BWW TV: On the Scene at 54 Below with Jason Robert Brown, Lindsay Mendez & More!
Performers from three upcoming concerts at 54 Below, including THE LAST 5 YEARS IN CONCERT (10/16-19), PRINCESSES THE MUSICAL, A CLASS REUNION (10/21), and SIN TWISTERS (10/9) recently met the press for a special performance preview. BroadwayWorld brings you highlights from the festivities below!
Two beloved Tony-nominated Broadway actresses, Penny Fuller and Anita Gillette, join forces for a delectable evening of humorous reflection and harmonious song in Sin Twisters, a show with a devilish spoonerism of a title. On the streets of Manhattan and Los Angeles, these vibrant and savvy veterans of over two dozen Broadway productions, as well as countless films and television shows, are constantly being mistaken for each other, although one is at least three inches taller, and one is a blonde and the other, a redhead. Yet, during their respective careers, they have both tackled some of the same parts, including the plum role of Sally Bowles in the original Broadway production of Cabaret. Sin Twisters joyfully celebrates these similarities but also gives full voice to these two remarkable performers' differences as artists and as women. This show is a must for anyone who loves theater lore and cherishes the enduring bonds of friendship.
In celebration of the brand new cast recording of Jason Robert Brown's much-loved musical, 54 Below is delighted to tip our hat to Jamie & Cathy for four very special concerts. Join the stars of the recent revival, Betsy Wolfe & Adam Kantor, as we wind our way through this brilliant score. If you don't get your tickets in The Next Ten Minutes, You Can Do Better Than That! Goodbye Until Tomorrow.
What do Broadway's Lindsay Mendez (Broadway's Elphaba), Sierra Boggess (Broadway's Little Mermaid), Patti Murin (Broadway's Lysistrata Jones), Marissa Perry (Broadway's Tracy Turnblad), and Jenny Fellner(Broadway's Sophie in Mamma Mia) have in common? Ten years ago this October, they all began their New York careers as Princesses. On October 14, all these ladies plus Brent Barrett, Donna English, and Anne Letscher reunite at 54 Below to celebrate in song and story the beloved show that brought them all together: Princesses - The Musical. Written by Tony winner David Zippel (City of Angels, Disney's Hercules), Oscar and Grammy nominee Matthew Wilder (Disney's Mulan) and Emmy and Golden Globe winners Cheri & Bill Steinkellner (Cheers, Sister Act - The Musical), Princesses follows a group of jaded private-school girls forced by their teacher to put on a show. They'd rather die, until one girl's movie-star dad, the former Sexiest Man Alive, shows up to direct the beleaguered production.
Located at 254 West 54th Street, 54 BELOW features up to three shows nightly with cover charges ranging from $15-$95.
