This show is remarkable. Sherie Renee Scott is an incredible talent. It is a "small" show, so try not to pay full price. This is not to demean it in any way; it's just that it really is more a cabaret show than a Broadway show, and should not be charging B'way prices. So, of course, use Goldstar. It will delight you in many ways. She has a fabulous voice, the music is wonderful, the choreography is great, and she is very, very funny. Highly recommended. [extra added benefit: the occasional stars in the audience. The night I went, Jane Krakowski (from "30 Rock") was there!]

Everyday Rapture is the story of a young woman’s psycho-sexual-spiritual journey on the rocky path that separates her mostly Mennonite past from her mostly Manhattan future. Her life takes her from the cornfields of Kansas to the clover fields of New York (with a disturbing detour through YouTube). With a cast of five led by Sherie Rene Scott, Everyday Rapture also features songs made famous by David Byrne, Roberta Flack, U2, The Dap Kings and Judy Garland.
About the Ticket Supplier: Second Stage Theatre
Director Carole Rothman and actress Robyn Goodman founded Second Stage Theatre in 1979 to give ‘second stagings’ to contemporary American plays that originally failed to find an audience due to scheduling problems, inappropriate venues or limited performance runs. Since then, Second Stage has evolved from a small theatre into an Off-Broadway institution dedicated to developing plays, artists and audiences.
Second Stage Theatre gives new life to contemporary American plays through ‘second stagings;’ provides emerging authors with their Off-Broadway debuts; and produces world premieres by America’s most respected playwrights. Through both the production of new plays and long-term residencies that focus on artistic process rather than product, artists find a supportive environment in which to try new roles, production designs and writing techniques. Audiences are an essential factor in program development at Second Stage Theatre, which is nationally known for its dedication to building future audiences by educating teens about the art of contemporary theatre and encouraging their participation in the cultural life of New York City.
For nearly three decades, Second Stage Theatre productions have launched the successful careers of numerous directors, actors, playwrights and artists, many of whom regularly return to work at Second Stage. The company’s mission also has expanded to the commissioning of a body of multigenerational plays; the creation of a training base for young directors and a home base for mid-career directors; and the development of educational projects that are integrated with the ongoing artistic work at the theatre.
