The official description of Emerson Steele's 54 Below show is as follows: "You know that feedback you hear? 'Sorry, you're not right for this role ... you're not young enough, old enough, tall enough, short enough, MALE enough?!' So, what's a girl to do? Tongue in cheek, with humor and heart, with songs, stories, dances, and goofy antics, 2014 Theatre World Award winner, Emerson Steele, turns the norms upside down and, tonight, plays the roles she has always wanted to play and some she hopes to play in the future!

Emerson's introduction to Broadway and New York audiences as Young Violet in VIOLET was called "a strong Broadway debut" by NBC News, an "excellent performance" by She was blessed to be met with a lovely and warm embrace by the Broadway community and the press who referred to her as "a genuine revelation," a "talented newcomer," "feisty," "a very talented young singer," as well as "endearing, hearty-voiced."

54 Below invites you to a fun evening with Emerson and some special guests as they perform a range and variety of Broadway favorites, all the while spinning the "no's" into a resounding "YES"!!!"
