KIMMEL CENTER WELCOMES BACK AWARD-WINNING COMEDY-POP DUO THE SKIVVIES FOR THEIR NEW HOLIDAY SHOW I TOUCH MY ELF, DECEMBER 6 – 8, 2018
“Part Weird Al parody and part sexy burlesque” – Out Magazine
"Highly original...smart...ingenious" - The Wall Street Journal
"A hot musical comedy duo specializing in unexpected arrangements, incongruous mashups, and of course, highly toned displays of skin." - The New York Times
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Philadelphia, PA, October 8, 2018) – The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts invites you to ring in the holidays with eclectic seasonal tunes and comedic, genre-hopping mashups in I Touch My Elf – The Skivvies: Lauren Molina & Nick Cearley from Thursday, December 6 through Saturday, December 8, 2018 at the Kimmel Center’s SEI Innovation Studio. The award-winning performance duo of Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley pack each show with big voices and crazy harmonies, and often feature special celebrity guests ready for a wild, fun time.
“This hilarious and scantily-clad duo are back, as they put on an outrageous (and new) holiday spectacle that audiences will remember long after the holidays are over,” said Anne Ewers, President and CEO of the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. “We invite returning Skivvies followers and new fans to join us in our black box SEI Innovation Studio for this up-close and personal event from Broadway alums – and maybe one or two of their special guest friends?”
Featured in People Magazine’s “Hottest Bodies” issue and as Sports Illustrated’s “Favorite New Band”, The Skivvies are brought to the stage by New York “undie-rockers” Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley, as they not only strip down the arrangements – cello, ukulele, glockenspiel, melodica – but literally strip down to their underwear in the perfect combination of naughty and nice.
Other featured upcoming performances at the Kimmel Center Cultural Campus include: The Brian Setzer Orchestra’s 15th Anniversary Christmas Rocks! Tour (November 24, 2018, Academy of Music), Mannheim Steamroller Christmas by Chip Davis (December 1, 2018, Academy of Music), It’s Not You, It’s Me – The Second City (January 30 – February 2, 2019, Perelman Theater), and Martha Graham Cracker in Lashed but not Leashed (March 14-16, 2019, SEI Innovation Studio).
