The Petersons to Play 54 Below, 9/27
54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, presents The Petersons in "Oh, my God! It's The Petersons!" on Saturday, September 27th at 930pm. The Petersons are a five piece contemporary music ensemble comprised of five accomplished actors, writers, and comedians who play original rock tunes and present a continuing serial comedy about a misfit band from upstate New York who still want to make it big. Having performed more than 40 of these episodes around New York City at Joe's Pub, Caroline's on Broadway, The Bottom Line and many other venues, the band returns to the scene with their first performance in several years. But don't call it a comeback!
Every Petersons show is new and unpredictable but they always bring a little bit of the old stuff for "the fans." And there is always a special guest! Previous guests include: Michael C. Hall, Paul Newman, Mila Kunis, Michael Emerson, James Naughton, Gavin Degraw, John Cameron Mitchell and many many others. We won't tell you who's in store for September 27th...but you won't be disappointed!
Adam Stein (Mr. Peterson) currently serves as a writer/producer on the bonkers CBS drama "Under The Dome." Keira Naughton (Mrs. Peterson) is known for her work on Broadway and for her performances at the Atlantic, Primary Stages, The Kennedy Center, Signature and many others. She recently won praise for her sexy and hilarious turn in the world premiere of Rolin Jones' "These Paper Bullets!" with songs by Billy Joe Armstrong. Matthew Saldivar (Julio) appeared as Black Stache in the Broadway run of "Peter and the Starcatcher", in John Rando's Obie winning production of "All In The Timing", and in James Lapine's "Act One" at Lincoln Center. (He will be featured in the upcoming "Honeymoon in Vegas" on Broadway this fall.) Evan Robertson (Father Tom) is a Yale and Julliard graduate whos work in the theater garnered him the Actor's Equity Award for his performance in "Much Ado About Nothing". In 2010, he received wide recognition for his series of literature-inspired illustrations that combine snippets of text with minimalist designs. His recent debut novel, "The Paris Journal", marries fiction and photography and is an Amazon #1 best seller. Pete (Pete Petersen) Simpson's credits are endless and his talents bottomless. He will appear in Young Jean Lee's "Straight White Men" at The Public Theater this fall. And (Ricky) Rick Holmes, who played Lord Astor in Peter and the Starcatcher on Broadway and Black Stache at New World Stages, has also appeared in many other principal roles on Broadway including "Spamalot." He will return from a summer at the Williamstown Theater Festival where he performed in "June Moon" and "The Visit" to play thunder on the skins.
So join the characters of Mr. And Mrs Peterson, Julio, Father Tom, Pete and Ricky for an absurd and touching musical romp at 54 Below.
