies on Monday, April 17 at 7:00 PM. The hit Broadway duo Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley will perform covers and parodies along with special musical guests Andrew Keenan-Bolger (Broadway's Newsies and Tuck Everlasting) and Krysta Rodriguez (Broadway's Into the Woods and Spring Awakening, TV's "Halston" and "Smash"). Tickets are $25-60, in addition to a service charge and a two-item food and beverage minimum. A livestream option is available for $20. CHELSEA TABLE + STAGE is located at 152 West 26th Street.

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. Molina (Broadway's Rock of Ages, Sweeney Todd, Mary Zimmerman's Candide, Marry Me a Little) and Cearley (All Shook Up, Pageant, Buyer & Cellar) met in 2003. 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 undie-rock, comedy-pop duo continues to perform to sold-out audiences in New York and beyond. They have made appearances on NBC, and filmed pilots for Fox, A&E, and WE. The music video for their single "Hardbody Hoedown" was directed by Augusten Burroughs (Running with Scissors).

CHELSEA TABLE + STAGE, highlighting a diverse range of musical genres, is a welcome addition to the list of high-end venues on the New York performance scene, deftly balancing a glamourous interior, traditional hospitality, and top musical talent. The current lineup features a dazzling array from the worlds of pop, folk, country, soul, jazz, and much more. Providing a wide variety of upscale American menu items, with distinguished wine and bespoke cocktails, audiences will experience some of the best touring performers in the world, alongside local emerging artists. CHELSEA TABLE + STAGE melds the ambiance of a classic supper club with the acoustics of a serious listening room and a contemporary spin appealing to several generations of music lovers.

CHELSEA TABLE + STAGE opens the doors to hospitality, entertainment, and enjoyment every night, featuring state-of-the-art sound and lighting, a 10-seat in-theatre bar, lofted VIP mezzanine for private groups, and table seating for the perfect date night. The ever-changing menu and entertainment schedule means guests never have the same night twice. CHELSEA TABLE + STAGE is located at 152 West 26th Street (between Sixth and Seventh Avenues), downstairs inside the Hilton New York Fashion District. Purchase tickets at @chelseatableandstage
