Feinstein’s/54 Below, Broadway’s Supper Club, presents Sharron Matthews in Sharron Matthews Naked on Friday, October 28th, 2016. Named the “Redheaded Canadian Goddess of Cabaret” by the Scotsman Newspaper, “Best Cabaret Performance of 2015” (BroadwayWorld), “Best Cabaret Performer” (Toronto’s NOW Magazine), and the “#1 Cabaret in New York City in 2010” (NiteLife Exchange and WPAT Radio), Sharron returns to NYC, six years after her exciting, sold-out, two-night debut at Joe’s Pub.
Spinning the music of AC/DC, Amy Winehouse, Chaka Kahn, Beyoncé, Annie Lennox, Cheap Trick, P!NK, Coldplay, U2, Serena Ryder, the Beatles and more into her acclaimed, singular musical arrangements, Sharron takes you straight to the bone with her spellbinding stories of want, of need, of love, of fear and, as always, of hysterical joy. In Naked, Sharron strips down musically and emotionally, pulling the audience into this intimate performance in a way that is both moving and breathtaking. Sharron has been performing her sold out cabarets from South Africa to New York for the last 11 years, and this is one of her finest moments. In Sharron Matthews Naked, there is truly something for every music lover, comedy lover, as well as the lover of a good story. It is a night not to be missed.
