Have Faith! Mary Testa & Michael Starobin Set For 54 Below Shows, 11/2 & 11/9

Have faith in Mary Testa and Michael Starobin!

Musical theatre stalwart Mary Testa and noted Broadway orchestrator Michael Starobin team up for two 54 Below concerts on November 2 and 9 in support of their recent album HAVE FAITH and tickets are now on sale.

The official description of Mary Testa and Michael Starobin at 54 Below is as follows: "Mary Testa returns to 54 Below for a soulful, powerful evening of songs and stories. A Tony nominee for ON THE TOWN and 42ND STREET, Mary has appeared in the Broadway productions of WICKED, XANADU, GUYS & DOLLS, MARIE CHRISTINE and countless others. She received a 2012 Special Drama Desk Award for her performance in Michael John LaChiusa's QUEEN OF THE MIST. Mary and Michael Starobin collaborated on their 2014 album HAVE FAITH, a boldly unique and contemporary concept album. Now hear many of the songs from that album live, from Rodgers & Hammerstein to Bill Finn to Leonard Cohen... and beyond.

Michael Starobin is a Tony Award-winning orchestrator and nationally renowned musical director. Since his Drama Desk Award-winning Broadway debut as the orchestrator of SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE, he has had continued success. He was awarded a Tony for Best Orchestrations for his work on NEXT TO NORMAL, and his other Broadway credits include IF/THEN, ANNIE, THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE and ASSASSINS. He was recently the conductor and orchestrator for Disney's THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME and orchestrated the songs for TANGLED."
