LATE NIGHT: BACKSTAGE, October 8 at 10:30PM:
Each week, Broadway cast members and audiences alike gather to mix and mingle at 54 Below, Broadway's most intimate haunt, located in the heart of the theatre district. Musical Director Brad Simmons keeps the house jumping from the piano, while host Susie Mosher (the love child of Joanne Worley & Paul Lynde) guides the crowd through an evening of music, mayhem and full throttle belting, with special guests from Broadway and beyond dropping in to perform. NPR had this to say: "The best thing happening right now might just be the weekly Backstage. Hosted by the ridiculously funny Susie Mosher and pianist Brad Simmons who clearly is the man, it's two feel-good hours among New York's theater people, who seem like they're having a really fine time. Can't recommend it highly enough!" At this week's Backstage is Pauletta Washington (Clear, Crowns, Two Trains), Kevin Meaney (Broadway's favorite Comedian), Marcus Paul James (In The Heights, Rent), Trapper Felides (The Next Big Thing), and Kevin Spirtas (Silence! The Musical, Boy From Oz). No cover charge. $25 food & beverage minimum.
