One of Time Out New York's "ten New York City women every gay man should know and be obsessed with," celebrated vocalist and comedic performance artist Amber Martin brings her award-winning chops to 54 Below for two jaw-dropping performances. Her new show, Hi!, is an arousing, if not mind-altering hour of meticulously chosen musical and comedic vignettes from Amber's strange and fascinating toy box of characters. Blending music, raunch, stories, movement and acid-capped comedy with a pristine, multi-octave solo singing voice, Amber has seasoned her previous performances with rotating celebrity collaborators Bridget Everett, Justin Vivian Bond, Casey Spooner, John Cameron Mitchell, Jake Shears and Karen Black, to name a few. See why Martin's performances have left such celebrity audience members as Joan Rivers (Ms. Rivers personally invited Amber to open her solo show run), William Hurt, Sandra Bernhard, Joyce Dewitt, Cindy Sherman, Michael Stipe, Gus Van Sant, Chuck Palanhuik, Michael Cunningham and Todd Haynes howling with delirium. Get your tickets now and put on your thinking caps for an old school downtown-style cocktail performance by one of the next sensations of thought-provoking musical comedy.
