Acclaimed retro-pop singer/songwriter Lauren Marcus and her illustrious band of New York City musicians make their Feinstein's/54 Below debut this summer.

Lauren is well-known to theater audiences for her performances as Amy in Company (Barrington Stage Company), Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors (Pittsburgh Public Theater), and Brooke in Be More Chill (Broadway), but this? This is a whole 'nother side of the gal. After delighting audiences with several Rockwood Musical Hall residencies over the past few years, Lauren and her boys are thrilled to be bringing their downtown spirit up a ways to 54th Street.
