About the Show

The Skivvies are Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley, singer/actor/musicians who are known for their comedy-pop, "undie"-rock. Performing stripped down 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 will be joined by a variety of fabulous local guest performers. The New York Times calls them “a hot musical comedy duo specializing in unexpected arrangements, incongruous mashups, and of course, highly toned displays of skin.” Cearley and Molina were last seen at the Playhouse in 2019’s You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, and Cearley previously starred as Seymour in the 2017 production of Little Shop of Horrors.

About The Skivvies

The Skivvies

The Skivvies were born in 2012, when they became YouTube sensations with their unique covers of artists like Robyn, Carole King and Rihanna. The videos led to live shows, and now this “musically thrilling,” undie-rock, comedy-pop duo continues to perform to sold-out audiences in New York and beyond. Nominated for "Show of The Year" for the 2015 MAC Award, The Wall Street Journal calls them “smart, sophisticated…ingenious,” and 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…an unusual explosion of satire and sultry.” Follow them on Twitter and Instagram at @theskivviesnyc, and learn more at
