Nightlife performer Tori Scott will offer a special late-night concert March 28 at 54 Below. The performer, last seen at 54 Below in August 2013, promises an irreverent evening of pop-rock tunes that celebrate poor life choices and tales of her misadventures with the gay community.
Scott's 54 Below appearances follow five acclaimed Joe's Pub performances. She also appeared at 54 Below with Bridget Everett, Amber Martin, Lance Horne and more, as part of the Thursday night late-night series 15:54.
Phantom of the Opera and Evita associate director Seth Sklar-Heyn directs the concert that has musical direction and arrangements by Jesse Kissel (The Scottsboro Boys, The Visit, Leap of Faith). Scott is backed by a three-piece band, which includes Brad Simmons, Mat Fieldes (Matilda The Musical) and Mike Lunoe.
Here's how the night of song and story is billed: "Tori Scott, Time Out New York's Top 10 Cabaret Artist of 2013, returns to 54 Below with her solo show I'll Regret This Tomorrow, an evening of brassy songs and slurred autobiographical stories. This salute to a glittering array of poor life choices, past and present, will feature Scott’s signature performances of hits by Dolly Parton, Judy Garland, Michael Jackson, Florence and the Machine and more. Tori Scott has also graced the stages of Joe’s Pub, the Laurie Beechman, the Metropolitan Room, and every gay bar on the Eastern Seaboard; counted to 20 as a singing garbage woman on Sesame Street; and dubbed the vocals of a singing hooker on HBO's 'Cathouse: The Musical.' She strives every day in every way to be a consummate lady and sometimes wonders if she actually still has a liver or not."
Scott has also appeared in the Ars Nova presentation of the new musical Taking Step Three13 and has also been a performer at Justin Sayre's The Meeting*. She is a graduate of the Boston Conservatory.
Tickets are priced $25. There is a two-drink minimum. Tickets and additional information are available at 54Below.com.
