The Feinstein's/54 Below Halloween shows:
THE SONGS OF Matthew McCollum: SONGS FOR THE DEAD, OCTOBER 23 AT 9:30PM:
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.

NEW MUSICAL: A SCYTHE OF TIME, STARRING Lesli Margherita, OCTOBER 26 AT 9:30PM:
Join us for a spooky concert just in "time" for Halloween of this 2016 New York Musical Festival smash hit!
Inspired by two stories from Edgar Allan Poe, A Scythe Of Time takes us to London in 1881. The public can't get enough of the infamously sensational Blackwood Articles, in which writers take their own lives and, in the process of dying, record their experience with death. On the other side of town, our heroine Signore Zenobia, played by Lesli Margherita, embarks on a quest to unravel the mystery of the articles in an effort to save her own magazine, and finds time pressing down on her as she composes a Blackwood Article of her very own.
A bizarre tale of power and love, poetic justice, and bloody revenge, A Scythe Of Time shows us just how far one goes for fame and recognition in an absurd world. Winner of the Steele Spring Stage Rights publishing award! A Scythe Of Time has a book by Alan Harris, music and lyrics by Mark Alan Swanson, and will be directed by David Alpert and produced by Lisa Dozier King.
Featuring: Lesli Margherita (Matilda, Dames at Sea), PJ Griffith (Sleep No More, American Idiot), Brandon Brune (Misconception: The Last Gospel of Christmas, Les Misérables), Blair Alexis Brown (Adding Machine, Master Class), Matt Denglar (The Visit, A Little Night Music), Emily Claire Hughes (Junie B. Jones), Lance Olds (Carnival, Footloose), Danny Rutigliano (The Lion King, Billy Elliot) and Jesse Shuff.
