Photo Coverage: Dee Snider Gives 54 Below Preview!

‚Äč

Heavy metal icon Dee Snider, lead singer of the legendary 1980's rock band Twisted Sister ("We're Not Gonna Take It," "I Wanna Rock!"), has gone on to success with his own radio talk show, in film and on television, including his recent and forthcoming appearances on The Celebrity Apprentice. But Dee's longtime passion is Broadway, as evidenced by his new CD, Dee Does Broadway, in which he covers everything from West Side Story and Sweeney Todd to Sweet Charity and Chicago. Broadway audiences embraced him during his recent stint in Rock of Ages, and, on this season of The Celebrity Apprentice, his charity of choice is none other than Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Join Dee for two very special performances this holiday season - it's showtunes and Christmas songs like you've never heard them before! He gave a special press preview from his upcoming engagement at 54 Below yesterday, and BroadwayWorld brings you complete coverage below!

Designed by Tony Award winner John Lee Beatty and architect Richard Lewis, lit by Tony Award winner Ken Billington, and with sound by Tony Award nominee Peter Hylenski, 54 BELOW features an in-your-living-room intimate relationship between its performers and audiences. Tony Award winner Scott Wittman serves as creative consultant and MAC Award Winner Phil Geoffrey Bond serves as director of programming. André J. Marrero is the Executive Chef of the new venue, which provides a food and beverage menu from early evening through the wee hours of the morning that is worthy of the world-class entertainment on the stage. Bringing together his love of the arts with his passion for cooking and hospitality, Chef André has created a market driven contemporary bistro menu that includes ingredients sourced from all over the world.

54 BELOW is managed by Tony Award winning producers Tom Viertel, Marc Routh, Richard Frankel, and Steven Baruch. 54 BELOW features up to three shows nightly and has audio and video recording capabilities.
