Sherie Rene Scott has two recordings in the works: a record of her solo show Piece of Meat, currently running at 54 Below, as well as a new digital single of the 1937 pop standard “The Folks Who Live on the Hill,” accompanied by pianist Bill Charlap.
The single’s “B-side” will be the ballad “Nothing Is Too Wonderful To Be True” from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, which earned Scott a Tony nomination for Best Actress in a Musical in 2005. The single is currently only available for digital download.
Details of the Piece of Meat recording will be announced at a later date, but Scott is performing the return engagement of her acclaimed show through June 29 at 54 Below. The actress recently brought the solo show to London and chatted about the evening on Show People.
Piece of Meat is a “hybrid live-performance experience” that mashes up storytelling and music, and features songs by Dire Straits, Joni Mitchell, Paul McCartney, Peter Townshend, Annie Lennox and Buddy Holly. Todd Almond also contributed original compositions to the show.
