Rita Wilson Performs At 54 Below April 14-20

Rita Wilson Performs At 54 Below April 14-20CHICAGO on Broadway's well-remembered Roxie Hart, Hollywood notable Rita Wilson, will headline a week of shows at NYC's cabaret mecca 54 Below in April.

Besides making a mark in CHICAGO, Wilson also appeared Off-Broadway in Nora and Delia Ephron's LOVE, LOSS & WHAT I WORE, as well as acted as a producer of the super-successful feature film adaptation of MAMMA MIA.

Wilson remarks upon AM/FM - a companion concert to her newly-released solo album of the same name featuring songs of the 1960s and 70s - "The song sequence on the album tells a story of a very innocent, idealized version of love in the 'AM' section, before it shifts to the 'FM' section and becomes more about the disillusionment that happens after you've had some heartbreaks."

Of course, in real life, Wilson is married to two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks - who himself is making his Broadway debut this season in Nora Ephron's LUCKY GUY, opening soon.

Wilson will perform nightly at 9:30 PM April 14-18, with special 8:30 PM and 11 PM shows on April 19 and a final 8:30 PM closing show on April 20. Tickets are available now.
