JARROD SPECTOR, May 16 at 11PM:
Back by popular demand! Tony Award nominee Jarrod Spector, who is starring in the new Broadway hit Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, returns to 54 Below to celebrate his brand new album A Little Help >From My Friends: Live at 54 BELOW! This acclaimed musical outing traces the legacy of the great male singers whose vocal prowess made them the rock stars of their generations, even before rock was born. After starring as Frankie Valli for six years in Broadway's smash hit musical Jersey Boys, Jarrod wraps his critically-praised voice around the songs that have made superstars out of more than a century of tenor legends from Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson to the great Enrico Caruso himself. In anticipation of Broadway Records' official release of the album on March 25th, CDs will be available for purchase at all four performances with a chance to have copies autographed. "By evening's end, it's clear that had Spector chosen not to devote his career to Broadway...this slightly petite dynamo with the big voice and the killer falsetto could easily earn his own place in the vaulted pantheon of pop royalty." -Brian Scott Lipton, TheaterMania. $35-45 cover charge. $25 food & beverage minimum.
