Susan Egan Brings THE BELLE OF BROADWAY to 54 Below on 4/15 & 18Susan Egan Brings THE BELLE OF BROADWAY to 54 Below on 4/15 & 18
by BWW News Desk - Apr 11, 2014

54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, presents Susan Egan in her critically-acclaimed, one-woman show, "Susan Egan: The Belle of Broadway" on April 15 at 9:30pm (SOLD OUT) and (added by popular demand) April 18 at 11:00pm. Egan's 54 Below debut reunites her with audiences at the infamous Studio 54, where she portrayed "Sally Bowles" in Cabaret longer than any other actress during the previous revival, winning critical raves from every major New York publication. Her appearance also coincides with the 20th anniversary of her Broadway debut in "Beauty and the Beast," (4/18/1994) for which she was nominated for both Tony and Drama Desk Awards as "Best Actress." "The Belle of Broadway" showcases Egan's diverse acting chops, riotous humor and celebrated voice, which critics dub "the perfect Broadway instrument." Throughout the evening, Susan takes you on a journey from Belle to beyond, with hilarious personal anecdotes and magnificent music by classic Broadway composers as well as songs from today's hottest new writers. Susan has performed her concert throughout North and South America and will be launching a new tour with LML Music Presents in association with Live On Stage out of Nashville starting in fall of 2014.
