About This Show

Originally commissioned as part of The Joe’s Pub 2013 New York Voices series, Rock Bottom will have a full theatrical run as part of The Public’s 2014-15 season. Written by the ferociously talented Bridget Everett with Tony Award-winning songwriting duo Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz and Matt Ray, Rock Bottom is the entertainer’s first major production since her 2007 musical At Least It’s Pink. Rock Bottom is what happens when you’re too passionate to give up, and too big to fail. In it, Everett, who The New York Times has called a “pure id on the rampage,” 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.
