"N+N Productions is thrilled to be back at Tillman's to present the third installment of the Broadway Rhythm and Booze series, that celebrates soul music and live performance," said Nikole Vallins and Natalie Malotke, Producers. "The stage at Tillman's is an ideal venue for Broadway and emerging artists from a variety of disciplines to debut their own material and artistry. With the support of the Broadway community, we are able to reinvent Cabaret in New York and introduce a new family of rising stars."
Tillman's owner, Lesly Bernard, former co-owner of celebrity haunts Clementine and Taj and partner at Pravda, modeled the upscale eatery after a 1970's underground speakeasy. The venue is outfitted in authentic vintage furniture, funky wall designs that depict jazz legends from B.B King to Parliament and boasts a menu known for nine varieties of specialty grilled cheeses. Fan favorites include Brie And Spiced Pear with black truffle butter, French Onion Soup with roasted garlic & herbs, gruyere, caramelized onion compote, Vegan Mozzarella with tofu mozzarella, roasted vegetables and pesto and Smoked Salmon And Cream Cheese with red onion and french capers.
Reservations recommended, running time is one hour. Guests who attend the performance are invited to stay at Tillman's to enjoy dancing and signature classic cocktails.
