Celina Carvajal, who plays Nicola in the Tony Award-winning musical Kinky Boots, performs with the 1980s band Jessie's Girl June 29 at the Canal Room in New York City.

The 11:30 PM concert features 80s hits played by a seven-piece band, and DJ Pete Bones and DJ Ricky Rick spin hits from the 80s before and after the show.

Jessie's Girl is described as "the definitive 80s experience! Throw on top of that: a load of super-fun choreography, audience participation, props, costumes bubbles, and confetti...and you have a party you won't want to leave! Members of the Jessie's Girl have toured the country and performed onstage with 80s artists Bret Michaels, MC Hammer, Tiffany, Debbie Gibson, Colin Hay (Men At Work), Naughty By Nature, Tone Loc and many more."

Carvajal has also appeared on Broadway in Tarzan, Dracula, 42nd Street and Cats. Her other stage work includes The Toxic Avenger, Rooms (New World Stages), Radiant Baby (Public Theater), Empire (Spiegelworld), Prometheus Bound (A.R.T.), The Last Goodbye (Williamstown) and Bedbugs!!! (NYMF Outstanding Actor Award).
