The show will be musically directed by Sonny Paladino, who will lead a four-piece band. The show is described in press notes as bringing "the acclaimed old-school vocalist back to the Public in a musical romp through a decade of life in New York City. Ms. Pope lends her signature retro vibe to material spanning 80 years of pop music, ranging from Tin Pan Alley to Amy Winehouse, as she traces her path from fresh-off-the-bus ingénue to self-styled urbanite and beyond."
Pope's previous cabaret appearances include The Diva-lution of Molly Pope (Joe's Pub, The Laurie Beechman Theater) and The Molly Pope Show (Joe's Pub). Current stage projects include the new musical Bromance: The Dudesical at Caroline's on Broadway. Pope's other stage credits include King Lear, Young Woman in Machinal, Twelfth Night: The Drinking Game and Swing for Victory.
Joe's Pub is located in the Public Theater at 425 Lafayette Street. For tickets ($20) and more information, visit joespub.com.
