Joe's Pub Presents TORI SCOTT IS OVERSERVED
Fresh off of a successful summer tour throughout the east coast, Tori Scott returns to Joe's Pub with her new show, Tori Scott is Overserved, on Thursday, October 3rd at 9:30pm. Overserved is an evening of belting, boozing, and bad decisions.
As she crawls towards the end of her thirties with a martini in hand, Tori will take you on a slurred autobiographical adventure of her biggest regrets, her most recent shame spirals, and her desire to become a showbiz sell-out.
Overserved is written by Scott, directed by Seth Sklar-Heyn and features musical direction and arrangements by Jesse Kissel. Tickets are ($25) available online, via phone (212.967.7555) or in person at The Public's Box Office (425 Lafayette at Astor Place).
Scott has become known for her sold-out shows that take true stories from her life and turn them into musical celebrations of poor life choices, splicing together songs by an eclectic range of artists including Prince, Judy Garland, Cher and Irving Berlin to name a few. You're in for "an absolute thrill" (Huffington Post).
Curtis Wong of The Huffington Post describes Scott's irresistible shows as "A soul-baring singer and sharp comedian, Scott offers a musical set that bravely melds contemporary pop, standards and show tunes with woozy anecdotes that are witty, wry and engaging. Whether she's out-belting Beyoncé or reminiscing about a summer of Fire Island bar-hopping, Tori is a twinkling cabaret talent and a sassy storyteller."
Directed by Sklar-Heyn (Broadway: Associate Director, Miss Saigon, Les Miserables; Production Supervisor, The Phantom of the Opera) and music direction and arrangements by Kissel (Broadway: Chicago, The Visit, Leap of Faith, Conductor/Musical Director of Chicago National Tour, The Scottsboro Boys L.A. premiere) and will feature a 3 piece band.
