Ars Nova has announced the lineup set to perform at the one-night-only blowout concert Bridget Everett Gets F*cked by Ars Nova on Thursday, April 9, at Stage 48.

Directed by Scott Wittman (Hairspray, Rock Bottom), the concert will feature tributes, roasts, and send-up performances from Grammy and Tony Award winner Patti LuPone (Gypsy) and actor, comedian, and Emmy nominee Billy Eichner (Billy on the Street), in addition to Everett herself.

There will also be performances by additional comedians, drag queens, and entertainers including Jim Andralis, DJ Jonjon Battles, Justin Vivian Bond, John Early, Cole Escola, Dan Finnerty, Murray Hill, Champagne Jerry, DJ Sammy Jo, Larry Krone, Erin Markey, Molly Pope, Marc Shaiman, Sweetie, The Tender Moments (Matt Ray, Mike Jackson, Carmine Covelli and Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz), Chris Tyler, Varsity Interpretive Dance Squad (VIDS), along with other surprises.

Ars Nova began its relationship with Bridget Everett in 2004. "I was enamored by her incredible voice," said Ars Nova Artistic Director Jason Eagan, who happened upon Everett standing atop a bar wailing out 4 Non Blonde's "What's Up" at a karaoke night. "And her even more incredible ability to physically touch everyone in the bar in inappropriate places." Everett's theater and television credits include Inside Amy Schumer, Two Broke Girls, Sex and the City, and the upcoming Judd Apatow-produced film Trainwreck.
