Tony-Nominee Melissa Errico and Ryan Silverman To Offer A BROADWAY ROMANCE At Feinstein's/54 Below
After being paired as co-stars in two hit New York productions - first, Stephen Sondheim's dark and emotional Passion followed by Yip Harburg & Burton Lane's delicious and politically-edged fairy tale Finian's Rainbow, the dazzling duo of Ryan Silverman and Melissa Errico have gone on to appear together nationwide in symphony concerts, and in intimate cabarets. Great actors shine in great partnerships and this duo is one of those - a connection impossible to predict, moving from emotional rawness to full giddiness, and all points between.
Tickets are $50-$100 and can be purchased online at www.54Below.com or by phone at 646-476-3551. This show is part of Feinstein's/54 Below's Summer 2018 concert series: Duo Shows at 54 and will feature direction by Robbie Rozelle with music direction from Tedd Firth.
In concert and out of costumed character, Ryan and Melissa revel in their differences - his casual Canadian charm mixed with great baritone vocal strength, and her Manhattanite, quirky warmth and ebullience in the form of an exquisite lyric soprano. Now, for the first time, they have crafted a special full-length concert evening for Feinstein's/54 Below! Featuring an eclectic mix of solos and duets from Broadway and beyond, the pair will sing from the shows that they have appeared in together, shows they would love to appear in together, and tell tales of their showbiz world together.
