“Scott has a bold, brassy voice and one of those quirky, expansive theater personalities that can really fill a stage.” – Michael Kuchwara, Associated Press

on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre

Roundabout Theatre Company’s Broadway production of Everyday Rapture, starring Sherie Rene Scott will end its limited engagement on Sunday, July 11th at 2:00PM.

The cast features Eamon Foley, Lindsay Mendez and Betsy Wolfe.

The artistic team includes: Choreography by Michele Lynch, orchestrations & arrangements by Tom Kitt, music supervision by Michael Rafter and music direction by Marco Paguia. The design team includes Christine Jones (Sets), Tom Broecker (Costumes), Kevin Adams (Lights), Brian Ronan (Sound) and Darrel Maloney (Projections).

“Just as the Broadway theater season is drawing to its close, a smashing little show has arrived to remind us of why so many of us keep going back to Broadway.  I can’t think of another production in recent years that captures and explains so affectingly the essence and allure of musicals, and why they’re such an indispensable part of the New York landscape.  Written by Dick Scanlan and Ms. Scott, and directed with virtuoso efficiency and wit by Michael Mayer.  Ms. Scott performs with the sophistication that a New York audience (or rather an audience of New Yorkers) demands. And there’s no denying that when she sings, from a wildly diverse song list, she’s polished and inventive. Ms. Scott naturally translates life size into bigger than life.  The orchestrations and arrangements for the first-rate onstage band are by Tom Kitt (the composer of Next to Normal). And her director is, remember, Mr. Mayer, the man who staged “Spring Awakening” and this season’s American Idiot.  What Ms. Scott and her team summon here is that strange alchemy of ego, hunger, desperation and mysticism that infuses every great Broadway performance. Ms. Scott has never shined brighter or more illuminatingly.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times READ HERE

“Sherie Rene Scott’s Everyday Rapture is a tuneful and witty autobiographical musical.  With those doleful eyes, that wide permafrost smile set at a perpetual three-minutes-to-irony, and a crinkly mezzo that slingshots from brassy to bruised, Sherie Rene Scott (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Aida) has steadily established herself as New York’s leading comic divette. Does that mean we care about her life? Scott, smartly, assumes we don’t.  Scott uses the blimp-hangar that is the American Airlines Theatre as an echo chamber for her wit, backed by her “Mennonettes” and an eclectic set list that ranges from Judy Garland to Tom Waits to, yes, an erotic Mr. Rogers tribute medley. Tom Kitt’s typically brilliant arrangements are half the reason for showing up; the other half is Scott, whose lambent ease with the absurd (cleverly refined by director Michael Mayer and book co-writer Dick Scanlan) makes Everyday much more than just another maudlin auto-cabaret.” Scott Brown, New York Magazine READ HERE

EVERYDAY RAPTURE’s Sherie Rene Scott in Star-Ledger

Roundabout’s EVERYDAY RAPTURE is currently playing on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre.

‘Everyday Rapture’ is paradise for star Sherie Rene Scott

The Star-Ledger
May 2, 2010
By Ronni Reich

“The idea of doing a one-person show was kind of a nightmare,” says Sherie Rene Scott. “I’m a very private person.”

This is the same Sherie Rene Scott starring in “Everyday Rapture,” which takes the idea of a solo show and turns it into a full-blast musical experience, complete with flashing lights, backup singers and signature dance moves. She’s also the same brassy-voiced diva to thrive in such attention-grabbing roles as Ursula in “The Little Mermaid” and Amneris in Elton John and Tim Rice’s “Aida.” And the same woman who, in her latest venture, openly shares hilarious, touching, detail-filled stories of a Mennonite childhood and of a journey to “semi”-stardom, complete with a candid announcement of her love of the audience’s adoring gaze.

The catch?

Those stories aren’t quite hers — or at least not entirely. “It’s all true, just not necessarily factual,” Scott says.
