Bridget Everett will bring her new solo show, Rock Bottom, to Joe's Pub...at the Public Theater this fall. The Public's 2014-15 season opener will begin performances September 9 and run through October 11, with an official press opening on September 17. A sneak preview of the show will be offered at 9:30pm on July 9 and 10.
Rock Bottom was commissioned as part of Joe's Pub's 2013 New York Voices series. Written by Everett, along with Hairspray scribes Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, and Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz and Matt Ray, the show is her first major production since 2007's At Least It's Pink.
Rock Bottom is described as "the story of what happens when you're too passionate to give up, and too big to fail. In it, Everett barrels through life tip-toeing toward disaster, wine bottle by wine bottle and man by man. However, instead of succumbing to a chardonnay-induced stupor, Everett embraces a series of revelations that lead her and her voice of an angel to redemption." The set list will be made up of new songs and tunes Everett play's monthly with her band, The Tender Moments.
