Complete Casting Announced for Bridgett Everett's Rock Bottom at Joe's Pub
The new show opens the Public Theater's fall season.
Cole Escola, Celisse Henderson, and Chelsea Packard will join cabaret star Bridget Everett in her new show, Rock Bottom, running from September 9-October 11 at Joe's Pub...at the Public Theater. The official opening night is September 17.
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.
