Tori Scott, who was named one of Time Out New York’s Top 10 Cabaret Artists for 2013, hits the stage at 7:30 PM for “an evening filled with slurred autobiographical stories, a crippling need for attention and a sad realization of her actual age.”

“Scott will take you on a shameless journey of self-discovery, denial, and lingering regret, all while belting songs written by other people.” The autobiographical show incorporates hits by David Bowie, Aretha Franklin, Edith Piaf, Queen, Judy Garland and more.

Young(ish) is co-written by Scott and her longtime collaborator and enabler Adam Hetrick, directed by Seth Sklar-Heyn and features musical direction by Jesse Kissel.

Scott is backed by Alexandra Eckhardt on bass and Dan Weiner on drums.

Scott is a New York-based singer and comedian. As a singer, Scott has performed her solo shows at Joe's Pub, 54 Below, the Laurie Beechman, the Metropolitan Room, and every gay bar on the Eastern Seaboard. As an actress, she was recently seen performing alongside Alice Ripley in a concert reading of a new musical The Girl with Polka Dot Eyes and performing opposite Linda Lavin, Leslie Uggams and Stephanie J. Block in the Symphony Space tribute to Sheldon Harnick and Fiddler on the Roof. On television, she's counted to 20 as a singing garbage woman on "Sesame Street" and dubbed the vocals of a singing hooker on HBO's "Cathouse: The Musical." Tori is a graduate of The Boston Conservatory.
