Hunter Foster, Katie Finneran & More Set for IF IT ONLY EVEN RUNS A MINUTE at 54 Below, 4/21
Sometimes Broadway musicals run forever, like Cats or Les Miserables. But sometimes, Broadway musicals run for only a minute, like Merrily We Roll Along, High Fidelity, or Via Galactica. This is their story.
If It Only Even Runs A Minute is the Bistro Award-winning concert series celebrating rare songs, behind-the-scenes tales, and inspiring photos from underappreciated musicals. Created and hosted by 54 Below Director of Programming Jennifer Ashley Tepper and Book of Mormon's Kevin Michael Murphy, with musical direction by Joshua Zecher-Ross, each concert includes performances and stories from original cast members and writers of selected featured shows, as well as new interpretations.
The 12th edition of the concert, set for April 21 at 54 Below, will feature performances from Katie Finneran (Annie, Promises Promises), Hunter Foster (The Bridges of Madison County, Hands on a Hardbody), Anita Gillette (Chapter Two, Brighton Beach Memoirs), A.J. Holmes (The Book of Mormon, Team StarKid), Beth Leavel (Baby, It's You!, The Drowsy Chaperone), Mike Rosengarten (Hard Times, Hank Williams: Lost Highway), Chip Zien (The Big Knife, Into The Woods), and more to be announced.
This edition will features stories about and songs from Chess, The Civil War, Happiness, Mr. President, Ride The Winds, Ruthless!, Up In One, Weird Romance, and more to be announced.
Previous editions of Runs A Minute have played at the New York Musical Theatre Festival, Caroline's on Broadway, The Laurie Beechman Theatre, Joe's Pub and Le Poisson Rouge.
