06 Aug 2012
The Skivvies, comprising actors Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley, performed Stripped Down, an evening of covers and original songs, at Joe's Pub Aug. 5.
Will Swenson (Hair, Priscilla...), Susan Blackwell ([title of show]), Ashley Brown (Mary Poppins), Jessica Hendy (Aida, Cats, Amour), Mitchell Jarvis (Rock of Ages, Fiddler on the Roof) and Wesley Taylor (Rock of Ages, The Addams Family, "Smash") were among the special guests who joined the group in literally stripping down to their skivvies to perform "stripped down" covers of pop songs by such artists as Rihanna, Carole King, George Michael and Lil Jon.
Highlights of the quirky, musically-thrilling evening included Swenson delivering an earnest rendition of Lil Jon's "Get Low" and original Broadway Mary Poppins star Brown breaking out the character's trademark umbrella to perform the Rihanna hit of the same name.
