Best in Shows, a star-studded cabaret evening benefitting the Humane Society of New York, will honor James L. Nederlander, (Jimmy) the President of The Nederlander Organization. Mr. Nederlander will be awarded the third annual Humane Society of New York's Sandy Fund Award in recognition of his deep concern and support of the needs of rescued animals. Mr. Nederlander has a special connection to The Sandy Fund, which is named in honor of the original canine star of Broadway's Annie. It was his father, James M. Nederlander, who produced the legendary musical, and so gave Sandy his very first acting job. Sandy quickly became a Broadway star, playing 2,363 performances of Annie on Broadway, and performed for two American Presidents at the White House.

The fourth annual Best in Shows - Broadway Legends Honor the Humane Society of New York, will be presented by Dorothy and Bill Berloni and will have music direction by Seth Rudetsky, who will also host the star-studded show featuring Broadway's brightest performers, joined by surprise two and four legged guests.

Previous Best in Shows have featured performances by John Bolton, Christian Borle, Tituss Burgess, Lilla Crawford, Robert Fairchild, Sutton Foster, Capathia Jenkins, Andy Karl, Andrea McArdle, Orfeh, Laura Osnes, Charles Strouse, and many more. This year's cast will be announced shortly.

The Sandy Fund of the Humane Society of New York was established to honor the memory of the rescue dog who originated the role of Sandy in the Broadway production of Annie, which opened on Broadway in 1977. The Fund provides for the needs of homeless dogs and cats.

Since 1904 the Humane Society of New York has been a presence in New York City, reaching out to animals in need when illness, injury or homelessness strikes. Open seven days a week, today its hospital and The Vladimir Horowitz and Wanda Toscanini Horowitz Adoption Center help more than 38,000 animals annually. HSNY's Adoption Center provides a safe haven- with no time limit - for rescued animals of all ages until permanent adoptive, loving homes are found. The clinic provides low-cost and free veterinary services ranging from wellness treatments to critical care for animals who would otherwise have nowhere to turn for life-saving help. Program and performers subject to change.

Tickets begin at $150. Main Dining Room Tickets include open bar and hors d'oeuvres.


Composer/lyricist and performer Matthew McCollum makes his Feinstein's/54 Below debut with an evening of ghost stories, both whispered and screamed. An evening in three parts (Songs For The Dead, Songs From The Dead, and The Little Deaths), you'll travel from the forgotten backwoods of Appalachia, to the glamour of 1940s Hollywood, to a Route 66 jamboree, to that undiscovered country itself, from whose bourn you'll get to return. Matthew won't promise a happy ending, but he guarantees an unparalleled group of performers, a total absence of jump scares, and a new collection of soulful, haunting melodies.

McCollum's music has been featured by the Williamstown Theatre Festival and Yale School of Drama. His musical, The Ballad of Brightwater, garnered acclaim at the ASCAP DreamWorks Musical Theatre Workshop, where it played for a sold out crowd in Los Angeles this February. Acting credits include "Masters of Sex" and "Judging Amy," and he has been seen on stage performing at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, Berkshire Theatre Group, 59E59, and the Yale School of Drama, where he received his MFA.
