Who's the only genuine veteran of the late '70s, New York Punk Rock scene currently starring on Broadway? That would be Annie Golden, who, before The Full Monty; before On the Town and her other Broadway and Off-Broadway credits; before starring in the film version of "Hair," was the lead singer of the Punk group The Shirts.
Golden returns to her roots on Aug. 13, when she plays a single show at Joe's Pub, the cabaret space off the Public Theatre in downtown Manhattan. The actress-singer has developed a story telling song-cycle with Peter Calandra, called Annie Golden's Velvet Prison..
Golden's other stage credits include La Terresse at Manhattan Theatre Club and Assassins as Playwrights Horizons (as Squeaky Fromme).
Tickets are $20. Joe's Pub is located at (212) 539-8645.
