Nellie McKay

Score: 0

Sister Orchid marks Nellie McKay’s seventh label release in just thirty-one years. Her previous albums are My Weekly Reader, Get Away from Me, Pretty Little Head, Obligatory Villagers, Home Sweet Mobile Home, and Normal as Blueberry Pie (A Tribute to Doris Day).

On Broadway, she won a Theatre World Award for Outstanding Debut Performance for her portrayal of Polly Peachum in The Threepenny Opera. She also cocreated and starred in the award-winning Off-Broadway hit Old Hats and has written and produced musical biographies around a compelling gallery of ladies, from environmental pioneer Rachel Carson to the convicted murderer and underdog Barbara Graham. Most recently, she wrote, produced, and performed solo in The Big Molinsky: Considering Joan Rivers and in A Girl Named Bill: The Life and Times of Billy Tipton, a mid-century, cross-dressing jazz bandleader, which the New York Times named one of the best concerts of 2014.
