Originally commissioned as part of The Joe's Pub 2013 New York Voices series, Rock Bottom became a downtown hit when it opened to critical acclaim in September, and was extended until its limited engagement ended on October 16. Now, due to popular demand and its recent sold-out run, Bridget Everett returns for a limited engagement at Joe's Pub.
Rock Bottom is what happens when you are too passionate to give up, and too big to fail. The ferociously talented Bridget Everett wrote the show, a chardonnay-soaked journey through the highs and lows of her life, with the Tony Award-winning songwriting duo Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. Longtime collaborators and friends Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz and Matt Ray contributed music as well. In it, Everett shares intensely personal moments next to wildly hilarious ones, baring her heart and much more to her audiences. Rock Bottom features new original songs written with Shaiman, Wittman, Ray and Horovitz, plus favorites from Everett's monthly sold-out show with the Tender Moments.
