A year and half since her last NYC solo show, she's BACK by popular indifference! If you enjoy powerhouse vocals, witty banter, fairly great riffing, and dried pineapple rings...have we got a show for you?! Yes. Come feel the rush of a singer navigating through her break on today's pop hits, yesterday's theatre classics, and tomorrow's recent memories. You won't believe your eyes when you see Natalie lip sync to her own live vocals; It's uncanny! Get your tickets now before it sells out like last month!


The Bombshells
May 6 & 7 at Birdland-
BUY TICKETS!

The Bombshells (Tiffany Dissette, Heather Lundstedt O'Neill and Leah Sprecher) sold out the historic music room this past summer, when they made their New York debut. They were created in 2016 by three ladies and one fella looking to bring the musicality, sentiments and novelty of vintage female trio acts to modern audiences today. By blending Top 40 hits with the tight harmonies made famous by the Andrews Sisters, they bridge the gap between old and new, bringing joy to both young and more seasoned audiences. All of their arrangements are completely original and present songs you've heard a million times on the radio in a brand new way. Their swinging band will include bandleader/arranger David Lamoureux on drums.

Lesli Margherita: Rule Your Kingdom

How you know her: Matilda The Musical

She is a QUEEN. She is a BROAD. She RULES. Olivier Award winner Lesli Margherita (Matilda, Dames at Sea, Zorro) returns to Feinstein's/54 Below with a new take on her signature cabaret show which critics have hailed as "outrageous," "rip-roaring" and "fiercely original." With her take-no-prisoners attitude and self-deprecating humor, Margherita "inspires," "uplifts," and "slaps you across the face" - and let's be honest, everyone needs a good slap in the face every once in a while. From memorable favorites with a twist to new stories bound to become classics, Margherita's 70-minute showstopping set will leave you screaming "Yaaas!" Sparkle or do not; there is no try. RULE YOUR KINGDOM. Rule Your Kingdom written by Lesli Margherita will be directed & produced by Lauren Bass featuring musical direction & arrangements by Brett Ryback.
