The 7 PM concert, billed What You Find in a Bottle, promises original folk songs by Kennedy. The actress will be backed by musicians Rick Fox, Kevin Ramessar and Jaz Sealey, who also appear in Superstar, as well as musician Michele Fox.
The concert will also include appearances by Superstar leading men Paul Nolan, who plays Jesus, and Josh Young, who earned a 2012 Tony Award nomination for playing Judas.
Kennedy originated the role of Mary Magdalene in the Broadway revival of Superstar, which began life at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival in Ontario last summer.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
