Critically-acclaimed cabarettist Molly Pope returns to Joe’s Pub with her album show, An Audience with Molly Pope. Drawing from a catalogue of re-contextualized pop, theater and standards, the “viscerally thrilling alto” (Time Out New York) wryly constructs and deconstructs herself with her signature neo-retro style. Part concert, monologue, sing-a-long and heart-to-heart, she echoes the heyday of Greenwich Village nightclubs in a current context. Ms. Pope’s “powerhouse vocals and sassy wit” (Out.com) paint the madcap picture of a 21st century singer with the band. You are all cordially invited to An Audience with Molly Pope.
MOLLY POPE is a singer and actor whose shows have played Joe’s Pub, Ars Nova, Feinstein’s/54Below and Feinstein’s at the Regency, The Eugene O’Neill Theater Center, OBERON (A.R.T.), Austin Cabaret and the Adelaide Cabaret Festival in Australia.
