Created by Everett along with Hairspray Tony Award winners Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, as well as Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz and Matt Ray, the show was greeted with critical praise.

Rock Bottom will return Jan. 6-Feb. 20, 2015, for an 18-performance engagement at Joe's Pub.

The piece was originally commissioned as part of the Joe’s Pub 2013 New York Voices series.

The original cast also featured Cole Escola, Celisse Henderson and Chelsea Packard. Returning cast members have not been set for the 2015 engagement.

According to the Public, "Rock Bottom is the story of what happens when you’re too passionate to give up, and too big to fail. In it, Everett barrels through life tip-toeing toward disaster, wine bottle by wine bottle and man by man. However, instead of succumbing to a chardonnay-induced stupor, Everett embraces a series of revelations that lead her and her voice of an angel to redemption. It features new original songs written with Shaiman, Wittman, Ray and Horovitz, as well as familiar favorites heard in Everett’s monthly sold-out showcase with her band The Tender Moments at Joe's Pub."

Everett, who appears at Joe's Pub monthly, has also appeared in At Least It's Pink, Jukebox Jackie, "Sex and the City," "Two Broke Girls," "Inside Amy Schumer," and as a special guest for Patti LuPone's Carnegie Hall concert last fall.

Phone (212) 967-7555 or visit publictheater.org. There is no food or drink minimum for Rock Bottom at Joe's Pub.
