54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, presents Two Thousand Miles: A New Musical in concert on August 30, 2023 at 9:30pm. Set in New York City, Two Thousand Miles follows a group of childhood friends from California. At the heart of the musical is Davis, a 27-year-old playwright who is trying to graduate college while juggling his new Lupus diagnosis. The friends come together for Davis as they're navigating life altering experiences of their own. Through their collective journeys, they show us how love can transcend illness and personal strife. This concert features a book by Alyssa Williams, music & lyrics by Hans Zanger, and direction by Giovanni Marine, with additional music by Taylor Guttadauro and additional lyrics by Jaclyn Nash. The concert will feature performances by Anthony Bologna, Jamie Boswell, Rebecca Lynn Goldfarb, Matt Henningsen, Giovanni Marine, Michelle Shapiro, Morgan Smith, Nik Sorocenski, and Tori Tiernan.
