This August, Michael Feinstein, Ambassador of the Great American Songbook, returns to the club that bears his name, alongside Christine Ebersole, two-time Tony Award-winner, for an unforgettable evening in Two for the Road.
Feinstein and Ebersole will take a summer stroll through classic standards such as "Stormy Weather," "Time After Time," "On the Atchison," "Topeka and the Santa Fe," and of course "42nd Street," in a resplendent celebration of the Great American Songbook. Serenaded by these two legendary performers of both nightclub and stage, prepare to be charmed in a glamorous evening of duets and medleys from Manhattan's Golden Age.
Michael Feinstein has built a dazzling career over the last three decades bringing the music of the Great American Songbook to the world with recordings that have earned him five Grammy Award nominations, Emmy nominated PBS-TV specials, acclaimed NPR series, and concerts spanning the globe. His work as an educator and archivist define Feinstein as one of the most important musical forces of our time.
Winner of two Tony Awards for Best Actress in a Musical (42nd Street and Grey Gardens), Christine Ebersole has also starred in film (Wolf of Wall Street), television ("Sullivan & Son," "Royal Pains"), and has performed concerts in theaters and concert halls across the country, from The Kennedy Center and Carnegie Hall to The Pasadena and Boston Pops. She was most recently nominated for a Tony Award for her acclaimed performance in War Paint on Broadway.

Two of NYC's top cabaret, sketch, and comedy performers - Larry Owens (Steppenwolf, LarryOwensLive, A Strange Loop) and James Jackson, Jr. (The Black-Ups, A Strange Loop) bring their hilarious tribute show to Feinstein's/54 Below highlighting the effect of Stephen Sondheim's musical genius on performers of all backgrounds. In an age where Diversity In Musical Theatre must be more than just a slogan, Putting Y'all Together is an homage to Mr. Sondheim's vast catalogue and opens the door to every performer seeking inspiration.
Larry Owens is a multi-hyphenate artist living in New York City. One of TimeOutNY's "comedian's we're obsessed with", Larry has numerous credits in the worlds of theatre, comedy, cabaret and indie film. He was most recently a staff writer for the TruTV show, "Paid Off" and an Audelco Award Nominee for his fresh portrayal of the Emcee in Cabaret. He performs almost nightly in New York City, in addition to directing, developing works for television, and advocating for America's marginalized citizens.
James Jackson, Jr. has committed several crimes since he was deposited in New York City back when Jesus was a boy. Before embarking on a cabaret career (The Black-Ups) that has seen him at Joe's Pub, Feinstein's/54 Below, DROM, The Duplex, the A.R.T.'s Club Oberon in Boston, and Los Angeles' Lyric Theatre, there were some national tours with angry Brits (Whistle Down The Wind), public belting in close proximity to Rockettes (The Radio City Christmas Spectacular), and more regional theater than any resume should have to deal with (Dreamgirls at Massasoit Theatre - DASH Supporting Actor Award), and even some time as a drag queen (Henri Gabler) with Exigent Theatre Company. Most recently, he has been blocked on Twitter by Kirstie Alley.
$25-$35 cover charge. $60 premium seating. $25 food & beverage minimum.
