Dude, how cool is Kacie Sheik? She starred as Jeannie in the hit revival of Hair, she’s a complete rockstar, and she’s about to star as Gypsy Rose Lee in the musical February House, which opens at the Public Theater on May 8. We caught up with her backstage at Joe’s Pub, where she was singing some tunes in a recent showcase by Drew Gasparini. We chatted about hair — the show, and her actual lovely tresses – being fake-pregnant, and what it’s like to keep company with geniuses. Enjoy!
Oh that part about how we go to Duncan’s shows and sing harmonies to each other the whole time? Yup. Which we will be doing when he plays at Highline Ballroom on 4/25 and 4/26 with Suzanne Vega.
And then Kacie plays her solo show at Joe’s Pub on June 4th.
And then I play my solo show every morning in the shower, or also whenever anyone wants to go to karaoke with me. Or when I go to karaoke alone sometimes just to sing “Against All Odds” and “Creep” before bed.
