In her brand new show at 54 Below, Broadway's Andrea Burns (Beauty & The Beast, The Full Monty, The Ritz, In the Heights, and the forthcoming The Nance) presented a hilarious and at times moving evening that explores finding a state of grace at forty while reasserting that Latinas don't play. Weaving Broadway with pop culture, expect tunes by Sarah Bareilles, Stephen Sondheim, Celia Cruz, Peter Gabriel, and more as Andrea teamed up with her In the Heights Musical Director, Alex Lacamoire. Check out photos from her concert here!
