Named one of Time Out Magazine’s Top 10 Cabaret Performers, nightlife performer Tori Scott returns to Joe’s Pub November 13 for her 15th engagement at the downtown venue. Show time is 9:30 PM.
Co-written by Scott and collaborator Adam Hetrick, Seeing Double follows Scott through another year of disappointments, bar tabs, and regrets. The vocals are legit and the stories are, tragically, all true.
Expect songs by Madonna, David Bowie, Heart, and more.
The evening is directed by Seth Sklar-Heyn (Les Miserables, The Phantom of the Opera) and features musical direction by Jesse Kissel (The Visit, The Scottsboro Boys). The band comprises Jordan Jones-Reese on piano, Mark Verdino on bass, and Mike Lunoe on drums.
Scott is a New York-based singer and comedian. As a singer, she has performed her solo shows at Joe's Pub, 54 Below, the Laurie Beechman, the Metropolitan Room, Provincetown Art House, and every gay bar on the Eastern Seaboard.
