BROADWAY TRIVIA NIGHT, January 6 at 11:30PM:
On January 6th, join us for BROADWAY TRIVIA NIGHT: UNTOLD STORIES OF BROADWAY EDITION. The shows, actors, theaters, songs, and wild stories from Tepper's recently published book are all fair game for this Trivia Night, so get studying! If you know the difference between McHale's and Dinty Moore's, or remember which now-famous director once took a swig of Liza Minnelli's drink as a kid, you may just have The Edge in this month's competition. Have you often found yourself at pub quizzes or trivia nights struggling to answer questions over sports and science but dominating the Broadway/TV/Film round? Are you the token-musical theatre nerd in your group of friends who can spout off the lyricist, librettist, director, and design team of every Pulitzer Prize winning musical? Do you like friendly competition, winning prizes, and drinking delicious cocktails with Broadways best? Then this is the night for you. We're bringing your favorite game to Broadway's supper club! Hosted by 54 Below's own Director of Programming, Jennifer Ashley Tepper! No cover charge. $20 food & beverage minimum.
LATE NIGHT: BACKSTAGE, January 7 at 11:00PM:
Each week, Broadway cast members and audiences alike gather to mix and mingle at 54 Below, Broadway's most intimate haunt, located in the heart of the theatre district. Musical Director Brad Simmons keeps the house jumping from the piano, while host Susie Mosher (the love child of Joanne Worley & Paul Lynde) guides the crowd through an evening of music, mayhem and full throttle belting, with special guests from Broadway and beyond dropping in to perform. NPR had this to say: "The best thing happening right now might just be the weekly Backstage. Hosted by the ridiculously funny Susie Mosher and pianist Brad Simmons who clearly is the man, it's two feel-good hours among New York's theater people, who seem like they're having a really fine time. Can't recommend it highly enough!" At this week's Backstage is Sarah Rice (original Johanna in Sweeney Todd), Christine Pedi (Chicago, NEWSical), Rachel Lorin Filsoof, Ernesto Villalobos, and Martina Sykes. No cover charge. $25 food & beverage minimum.
