Broadway Records Announces the Return of Micky Dolenz: A LITTLE BIT OF BROADWAY, A LITTLE BIT OF ROCK N' ROLL at Feinstein's/54 Below
Broadway Records has announced that "Micky Dolenz: A Little Bit Broadway, A Little Bit Rock & Roll - LIVE at Feinstein's/54 Below" is back by popular demand for a return engagement.
In July of 2015, Micky Dolenz performed several sold-out evenings at Feinstein's/54 BELOW, the famed performance venue in New York City. This charming Broadway performer and legendary rock 'n' roll star will be back at Feinstein's/54 Below March 24th-29th 2017. The live album of this show, which bears the same title, was released on September 25, 2015, and is available for purchase on Amazon, iTunes and www.BroadwayRecords.com.
Micky will also be performing as a guest at his sister Coco Dolenz's Feinstein's/54 Below debut on March 25th at 9:30pm and as part of the cast of Tara Tremendous on March 28th at 7:00pm.
This show is a way for Dolenz to combine his love of Broadway with his love for rock 'n' roll into one exuberating concert. The return engagement will consist of some of The Monkees greatest hits and rarities, along with songs from the musical roles he has performed and the shows he loves, including some additional material that has been added since his previous shows at the venue. Dolenz frames each song with personal anecdotes and behind the scenes insights, such as his friendship with the Beatles, how he met his wife and the fact that stalwarts Neil Young and Ry Cooder played on the original recording session for "As We Go Along." The compilation of songs and stories promises to create a joyous and nostalgic atmosphere for both Dolenz and the audience.
On his previous shows at the famed venue, Hollywood Reporter said, "Delivering exuberant versions of several classic Monkees hits interspersed with theatrical songs both familiar and relatively obscure, the still youthful 70-year-old singer performed with an obvious joy that proved infectious."
The Huffington Post said, "The highlight for me was the show tunes, ranging from "Don't Be The Bunny," from Urinetown, to "Mr. Cellophane" from Chicago. The guy's an amazing actor, and he emotes the hell out of these tunes. He's a little bit of a ham, on the over-the-top side, to be sure, but in a cabaret setting, it works. Oh man, does it work."
The performances at Feinstein's/54 Below are Friday, March 24th, Saturday, March 25th, and Wednesday, March 29th. All shows are at7:00pm. Tickets start at $45 cover plus a $25 food and drink minimum. Please note that ticket prices are subject to change. To purchase tickets, visit 54below.com.
