Ciara Renee, Corey Mach & More Set for BROADWAY SINGS JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE at 54 Below and (le) Poisson Rouge this July
Some of Broadway's hottest talents will sing completely new arrangements of the hits of Justin Timberlake in the sixth concert of the BROADWAY SINGS concert series. More than 15 Broadway performers will be accompanied by a full jazz band playing brand new, original orchestrations of the singer's greatest songs. Previous artists honored in the series were Adele, Michael Jackson, Beyoncé, Stevie Wonder, and Amy Winehouse.
The two identical concerts will feature cover songs to celebrate Timberlake's iconic songs, including "Cry Me a River", "Suit and Tie", and "My Love", as well as popular hits from his legendary boy band, 'N SYNC. The music will be orchestrated and arranged by Joshua Stephen Kartes.
Performers will include Jason Gotay (Spider Man: Turn Off the Dark, Bring it On), Amber Iman (Soul Doctor), Jay Armstrong Johnson (Hands on a Hardbody, Hair), Mykal Kilgore (Motown, The Book of Mormon), Corey Mach (Hands on a Hardbody, Godspell), Marla Mindelle (Cinderella, Sister Act), Ciara Renée (Pippin, Big Fish), and Zak Resnick (Mamma Mia). Additional performers will be announced at a later time.
In the late 1990's, Justin Timberlake rose to fame as the lead vocalist of boy band 'N SYNC. He became one of the most commercially successful singers of the decade after releasing his first two solo albums (Justified and FutureSex/LoveSounds), which both exceeded sales of seven million copies worldwide. Both his third and fourth albums (The 20/20 Experience, Parts 1 and 2) debuted at #1 on the charts. Timberlake's work has earned him nine Grammy Awards and four Emmy Awards.

In their description of 54 BELOW, The New York Times writes "the club has the intimacy of a large living room with unimpeded views and impeccable sound; there is not a bad seat. Its sultry after-hours ambience is enhanced by brocade-patterned wall panels planted with orange-shaded lanterns. And the atmosphere is warmer and sexier than in Manhattan's other major supper clubs." 54 BELOW features up to three shows nightly with cover charges ranging from $15-$95.
