Cast of Broadway's 'GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE' Joins Sky-Pony at 54 Below Tonight
Tonight, May 10 at 54 Below, join soprano Lauren Worsham -- Phoebe from Broadway's critically-acclaimed A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder -- as she introduces her Edwardian castmates to her rock band Sky-Pony. It's Broadway meets indie-rock in a supper club setting.
For one show only, the ladies and gentleman of Gentleman's Guide will join fellow castmate Lauren Worsham and her pop-art band Sky-Pony for a night of mashups and crossovers. Sky-Pony focuses its songs on the darker side of humanity, so the folks from Gentleman's Guide should have no trouble fitting in.
Special guests include stars of Gentleman's Guide Bryce Pinkham (Monty) and Lisa O'Hare (Sibella) and fellow castmates Catherine Walker, Jeff Kready, Joanna Glushak and Price Waldman. Minds will be blown.
It all happens on Saturday May 10 at 54Below (254 W 54 Street, NYC). It's a late show, with doors at 10pm and the show at 11pm. Tickets are $30-40. Advance tickets are available at http://www.54below.com.

Sky-Pony is a Brooklyn based band that serves up lush, lyrical, often cheeky indie-pop with a healthy dose of theatrics. They incorporate costumes, choreography, and projections into their high-energy live shows. Rock concert meets performance art meets burlesque, you might say. Their discography includes two EPs: Say You Love Me Like You Mean It and Raptured Live, both available on itunes. In addition to Worsham and Jarrow, Sky-Pony also features the talents of Kevin Wunderlich, Lizzie O'Hara, Kristine Piacentile, Jessi Suzuki, Perry Silver, Eric Day and David Blasher. They've been called "flamboyant art pop" by The New York Times and "a 1960s girl group on crack-- tight, fierce, hilarious and out of their minds" by The Wall Street Journal.

A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder (bottom photo), currently running on Broadway, has been called the "THE NEW UNDISPUTED KING OF MUSICAL COMEDY!" (Time Out New York). Broadway's knock-'em-dead hit tells the uproarious story of Monty Navarro, a distant heir to a family fortune who sets out to speed up the line of succession using a great deal of charm... and a dash of murder. The Hollywood Reporter wrote that it "RESTORES OUR FAITH IN MUSICAL COMEDY!" It stars Jefferson Mays, Bryce Pinkham, Lisa O'Hare and Lauren Worsham. http://www.agentlemansguidebroadway.com/
