Scott's 7 PM concert includes an eclectic set of material including songs by Judy Garland, Michael Jackson, Bette Midler, Tina Turner 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) and Mike Lunoe.
Here's how the night of song and story is billed: "Tori Scott, Time Out New York's Top 10 Cabaret Artist of 2013, returns to Joe's Pub with her solo show My Own Worst Enemy, an evening of brassy songs and slurred autobiographical stories. This salute to a glittering array of poor life choices, bad luck and unread self-help books, follows Scott as she strives in every way to be a consummate lady and leaves her wondering if she actually still has a liver or not."
