Nancy And Beth, Starring Megan Mullally & Stephanie Hunt, Return To Feinstein's At The Nikko
Following a sold-out engagement in 2013, Feinstein's at the Nikko is thrilled to welcome the return of Nancy And Beth, starring Emmy Award-winning actress and musician Megan Mullally and musician, songwriter, actress, and writer Stephanie Hunt, for three performances only-Friday, May 3 (8 p.m.) and Saturday, May 4 (7 p.m. & 10 p.m.). Tickets range in price from $65-$105 and are available beginning Thursday, January 17 at 7 a.m. PST by calling 866-663-1063 or visiting www.ticketfly.com. Ticket prices are subject to change without notice.
Nancy And Beth-the punk/vaudeville heart-child of two friends, Megan Mullally and Stephanie Hunt-pick dope songs and then sing them while dancing and wearing matching costumes. They've been described by Noel Gallagher as "definitely not bigger than The Beatles."
With a combination of psychic twinship, childlike enthusiasm, rigorous preparation of songs, and zero preparation of what happens in between, Megan, Stephanie and the five dollfaces who back them up-Datri Beans (keyboards, vocals), Petra Haden (strings, vocals), Joe Berardi (drums), Andrew Pressman (bass, vocals), and Roy Williams (guitar, vocals)-have created a musical outfit that is celebratory, surprising, sweet, tuneful, eye-catching, thought-provoking, and amusing.
Nancy And Beth's self-titled debut is available on limited white vinyl on their website and on all streaming services. Their second LP will be out in 2020, and new music can be heard in the audiobook version of Mullally and Nick Offerman's New York Times Best Seller, "The Greatest Love Story Ever Told."
Hailed as "the most avant-garde show to play the Cafe Carlyle in recent memory," (TheaterMania) and "musical misfits" (NPR's "All Things Considered"), Nancy And Beth have also wormed their way into the Newport Folk Festival, the Grand Ole Opry, London's Royal Festival Hall, Solid Sound, and many, many other sweet venues in the US and abroad, leaving audiences with feelings of happiness and contentment not felt after seeing bands like Chick Corea or the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
In summation, bring yourself and your friends to see Nancy And Beth (yes, New York Times, the A is capitalized, please try to keep your shit together) and let them entertain you. Bigly. Like two funny fairies who can sing and dance.
