Rachel Potter, who is currently portraying the Mistress in the Broadway revival of Evita, plays the intimate stage of Joe's Pub May 13.

The 9:30 PM concert celebrates the release of Potter's debut country EP, "Live the Dream."

The evening also features a guest appearance by Tony-nominated actor Constantine Maroulis.

This independent release marks Potter's first collaboration with songwriter and producer Justin York. "It's got real guts," Potter said in a statement about the co-written EP. "We wanted to make a record that joined pop country music with a rock edge - think Carrie Underwood or Taylor Swift with a Paramore twist. It's a risk, but it's exciting."

Song titles on the new EP include "Live the Dream," "Lovestruck," "Just a Show," "Never You Mind," "September Song" and "Hold on to Me."

Concertgoers will receive a free copy of the recording.

Potter made her Broadway debut as Wednesday Addams in The Addams Family following a tour with Stephen Schwartz's hit musical, Wicked.

Joe's Pub is located within the Public Theater at 425 Lafayette. For ticket information visit Joespub.com
