Aug. 27 – 31
Broadway @ The Art House & Mark Cortale Present
Nancy & Beth
starring Megan Mullally and Stephanie Hunt
Emmy Award winning actress Megan Mullally (Children’s Hospital, Party Down and Will & Grace) met fellow actress Stephanie Hunt (Friday Night Lights, Californication and How To Live With Your Parents For the Rest of Your Life) while in Austin filming the independent movie Somebody Up There Likes Me. The minute the two started singing together they realized they had something special… and those that have come out to see their new band, Nancy and Beth, agree! Within just three months of their inception, N&B had already played such fabulous venues as Royce Hall in Los Angeles and been featured as a musical guest on Conan.
What people are saying about Nancy & Beth:
“The Andrews Sisters/Honky Tonk/C&W and some Joni Mitchell.”
“Megan is like the bastard child of Patsy Cline and Grace Slick.”
Megan Mullally is a two-time Emmy-winning star of TV’s Will & Grace, and recent star of Broadway’s Young Frankenstein. This August she returns to Provincetown for her third summer in a row – by popular demand – after her sold-out shows again last summer. Megan Mullally is best known for playing the iconic role of Karen Walker on the groundbreaking hit TV series Will & Grace for which she won two Emmy Awards, from a total of seven consecutive nominations between 2000 and 2006. She is also a three-time winner of the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series, a winner with her cast-mates of the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, is one of only two actresses to win a SAG Award three years in a row, and was nominated four years in a row for the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress. She made her Broadway debut as Marty in the 1994 revival of Grease with Rosie O’Donnell and subsequently appeared as Rosemary in the hit 1995 revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying opposite Matthew Broderick. In 2007, Mullally starred as Elizabeth in Mel Brooks’ original Broadway musical, Young Frankenstein. She can be heard on the cast albums of all three productions.
Stephanie Hunt is Megan Mullally’s partner in crime in the band Nancy & Beth. She has starred on TV’s “Friday Night Lights,” “Californication,” and “How To Live With Your Parents (For The Rest Of Your Life).” She and Mullally met on the film “Somebody Up There Likes Me.” She has performed as a musician at The Austin City Limits and SXSW (South by Southwest) music festivals, and recently appeared with Mullally and Seth Rudetsky on their sold-out Australian tour last February for Mardi Gras in Sydney and Melbourne.
