Bridget Everett

Media Title

In a world of cookie-cutter pop stars and auto-tuned lyrics, it’s incredibly refreshing when an artist really goes against the grain and creates something that breaks the mold in its quest to bring us something magical. Cabaret darling Bridget Everett is one of those unique performers, busting out of the lines with a wide-eyed yet raunchy, Bette Midler-esque stage show that guarantees in-your-face laughs while turning everything you’ve seen from everywhere else on their collective ears.

Originally hailing from the whirling metropolis of Manhattan—uh, that’s KS, not NY—Everett’s got classic Broadway-style pipes that lend an irresistible charm to an otherwise oddball performance, as she fully integrates an ample bosom into numbers already blessed by her surprisingly angelic, somewhat disarming vocal accompaniment. “Our Hit Parade,” Everett’s intriguing monthly revue of pop hits at NYC’s Joe’s Pub, enables the busty songstress to perform unhinged and unfiltered for her captivated, often-frightened audience, and by sprinkling her act with brutally-honest anecdotal nuggets and a sort of naughty charisma, she’s managed to earn herself a seat as one of the NYC’s top currently-active cabaret performers. In fact, Everett’s particular brand of tender, bawdy humor has earned her props from celebrity fans and respected publications, including comedienne sensation Amy Schumer, The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. You’ll see why.

This month, Everett brings her fearless performance to the newly re-opened Prince Music Theater’s Black Box, a splendid venue that provides the perfect level of grand intimacy this blonde powerhouse will need to dazzle your senses while completely ignoring your personal space in the process. // KENNEDY ALLEN
