Photo Coverage: 54 Below Celebrates Frank Wildhorn with Leslie Odom, Jr. Janet Dacal, Andrienne Warren and Jane Monheit

This week, 54 Below is celebrating the music of Frank Wildhorn with some of Broadway's best singers, a reunion of one of his Broadway shows, and songs from a catalog that goes from Whitney Houston to Julie Andrews, from Hootie and the Blowfish to Johnny Mathis, and from Sammy Davis, Jr. to The Moody Blues. The performances on Dec. 5 and 6 starred Leslie Odom, Jr., Brandi Burkhardt, Janet Dacal, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Adrienne Warren, and Jane Monheit (12-5 only). Check out photos from the event below!

Over the past two decades, Frank Wildhorn has given us timeless stories and countless classics set to soaring scores. With eight Broadway shows, twenty original international shows, and almost 100 million records sold of his songs, Frank is one of this generation's most important songwriters.
