The Skivvies. A not to be missed, sexy, entertaining, musical cabaret performance. New York based Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley are singers/actors/musicians who have performed anywhere they can take their clothes off, performing fun arrangements of eclectic covers and eccentric originals. Not only is the music stripped down — cello, ukulele, glockenspiel, melodica — but The Skivvies literally strip down to their underwear to perform. They’re popping into So Cal at the Laguna Playhouse for 2 performances only, Dec. 16 & 17, and this time there are more guests than an Andy Williams’ Christmas Special. But you’ll get just as much fur.

Joining Lauren and Nick is special guest, Broadway’s Nick Adams (Falsettos), who has been seen — all over — with the Skivvies before. Also appearing are jackbenny, Erik Altemus, Emerson Collins (Buyer and Cellar), Spencer Curnutt (The Lion In Winter), Laguna’s own Jason Feddy, Blake McIver, Tori Roze, Brett Ryback and the Playhouse’s Veltria Roman.

Nominated for “Show of The Year” for the 2015 MAC Award, Out Magazine says, “The Skivvies have managed to carve out a niche that we never knew needed to exist: part Weird Al-parody and part sexy burlesque…and unusual explosion of satire and sultry.”  The Skivvies have also been reviewed by The Wall Street Journal, People MagazineSports Illustrated, The New Your Times and many others.

Previous performances included a residency at New York’s 54 Below, Joe’s Pub, Roseland Ballroom, The Smith Center in Las Vegas and Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center. The Skivvies have also performed in Key West (FL), New Hope (PA), and many other locations and events including Broadway Bares and A Tribute to Angela Lansbury with Tyne Daly and Christine Ebersole.
