I liked this event very much - paying through Goldstar was actually the best highlight (since it's $10 at the door). Cait was really funny, although at times I thought her transition from song to song could have been better. The room was cozy and I thought her rhymes were good. For $5, there's really no way to not enjoy the evening.

Sometimes life in Manhattan means cosmos and rent stabilized brownstones. Most times, it doesn’t. Meet our everyWOMAN: an unflappable, but lovable, 20-something New Yorker with a dream to “spread the truth” that Carrie Bradshaw is a lie.
Based on creator Doyle’s real life experiences, Hot Mess in Manhattan, is an evolving cross-breed of stand-up and cabaret that creates a vehicle for outstanding composers to showcase their writing styles and reach the musical theatre community hungry for new, relevant music. Composers already featured include Ryan Scott Oliver (Playwrights Horizon’s Mrs. Sharp), Adam Gwon (2008 Fred Ebb Award Winner, Ordinary Days), Gaby Alter (2008 Larson Award Winner), and more. Oliver and Gwon each received 2009 MAC Award nominations for Best Song for their contributions.
Hot Mess In Manhattan conceiver and MAC award winner Cait Doyle was last seen at the Public Theatre in This Preview is Rated RSO. Other notable roles include Cathy in the San Francisco premiere of “The Last 5 Years” and the Fringe Festival’s “Underwear: A Space Musical”. The show is musically directed by Sharon Kenny and is directed by MAC & Bistro award winning Jonathan Whitton.
