The line-up for the one-night only April 9 concert features Tony Award winner Patti LuPone, comedian and Emmy nominee Billy Eichner and the Grammy, Emmy and Tony-winning composer Marc Shaiman.

Directed by Scott Wittman, the show is billed as "an irreverent celebration of alt-cabaret's high priestess and Ars Nova all star, Bridget Everett."

The full line-up will feature an array of talented comedians, drag queens and entertainers including Jim Andralis, DJ Jonjon Battles, Justin Vivian Bond, John Early, Cole Escola, Dan Finnerty, Murray Hill, Champagne Jerry, DJ Sammy Jo, Larry Krone, Erin Markey, Molly Pope, Sweetie, The Tender Moments (Matt Ray, Mike Jackson, Carmine Covelli and Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz), Chris Tyler and Varsity Interpretive Dance Squad (VIDS).

Everett began performing with Ars Nova over a decade ago. The Off-Broadway theatre's artistic director Jason Eagan, has said in an earlier press statement that from the moment he saw her, he was "enamored by her incredible voice and even more incredible ability to physically touch everyone in the bar in inappropriate places.”

Critics lavished praise on Everett's recent show, Rock Bottom, which played two engagements at the Public Theater.

Her film and television credits include "Inside Amy Schumer," "Two Broke Girls," "Sex and the City" and the upcoming Judd Apatow-produced film "Trainwreck."

Proceeds from the concert will benefit Ars Nova. Stage 48 is located at 605 West 48th St. Tickets are available at arsnovanyc.com or by calling (212) 489-9800.
