Photo Coverage: Tony Yazbeck Previews THE FLOOR ABOVE ME at 54 Below

Just in time for his return to Broadway as Gabey in next season's revival of ON THE TOWN, Tony Yazbeck heats up the stage in his 54 Below debut in THE FLOOR ABOVE ME. BroadwayWorld got a sneak peek at the show and brings you photos below!

THE FLOOR ABOVE ME will feature tunes spanning from MGM to Joni Mitchell, along with tales from his first Broadway gig at age 11 (as a Newsboy in Tyne Daly's Gypsy) and anecdotes from his professional and personal journey that has established him as a "stalwart New York song and dance man".

Yazbeck recently appeared in Little Me at Encores!, and has also starred in Gypsy (Tulsa), Chicago (Billy Flynn), Irving Berlin's White Christmas (Phil Davis), A Chorus Line (Al), Oklahoma!, Never Gonna Dance and NBC's Smash.

He will be joined by fellow Broadway's Curtis Holbrook (If/Then, West Side Story, Xanadu) and tap dance sensation Melinda Sullivan (So You Think You Can Dance, Glee). The night features musical direction and arrangements by Jerome Korman, and is written by Howard Emanuel.
