New Monthly Cabaret Series
Featuring Sarah Jane Everman, Raymond J. Lee, Erin Quill and Paul Oakley Stovall
The Copper Room at Comix on Tues, Feb 23 at 8pm
Kearns Artist Services and COMIX are thrilled to announce a new cabaret series entitled “Out of the Ensemble” in COMIX’s new The Copper Room, located at 353 West 14th Street at 9th Avenue, NYC. The first performance of this new monthly series will be on Tuesday, February 23 at 8pm and will feature performers from current and past Broadway shows and national tours.
This month will feature Sarah Jane Everman (Shrek, Wicked), Raymond J. Lee (Mamma Mia!, Two Gentlemen of Verona), Erin Quill (Avenue Q, The King and I National Tour), and Paul Oakley Stovall (Rent National Tour).
The goal of the series is to highlight the talent of the unsung heroes of Broadway shows – The Ensemble. For one night, these talented performers will step “out of the Ensemble and into the spotlight” and have an opportunity to perform songs that they love. Each month they will also invite a new performer to sing a song on the bill to give exposure to up and coming talent as well.
Cover is $5 at the door and drink specials will include $5 cocktails and $3 draft beers all night in the The Copper Room.

Doors open at 7pm, show starts at 8pm. Seating is limited.
Performers For February 23, 2010

Additional Sarah Jane's Broadway credits include Wonderful Town and Shrek. She has performed regularly in the Off Broadway series “Encores!" in the shows Applause, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and Bye Bye Birdie.
Raymond J. .Lee has taken the Internet by storm as Archie Parks in his “Glee Audition” video, which now has over 20,000 hits. Currently Ray is starring as "Eddie" in the Broadway company of Mamma Mia!
