Nightlife singer Molly Pope, who regularly performs at Joe's Pub as part of Our Hit Parade,  returns to the Duplex Nov. 5 with her solo show Molly Pope, Okay? A portion of the evening's proceeds will help benefit those affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Pope recently appeared in Dan Fishback's The Material World and as Ruth Sherwood in the Gallery Players production of Wonderful Town last spring. She'll bring her throwback voice, which conjures girl singers like Rosemary Clooney and Judy Garland, to tunes ranging from Mozart to Madonna during the 9:30 PM concert.

Pope just announced that half of the proceeds from the evening will benefit Hurricane Sandy relief efforts and the Ali Forney Center, which was devastated by the storm. The Ali Forney Center dedicates its services to at-risk and homeless LGBT youth.

Tony Award nominee Kenny Mellman (Kiki and Herb) is the evening's musical director.



Molly Pope, Okay? promises Pope's "signature stamp of neo-retro verve. Playing it fast and loose, she beguiles the audience in an evening that brings to mind the heyday of mid-century New York City cabaret, spiked with a post-modern twist."

Pope has also performed at Feinstein's at Loews Regency, Australia's Adelaide Cabaret Festival (Australia), Ars Nova and the Laurie Beechman Theater.

There is a $10 cover and a two-drink minimum. For reservations visit TheDuplex.com. The Duplex is located at 61 Christopher Street.
