Barry Bostwick and Joanna Gleason Reunite in NICK & NORA Tonight at Feinstein's/54 Below
As previously announced, Tony Award-winners Barry Bostwick and Joanna Gleason will revisit Nick and Nora in a reunion concert presented by Feinstein's/54 Below, Broadway's Supper Club, tonight, May 2nd, 2017. The 7:00pm performance is sold out, but limited tickets remain for the 9:30pm performance.
In the 1930's, radio mystery theatre was the talk of the town. And so were Nick and Nora Charles! Join Feinstein's/54 Below for a tribute to the short-lived musical, and the radio plays of the 1930's. W54B Mystery Radio Players will gather to present a broadcast of the latest chapter in Dashiell Hammett's Nickand Nora Charles series. Inspired by the original 1934 broadcast of Hammett's The Thin Man, the concert evening will feature songs by Charles Strouse and Richard Maltby, Jr.. Complete with commercial breaks (featuring jingles by Musical Director James Horan), surprise guests, a celebrity narrator and sound effects create live, before your eyes -- and ears -- Nick and Nora Charles will take over the Feinstien's/54 Below stage for one night only.
In 1934, Dashiell Hammett published his final novel and introduced two of the most beloved couple in literature to the world. In 1991, Arthur Laurents (Gypsy, Do I Hear A Waltz?), Richard Maltby, Jr. (Closer Than Ever), and Charles Strouse (Annie, Rags, Bye, Bye Birdie) brought the extraordinary pair to Broadway. Despite an all-star ensemble, the short-lived musical failed to find an audience and closed after only nine performances. The musical has lived on through a cast recording and twenty-five years of Broadway legend.
Now, members of the original ensemble will reunite for two concerts to bring the notorious Nick and Nora to Feinstein's/54 Below in a special "radio play" presentation of the musical. Fans of the short-lived musical can expect to hear songs featured on the Original Cast Recording, as well as numbers cut in workshops and previews.
The concert will be narrated by Robert W. Schneider, one of the co-host's of the popular podcastBehind the Curtain: Broadway's Living Legends. In addition to Bostwick and Gleason, the evening will feature fellow original co-stars Timothy Connell (Nick & Nora), Yvette Lawrence (Falsettos, Beauty and the Beast, Nick & Nora) and Chris Sarandon (Dog Day Afternoon, The Light In The Piazza). Also featured in the evening are Marcus Choi (Allegiance), Tony Award-winner Cady Huffman (The Producers, Will Rogers' Follies, The Nance), Christine Pedi (Newsical), Lianne Marie Dobbs (Himself and Nora, White Christmas National Tour), Carly Sakolove (Newsical), Daniel Walstad (Mademoiselle Colombe, Charlie and Algernon) The W54B Radio singers: Arianna Armon (Mademoiselle Colombe), Kimberly Faye Greenberg (One Night With Fanny Brice), Paul Thomas Ryan (Onward Victoria), Thia Stephan (Charlie and Algernon).
Tickets for the May 2nd concerts are available at 54below.com/events/nick-nora-reunion-concert.
The evening is presented by the team that brought Onward Victoria, Charlie and Algernon, Eating Raoul, 70, Girls, 70 and Mademoiselle Colombe to New York's hottest supper club, with Musical Direction by James Horan and Direction by Steven Carl McCasland.
