13 Feb 2014
Nancy Anderson, Courtney Balan, Michael Campayno and Elizabeth Broadhurst join The Skivvies for a series of concerts at Pittsburgh's City Theatre beginning Feb. 13.
Actor-musicians Lauren Molina (Sweeney Todd, Marry Me a Little) and Nick Cearley (All Shook Up) are the duo behind The Skivvies, known for their acoustic performances of pop songs, wearing nothing but their underwear. Molina, Cearley and their guests play instruments ranging from the cello, ukulele, guitar and glockenspiel to the melodica.
The Skivvies perform Feb. 13-15 at 8 PM, with an additional late-night 10:30 PM show on Feb. 15.
The evenings include stripped-down musical appearances by Anderson (Kiss Me, Kate; Wonderful Town), Balan (Cry Baby, In My Life), Campayno (NBC's The Sound of Music Live!), Broadhurst (Mary Poppins), Hanna Shankman (Hair, Side Show), Hayley Nielsen, Joshua Elijah Reese and Bria Walker.
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.
