Kate Shindle Brings BINDER OF BROKEN DRAEMS to 54 Below Tonight
54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, presents KATE SHINDLE with her "Binder of Broken Dreams" tonight, June 24, 2014. Georgia Stitt serves as musical director for Shindle's 54 Below solo debut.
"The show is a collection of some of the many songs I've learned for projects I didn't end up doing, for one reason or another," Shindle says. "It's everything from songs I had to learn overnight for a callback, to stuff from shows I've workshopped, to my go-to audition pieces. They get all layered on top of each other in those skinny black binders, and sometimes they don't resurface for a long time. Then they just stare at you. It was a little bit of an exercise in masochism to put together a whole show, but it's a lot of fun to revisit the songs-and stories-that pile up over a dozen or so years in the business."
Kate Shindle plays 54 Below (254 West 54th Street) on June 24, 2014. There is a $25-50 cover charge and $25 food and beverage minimum. Tickets and information are available at www.54Below.com. Tickets on the day of performance after 4:00 are only available by calling (646) 476-3551.

54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, is the new performance venue in the grand tradition of New York City nightlife. A few blocks from the heart of Times Square and just below the legendary Studio 54, 54 BELOW is a classically designed state-of-the art nightclub in the theatre district that hosts audiences with warmth and style. 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.
