Nightlife singer Molly Pope, who knocked audiences out with her rendition of "Chicago" at Night of a Thousand Judys last June, will offer Molly Pope, Okay? Sept. 16 at the Duplex.



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.

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 frequently performs at Joe's Pub with Our Hit Parade. She 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.
