Scott's 7:30 PM concert includes an eclectic set of material including songs by Florence and the Machine, Pink, Cher, Irving Berlin and more. The evening is created by Scott and her longtime collaborator, Playbill.com editor in chief Adam Hetrick.
Phantom of the Opera and Les Misérables associate director Seth Sklar-Heyn directs the show that has musical direction and arrangements by Jesse Kissel (The Scottsboro Boys, The Visit, Leap of Faith). Scott is backed by a three-piece band, which includes Kissel, Mat Fieldes (Matilda The Musical) on bass and Mike Lunoe on drums.
Here's how the night of song and story is billed: "After a summer of black outs and bad decisions, Time Out New York's Top 10 Cabaret Artist of 2013, returns to Joe’s Pub on Sept. 16 at 7:30 PM with her new show Tori Scott: Drunk at Joe's Pub to share her slurred words of wisdom and celebrate her poor life choices. While the show may be new, Tori's drinking problem is still the same. This salute to running away from your problems will feature hit songs by Florence and the Machine, Pink, Cher, Irving Berlin and more."
Scott has also appeared in the Ars Nova presentation of the new musical Taking Step Three13 and has also been a performer at Justin Sayre's The Meeting*. She is a graduate of the Boston Conservatory.
