Blackout at Bay Street is a late night immersive cabaret.
June 26, 2014 - Sag Harbor, NY - Bay Street Theater is pleased to announce BLACKOUT at Bay Street, a late night immersive cabaret. Doors will open immediately after the Mainstage show, at approximately 10:30 pm, with the cabaret performances beginning at 11 pm. The first weekend this summer is Friday and Saturday, August 8 and 9 with THE SKIVVIES. The second weekend this summer is Friday and Saturday, August 22 and 23 with THE BAY STREET MUSICAL CABARET. BLACKOUT is complimentary if you are attending My Life Is A Musical on these evenings. A $15 cover charge will apply to all walk-ins.
BLACKOUT at Bay Street is a new performance event launching this summer offering cutting edge performances in the Bay Street lobby that will be transformed into an immersive cabaret. The audience can sip specialty cocktails while they watch performances that happen all around them. Bay Street will be the place to be for after-hours entertainment in Sag Harbor.
THE SKIVVIES, a hot musical comedy duo featuring stripped down arrangements and stripped off clothes, were recently named “Most Playful Performers” in People Magazine’s The Most Talked about Bodies of 2014 issue. THE SKIVVIES are Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley, award-winning NYC 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. The Wall Street Journal calls them “smart, sophisticated…ingenious,” and 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…and unusual explosion of satire and sultry.” 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, Mary Zimmerman's Candide - Helen Hayes Award, Marry Me A Little) and Cearley (Broadway First National All Shook Up and the lauded one-man show ...And Then I Wrote a Song About It- NJ Star Ledger Award for Best Leading Actor in a Musical) became YouTube sensations with their Skivvies covers of artists like Robyn, Carole King and Rihanna. The videos led to live shows, and now this “musically thrilling”, undie-rock, comedy-pop duo continues to perform to sold-out audiences in New York and beyond. Previous venues include their residency at 54 Below, The Highline Ballroom, Roseland Ballroom, Joe's Pub, The Cutting Room, Rockwell Table & Stage in Los Angeles, Williamstown Theatre Festival, and The Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, PA.
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, Human Rights Campaign benefit, Theatre C. They have made appearances on NBC, and filmed a pilot for the A&E network as well as Fox. They also have a single, "Hardbody Hoedown" and music video directed by Augusten Burroughs, bestselling author of Running With Scissors. Most recently, Nick and Lauren starred as Brad and Janet in The Rocky Horror Show at Bucks County Playhouse, directed by Hunter Foster.
THE BAY STREET MUSICAL CABARET is a very funny and personal cabaret featuring performers from My Life is a Musical singing their own musical theater and rock songs.
