The Skivvies Bring I TOUCH MY ELF to Feinstein's at the Nikko

This holiday season, the "musically thrilling," award-winning, undie-rock, comedy-pop duo The Skivvies-featuringLauren Molina and Nick Cearley-bring their holiday show, I Touch My Elf, to Feinstein's at the Nikko for one performance only - Thursday, December 13 at 8 p.m. In this outrageous evening, Molina and Cearley will perform stripped-down, mashed-up versions of holiday favorites and more. Not only is the music stripped-down-cello, ukulele, glockenspiel, melodica, and a surprising array of other zany instruments-but The Skivvies literally strip down to their underwear to perform. The Skivvies will be joined by special guest Broadway's Nick Adams (Priscilla, Queen of the Desert; La Cage Aux Folles; Wicked; A Chorus Line). Additional special guests will be announced at a later date. Tickets for The Skivvies range in price from$38.50-$75 and are available now by calling 866-663-1063 or

Nominated for "Show of the Year" for the 2015 MAC Award, the Wall Street Journalcalls them "smart, sophisticated. . . ingenious," while 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 . . . an 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 (Broadway's Rock of Ages, Sweeney Todd, Marry Me A Little, Mary Zimmerman's Candide-Helen Hayes Award) 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 undie-rock, comedy-pop duo continues to perform to sold-out audiences in New York and beyond.

Previous venues include their residency at Feinstein's/54 Below, 42 West, The Highline Ballroom, Roseland Ballroom, Joe's Pub, The Cutting Room, American Conservatory Theater's Strand Theater in San Francisco, 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, Pennsylvania. 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, and 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."

Theatrically, Molina and Cearley performed off-Broadway together in Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man. They were also cast as Brad and Janet in The Rocky Horror Show at The Bucks County Playhouse, directed by Hunter Foster. Molina is currently starring in the off-Broadway hit, Desperate Measures.
