Featuring actor-musicians Lauren Molina (Sweeney Todd, Marry Me a Little) and Nick Cearley (All Shook Up), the Skivvies are known for their acoustic performances of pop songs, wearing nothing but their underwear. The duo and their guests play instruments ranging from the cello, ukulele, guitar and glockenspiel to the melodica.
In addition to Benanti (Gypsy), O'Malley (The Book of Mormon), Keenan-Bolger (Newsies) and James (Motown), the concert featured Alison Fraser (The Secret Garden), Adam Kantor (The Last Five Years), Wesley Taylor ("Smash") and Leslie McDonel (American Idiot).
They were joined by Shannon Ford (Next to Normal) on drums and Katrina Yaukey (War Horse, Billy Elliott) on saxophone/accordion.
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
