Molly Pope is the next big thing of 1963…she transports the audience back to the thriving Greenwich Village nightclub scene of yesteryear…viscerally thrilling alto: a rich gusher of sound…

Time Out New York

It would have been enough for Pope to just be a (phenomenal) singer, but by gum, she’s a legitimate actress, too. It’s only a matter of time before Broadway discovers one of its greatest stars.

Irreverent wit and multigenerational cultural savvy…

The New York Times

After a lifetime overthinking every second of every day, cabarettist Molly Pope sets out to find the one thing that has always escaped her: a good time. Armed with the two things absolutely necessary for a good time—a gay man and a piano—she indulges in a set of songs she’s always wanted to tackle, but never found a good excuse to sing until now. With concepts like “fun” and “joy” and “just ’cause” on hand, she deploys her signature neo-retro style to get back to the elemental sweet spot of cabaret.
