THE SCREENING ROOM: The Skivvies Los Angeles Concert, With Barrett Foa, Laura Benanti, Daisy Eagan and More (Video)
11 Mar 2013
Nick Cearley and Lauren Molina
The scantily-clad music duo The Skivvies made their Los Angeles debut March 4 with special guests including Tony Award winners Laura Benanti and Daisy Eagan.
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) and Eagan (The Secret Garden), the concert at L.A.'s Rockwell Table & Stage featured Tony nominee Robin de Jesus (In the Heights, La Cage), Leslie McDonel (American Idiot, Hairspray), Lisa Datz (The Full Monty, Titanic), Barrett Foa (Avenue Q), Kate Morgan Chadwick (Grease), Joseph Morales (In the Heights) and Bradley Sattler on drums.
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.
