GUEST APPEARANCE BY CONSTANTINE MAROULIS
Rachel Potter, who is currently portraying the Mistress in the Broadway revival of Evita, will play the intimate stage of Joe's Pub May 13. The 9:30 PM concert will celebrate the release of Potter's debut country EP, "Live the Dream." The evening will also feature a guest appearance by Tony-nominated actor Constantine Maroulis.
This highly anticipated independent release marks her first collaboration with songwriter and producer, Justin York. The result of a remarkably successful Kickstarter campaign, an online independent fund raising platform, Rachel surprisingly doubled her fundraising goal with the help of family, friends and fans. "It's got real guts," says Potter of the co-written EP, "We wanted to make a record that joined pop country music with a rock edge - Think Carrie Underwood or Taylor Swift with a Paramore twist. It's a risk, but it's exciting."
Ms. Potter is currently appearing as the Mistress in this season's buzzworthy Broadway revival, Evita. She appears alongside Ricky Martin, Elena Roger, and Michael Cerveris at the Marquis Theater. Rachel made her Broadway debut as "Wednesday Addams" in The Addams Family starring Brooke Shields, following a tour with Stephen Schwartz's smash hit musical, Wicked. Rachel has also performed the roles of Ariel, Belle, and Nemo, among others, at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The evening will feature some of New York's finest musicians performing songs from the EP, as well as guest appearances by Constantine Maroulis, Cosmo-Country sensation The Vanity Belles, and The Country Band featuring Marty Thomas.
