Photo Flash: Alexandra Silber, Ann Harada And More Star In I WISH: THE ROLES THAT COULD HAVE BEEN At 54 Below
This past Sunday, October 27th, I WISH: The Roles That Could Have Been, returned to Feinstein's/54 Below, with a sold out crowd!
Everyone has dreams that we fear will pass us by. For actors those come in the shape and form of roles-whether they're grown up and become too old for that child star turn, to the soprano never being considered for the baritone lead, everyone has a song in their heart that they'll likely never get to see come to fruition with a crowd and in lights.
From the crazy amazing mind of Alexandra Silber is, I Wish: The Roles That Could Have Been. The evening again gave performers a chance to embody their "roles come true". The concert boasted some of Broadway's favorite performers for a night of surprise, in ways one would never imagine. I WISH will be back at 54 Below in February, April and June! More news to follow on what stars will pop up at future incarnations of this amazing 54 Below concert series!
The evening was again produced by Jen Sandler and had music direction by Ben Caplan.
