CONFIRMED IN CONCERT: THE MUSIC AND LYRICS OF KAILEY MARSHALL, September 25 at 11:30PM:
Kailey Marshall's first full length piece, Confirmed, tells the tale of a rebellious, but misguided teen who is sent to Catholic school to change her ways. While there, she struggles to find love and faith, raising some hell while she's at it! With an infectious, pop-rock score, featuring the talents of Jeff Heimbrock (The Book of Mormon), Caitlin Kinnunen (Bridges of Madison County), Katie Ladner (Heathers), Ellyn Marie Marsh (Kinky Boots), Danny Quadrino (Newsies), Emily Rogers (Jasper in Deadland), Dan DeLuca (Newsies Tour) and Cortney Wolfson (Kinky Boots), Confirmed in Concert promises to be a night full of sin, redemption, and music that makes you feel the spirit! A self-described "Lena Dunham" of NYC musical theatre writers, Kailey Marshall's songs have been featured at 54 Below, Joe's Pub, the Highline Ballroom, and also at NYMF's The Music Box: An Evening of Female Composers. She recently won the Fresh Pens Contest in July 2014 with her song "Give It Up" from her musical Confirmed. Confirmed was also presented as the Pace New Musicals Lab in January 2014, with three sold out performances. $18 cover charge. $20 food & beverage minimum or two drinks.
THE SKIVVIES, September 26 at 11:30PM:
This "musically thrilling" undie-rock, comedy-pop duo don't just strip down their musical arrangements, they literally strip down to their underwear to perform their distinctive mashups and eccentric originals for cello and ukulele, with touches of glockenspiel, melodica, and a surprising array of under-used instruments. Award-winning singer-actors Lauren Molina (Marry Me a Little, Sweeney Todd, Rock of Ages) and Nick Cearley (Pageant, All Shook Up) became YouTube sensations as The Skivvies, with living room videos that displayed their powerful harmonies as well as their powerful abs. Those clips led to live shows that The Wall Street Journal called "smart, sophisticated...ingenious," and Out Magazine, "The Skivvies have managed to carve out a niche that we never knew needed to exist: part Weird Al- parody and part sexy burlesque...an unusual explosion of satire and sultry." They also have a single and music video directed by Augusten Burroughs, bestselling author of Running With Scissors. They will be joined by special guest stars who will strip down and rock out. Expect a hilarious evening of genre-hopping pop perfection. Guests: Lena Hall, Matt Doyle, Brandon Rubendall, Christopher Hanke, Clarke Thorell, Alyssa DiPalma, Dionne Figgins, Charlie Rosen and Natalie Joy Johnson. $35-45 cover charge. $25 food & beverage minimum.
