Andy Mientus—seen on Broadway in Spring Awakening and Les Misérableswill be Skivvies star Nick Cearley's special guest at his upcoming solo show at 54 Below.

Actor-musician Cearley, who is currently playing his 10th engagement in Jonathan Tolins' comedy Buyer & Cellar (at New Orleans' Le Petit Theatre through February 3), will head to 54 Below February 9 at 7 PM for an evening titled I Didn't Recognize You with Your Clothes On.

Joined by a full band, led by pianist Lance Horne, the evening will mark Cearley's first solo show in over a decade. Mientus co-starred with Cearley in the recent Chicago premiere of Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas, and the two will share a Paul Williams song in homage of that production.

"Before The Skivvies," Cearley recently told Playbill, "I loved doing cabaret shows and concerts and doing very similar 'out there' musical arrangements, involving mash-ups and medleys that have a specific comedic angle to make you think of a song in a different way than you have heard them before. So, that will happen again. My dad was a DJ, and so I have grown up playing the 'this song sounds exactly like that song' game as long as I can remember. It is in my blood. And I think because The Skivvies are so nontraditional in the cabaret setting, I am trying to think out of the box to be, in fact, more traditional but still keep my edge that makes me 'me.'”

Cearley has been seen seen on Broadway in All Shook Up, while his Off-Broadway credits include A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Pageant, Sex Tips…, and Cupid & Psyche. Regionally, he has performed in Little Shop of Horrors, An Act of God, Next to Normal, and The Rocky Horror Show. He also co-conceived and starred in the actor-musician version of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, which premiered at the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park.
