The Public Theater's production of Rock Bottom created by and starring Bridget Everett will return for another limited off-Broadway run at Joe's Pub next year. Performances take place between 6 Januray and 20 February 2015.

"How could we, a mere theater, resist the unstoppable force that is Bridget Everett?" said Public Theater Artistic Director Oskar Eustis. "Resistance was futile - and not really as fun as bringing her back."

"It has been absolutely thrilling to watch how New York has embraced and exalted Rock Bottom and Bridget," said Director of Joe's Pub Shanta Thake. "We are delighted to be able to offer another dose of this phenomenal artist!"

Created by Bridget Everett, Marc Shaiman, Scott Wittman, Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz, and Matt Ray, Rock Bottom originally played performances at Joe's Pub from 9 September to 20 October 2014.

The production was originally commissioned as part of the Joe's Pub 2013 New York Voices series, and is directed by Scott Wittman. Bridget Everett barrels through life tip-toeing toward disaster, wine bottle by wine bottle and man by man. However, instead of succumbing to a chardonnay-induced stupor, Everett embraces a series of revelations that lead her and her voice of an angel to redemption.

The complete company of Rock Bottom will be announced at a later date.

Everett's costumes are provided by Larry Krone for House of Larréon.

Named for Public Theater founder Joe Papp, Joe's Pub at The Public debuted in 1998 and plays a vital role in The Public's mission of supporting young artists while providing established artists with an intimate space to perform and develop new work.
