Louis St. Louis Is STILL COMIN' IN THRU THE KITCHEN at 54 Below, 9/9-10
Composer / Arranger / Conductor / Lyricist / Author / Pianist / Conceptualizer / Singer / Entertainer LOUIS ST. LOUIS will open his "Still Comin' In Thru The Kitchen" a raise-the-roof concert that will return him to his earliest showbiz roots when he was conducting on Broadway while moonlighting at Manhattan's hottest cabarets where he packed 'em in nightly.
He sold out The Rainbow Room. He sold out Reno Sweeney's. He sold out the Grand Finale. In Los Angeles he sold out Studio One. Then went to San Francisco to sell out The Magambo.
He sold out these rooms week after week; month after month. And if you have ever been to a Louis St. Louis music event; you know why he was the biggest cabaret draw downtown for years; all the while reigning supreme over all of Broadway's orchestra pits.
On Tuesday, September 9 and Wednesday, September 10 he is going to repeat history by opening his raise-the-roof concert, "Still Comin' In Thru The Kitchen" at 54 Below (254 West 54 Street, Cellar - between Broadway & Eighth Avenue). Both Concerts are at 7:00pm and are almost sold out.
A product of Detroit's Pentecostal Church, where he served as Musical Director from the age of fourteen, a Louis St. Louis show is as emotionally driven, as it is a high-octane musical combustion of explosive energy on a nitric oxide hook-up.
Joining him on stage are his illustrious Guest Artists: Loni Ackerman, Ramona Keller, Francine Finley, Frank Pagano, Michael Park, Darryl Jovann Williams and Vivian Reed who will leave enough of the room in tact for the night's very special guest, Lana Cantrell.
This multi-million dollars worth of talent will help deliver Mr. St. Louis' original award-winning songs from his Broadway shows (Grease, Grease 2, Apaixonado, Wuthering Heights, Sugar Hill (based on an original Story by Roberto Fernandez) and Truckload), Hollywood blockbusters (Grease & Grease 2), his two award-winning original musicals in China (The Monkey King and The Joker's Game) plus bonus award-worthy material from upcoming Broadway shows and future films.
Besides the slew of coveted trophies for his two musicals in China, Mr. Louis was recently honored with a host of awards for his ambitious GOSPEL transforming version of Sir Andrew Lloyd Weber's Jesus Christ Superstar at Atlanta's historic Alliance Theatre. It was, to date, the largest event presented in the venerable Tony Award winning theatre's 43 year history. His re-thinking of the epic musical gave that city's critics much to celebrate and the SUZI BASS AWARDS nominating committee much to honor. The cast featured 60 of the entertainment industry's finest singers.
