Molly Pope, modern cabaret star
Why you should be obsessed:
Let the Vatican keep its stern old pope; Greenwich Village is happy to coddle Molly. A proudly old-school belter with a booming alto voice and a personal style straight from The Ed Sullivan Show—her red hair is often swept up to impressive heights—Pope is a fixture at such downtown series as Our Hit Parade and the Meeting*. When her throbbing vibrato hits the sweet spot, no one with a taste for pre-Madonna gay culture fails to quiver.—AF
Molly Pope performs regularly at Our Hit Parade at Joe's Pub.
