Jeremy Jordan, Santino Fontana, Kara Lindsay & More Set for A VERY BROADWAY VALENTINE'S DAY at 54 Below Tonight
On the eve of Valentine's Day, Kara Lindsay, currently starring in Disney's "Newsies" on Broadway, will be joined on-stage by her husband Kevin Massey (Memphis), her college best friend Kirsten Scott (Big Fish), her original "Newsies" co-star, Jeremy Jordan ('Smash'), his wife, Ashley Spencer (Rock of Ages), Santino Fontana ('Frozen'), his girlfriend Jessica Hershberg (Cinderella), Drew Gehling (Jersey Boys), his wife Sara Jean Ford (The Phantom of the Opera), Patrick Cummings (Happiness), his girlfriend, Alessa Neeck (Cinderella), Thea Brooks (Dirty Dancing), and musical director Benjamin Rauhala (Hit List) in a celebration of Broadway romance, both on and off-stage. The evening will also feature bluegrass trio 'Shubert Alley,' featuring Kevin Massey, his brother Patrick Massey, and Jamison Scott (Spider-Man). They will be accompanied by Rauhala on the keys, and Charlie Rosen (One Man, Two Guvnors), who will alternate on bass, acoustic guitar, and drums. This is one concert no hopeless romantic should miss!
All proceeds from the evening will be donated to Hope4Gavin, to support two-year-old Gavin Strand in his battle with cancer. Gavin is the son of musical director Rauhala's cousins Katie and Dan Strand, and was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on the day after his first birthday. He is in remission but continues to receive chemotherapy, and takes over 100 oral medications a month. He will finish treatment in July of 2014.

The venue provides a food and beverage menu from early evening through the wee hours of the morning that is worthy of the world-class entertainment on the stage. 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." Located at 254 West 54th Street, 54 BELOW features up to three shows nightly with cover charges ranging from $15-$95.
